This is SJ (Sparkling Jedi) nickname. Can't even say my first name, as even my first name gives me away online and publicly. Here for...just looking. Can't really say why. 

Just here. Can't really delve into explaining my interests. Those are also online. No point in introducing myself. Just a person represented by a green eye avatar, with some history. My intro, then, will remain without any information. As some of us are more public profile than others. 

If you feel you have to move my writings elsewhere feel free to. No explanations necessary. Just inform me of any change.  

I'm simply here because of past experiences. In survival and living mode.

Thanks. SJ

Hello there @SparklingJedi and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna. :flowers:

I also choose to not give away my name here, not just for safety reasons. This is my safe spot to share whatever is on my mind without having to mind mean gossip, and I hope you'll find the same comfort here too. You don't have to share anything to feel uncomfortable with, just take things your pace. As @8888 said, only certain posts are available for non-members. 

This platform is a great way to connect with fellow survivors, to always sense support and no judgement. Please know, that we believe you. I am sincerely sorry about your trauma and your pain, you carry no guilt in this. Sending my best towards your way :supportu:

- W ☀️
