Hello Everyone, 

First of all, I would like to say thank you to the creators, admins, moderators, and members of this space. I am 20 days into my healing journey, and I've never felt so alone. I am grateful to have found a community of strong survivors: men, women, and non-binary individuals who understand what this feels like. 

I'm a pretty down to earth person. I like the slow and simple life. Most nights after work I'm just home in my sweats cooking dinner and watching The Office. I'm a very curious person so I love learning about and trying new things, BUT I also overthink everything so it takes time for me to work up the courage to do those new and potentially scary things. One of those new and potentially scary things I'd like to try is solo travel so if you have any tips, I am all ears! My favourite quality in a person is compassion and I believe this world could use a lot more of it. 

Be where your feet are; you're stronger than you know.


Peace and love,

Thank you all so much for welcoming me! Life seems a bit overwhelming at the moment so I am happy to have found a safe space to vent, cry, learn, heal, or simply be. The words of support here in messages and forums are extremely encouraging. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
