First Time Hello

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Liesl.

I've never interacted with other survivors, in person, or over the internet & am a little uncertain if this is going to be safe. But I'm going to try this.

So, Hello There :unsure:

I'm a survivor of childhood sexual abuse & was silenced for the last 20+years. Its only been the last few years that I've broken that silence. It felt great yet terrible at the same time. My life is constantly changing. For the better.

Hi Liesl,

Welcome to AS! I am glad that you have broken the silence, I understand the feeling of being uncertain about interacting here. Everyone here is so supportive and wonderful and I hope that you can get the support you need here. I am sorry for the reason that you are here but I am glad that you are here and you did a great thing in introducing yourself. You are not alone, whenever you need anything we are all here for you. Sending you a big hug if okay :hug:

Pm me if you need anything I can understand how you feel I am still a little new here myself.

Hi Liesl,

Welcome!! :)

I hope you feel at home soon. :flowers:

It's very brave of you to try this, and we welcome you with open arms. It can be a bit scary, and we all understand that, so please take all the time you need to look around and get to know some of the wonderful people here. There's a lot of support here, and I am sure you will get that here as well.

I am sorry for what you went through as a child, and also that you have been silenced for so long. That must have been very painful, dealing with the things in your head and not being able to say anything about it. You won't be silenced here, hun, you have a voice, and you matter. :)

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have, ok??

:hug: = if ok??
