Hi everyone,

I hope you are doing well. I signed up for this forum hoping to make friends, and be a friend.

I'd like to learn more about good coping strategies, support and perhaps be supported.

I hope this is ok for now, I'm still a bit nervous

Hi Tangerine,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what brought you here but do know you have found a very supportive community. You are not alone. You will find many supportive and understanding members who you will be able to relate to, and they to you. 

It's also ok to be nervous and take your time. There is no pressure to share or interact before you are ready and comfortable. We all have different speeds and different ways we like to interact. Just know that it will get more comfortable with time. 

Feel free to look around until you get that footing you need. We will be here when you are ready. I wish you nothing but the best as you begin moving down this path that we call healing.

Mary

Welcome to AS, @Tangerine_VVV! I'm glad you found your way here. :) You've come to the right place to make friends and to be a friend (I love how you worded that). I'm sorry for what you've been through...it was undeserved and not your fault. But you are in a great community now, one that provides a lot of support and can teach you what you wanna learn. ❤️ Take your time exploring. I wish you all the best. You're not alone!

Wow,

Hello all, I didn’t expect such a welcome. I was so nervous yesterday, so it feels a bit unreal. Thank you so much all!

@MeBeMary thank so much for your message. It’s so nice that I can take it at my own pace. It feels a bit better with no pressure and when someone else like you type that. One day at a time, I really like that. I wish you all the best too, and I hope your day is ok

@mini.finch hey thank you for the welcome and for encouragement. I hope I worded things ok, I didn’t really know how to intro. I wish you all the best too, and I hope you are having an ok day. I like your icon.

@snmls hey I appreciate your time and saying hello. I hope you are having a good or an okay day, and that things are somewhat ok on your end. "Braver than she believes", I love that in your profile. Thank you for understanding!

@8888 Thank you for saying hello, and encouraging for support. I hope I can support other people too; this feels overwhelming (but in a good way). I will message if there any questions. I hope your day is ok. Thank you for saying it wasn't my fault. 

@Jason92 Thank you for saying hello and welcome home. That’s nice. I hope for peace and healing, and I hope others find peace and healing too. Thank you, I will reach out if ok. I hope your day is going all right or somewhat ok!

I like your intro. Short and sweet but still says quite a bit. :) 

I’ll be your friend. I’ll add you to my follow list right now. You’ll find it’s pretty easy to make friends here. We all have the same goal after all. We all want to make friends with other people who won judge us. :supportu:

I was nervous when I was new. I think we all were. Don’t worry. I think you’ll fit in just fine. :aswelcomesu:

Hello and welcome here! I am Wanna btw   :flowers:

I am sincerely sorry for your trauma and the pain that comes with. This is a good place to explore different coping strategies, we discuss many different techniques. We also talk a lot about therapy and creating a support system. You choose how much you' like to share, we are here for you! 

Of course you'll be supported, that is what we are here for. :notalone: You can throw me a PM at any time, for questions, thoughts or just some chat/venting. 

Hope you're having a lovely day/night

@SociallyAwkward Thank you so much – it’s a relief how people felt the same and it’s nice to get some encouragement. I’m still learning how the forum works so please bear with haha. I totally agree, it would be nice to make friends with people who won’t judge us. The outside world can get a tad too much. Thank you for saying I'll fit in -- I hope you’re having a good day or night 🌞🌙

@WannaMoveOn Thank you for such a sweet message. It’s really good to know I’m not alone. Creating a support system is so important, and also learning new coping strategies and techniques.  It makes me happy that I can send you a message though I’ll still be mindful as not to overwhelm. I appreciate your welcome! I hope you are having a lovely day or night yourself 🌞🌙
