Beginning my healing journey.

Hello all,

I have recently begun to start my healing journey and have come here looking to find support and to connect with others who have gone through similar experiences. I do not have much support in real life aside from therapy. I would also like to support others and share in moments of joy and sorrow - whatever it may be. I wish to learn about myself, be able to share my story and experiences, listen to others, and become a better person along the way. I am honestly kind of nervous to be here, but I am taking a step. I am trying my hardest to have as much hope as I can. Thank you for having me here!

Hello h-o-p-e (nice choice of a name!), welcome to After Silence :flowers: I am Wanna. 

I want to start out with sharing my sympathies, I am truly sorry for your trauma and pain. Please know that we will believe you.

It's alright to be nervous, this is after all a big step. You are being brave and I hope this platform will match your wishes. 

After Silence is a place to do just what you described. To have some extra support, to connect and share with other survivors, to have a safe place whatever turn life might take. Also, the members are doing a wonderful job supporting another. Giving others advice can help yourself too, I am happy you want to do that. 

Have a look around, feel free to browse, and once you feel ready, we will be here for you! :notalone:

Stay safe, 

- Wanna ☀️

@missfrier Thank you so much for the welcome and support! I'm glad to be here and it's already making me feel less alone. This seems like a very good community; I'm glad I found it.

 

@WannaMoveOn I know I already responded to your message, but I wanted to thank you here as well! I very much appreciate your support. Being believed has been a huge problem for me, as no one around me believes me, so I think it will be very helpful to be here. I'm also a firm believer in helping others, so that will be good as well.

 

@MeBeMary Thank you for your sympathies and your support! It does mean a lot to me. And I love your profile picture as well! Mine is my kitten Lumi, who I just got about two weeks ago. He has really been helping me :throb:

 

@8888 Thank you for your empathy and your support, I greatly appreciate it! It's nice to hear it wasn't my fault and that I'm doing well by taking this step, thank you.

 

Take care everyone.

@h-o-p-e Having people question your credibility when it comes to such traumatic issues is jarring. I am sad to hear that nobody believes you. That will change with this community, you deserve that!  :)
