Light at the end of the tunnel


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am so happy I found this group. I am from the North East region of the US and have been struggling for about 10 years with what happened to me and after hitting a tipping point a few weeks ago I am finally at a point in life where I want to try to move on and forgive/forget as people like to say. I don't think I can ever forgive but I'm hoping to meet others who have gone through similar experiences and learn some healthy ways to cope and go about life. 😊

My sincere sympathies on your trauma. Please know we believe you, and that it was not your fault. This is a safe place, you share whatever you want at your own pace. 

10 years is a long time to carry such a burden. I hope you find what you are searching for here. This site offers a wonderful support system by our kind members, where we can share everything related to healing to just simple things in life. 

And yes, learning healthy ways to cope is a big part of it, I really like your attitude about being here :) 

Every story is unique, but we tend to relate to each other here. You can receive support, exchange advice and take part in other survivor´s experiences. 

If you would need anything at all, do not hesitate to DM me or another staff member of choice. Please check your DM for an extended welcoming. 

Hope to see you around,
