@D£stiny welcome to After Silence. I am sorry for the reason that brought you here but am happy that you feel comfortable reaching out. The first thing I wanted to say is YOU ARE A SURVIVOR!! There is no doubt in my mind that you are. You did what you needed to do to survive what happened to you and help you get to where you are today.  Their is no book or rules that we follow that dictate whether or not it is ok to call us survivors. We are ALL survivors for doing what is need to keep us going. I’m sorry that you feel alone because probably most of us at one point in our healing journey have felt that way. I know I did. Honestly I did right up until the day I joined AS. You are not alone now. We are all here for you however you need us to be. We are all here to help you on your healing journey . Please don’t hesitate to reach out when you are ready❤️ Sending you safe hugs and support :hug:

Welcome @D£stiny to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  You are a survivor!  You don't have to be especially strong or have any special qualities to be considered a survivor.  I hope in time you will feel more like a survivor.  Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready.  If you have any questions feel free to message me.

Hi Destiny.

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you endured as a child and the struggles you face. It doesn't matter how long ago the trauma was, you survived it and are a survivor. We accept and validate you here at AfterSilence. You are not alone. You will find many that understand what you have gone thru and what you still go thru.

I am glad that you reached out. It takes courage to take that step. I wish you many more forward steps as you continue down this path called healing.

Mary
