A proper introduction!


Recommended Posts

Hello, all. I decided to introduce myself more fittingly today. I wanted to navigate around a little before posting on this forum specifically, because it was a little daunting. 

I created this account because I've come to realize (very recently) that the things that happened have affected me, that I am not okay right now. And it's shameful for me to admit that to myself, that I am so, so obviously affected still. I wanted to connect with and support people who have went through similar, and in the little time I've been here, I think I made the right decision. I am grateful this place exists. 

Hope everyone is good.

Welcome (officially) to AS, @guiltyascharged! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through and that it's affecting you a lot right now. As you've probably seen from the site already, there are a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. You're not alone. I hope that being here will help you to heal. ❤️

P.S. Do you like Kpop? I'm going based off of your profile pics...trying to figure out who they are but I can't! :lol: I love kpop...nice to meet another fan! (Provided I've got this all correct haha...)

@guiltyascharged I am glad you have found us here.  I am sorry you are feeling shame for still being affected by your trauma. There is not time limit where we should just magically “be over it” please be gentle with your self on that.  I know for myself that what happened to me has affected me my whole life. I am finally finding some healing (AS has helped with that) Healing can happen be patient with yourself.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I hate that it's hurt that brought us together, but it's comforting to not be alone anymore. I've not discussed my past with anyone in real life, and I don't plan to, so to have a place like this feels priceless. I hope you all the best of luck in your own respective journeys. Thank you again for the kindness!

Hello Finchy, I am glad to be in the community. Thank you for helping with the site, and moderating it! To answer your P.S, you've got it all correct, he's Taeyong from NCT, haha. I love kpop too! Always cool to meet another fan, definitely.

Aww, you're welcome and thank YOU for your kind words! :) Ahh ok, from NCT! I'm not super familiar with NCT, though I like their songs. I just don't stan them. I mostly stan girl groups...Dreamcatcher, TWICE, Purple Kiss, Mamamoo, etc. But I do love BTS and SHINee as my boy groups. ❤️ Anyhoo, nice to meet you!! 😄
