  11. hi!

    Hey I am seeing a therapist as well. If you ever need to talk you can private message me anytime.
  12. Last night I got quite the honor... of being the newest publicity director beginning in July. I'm a little freaked because my best friend is actually the one with the degree in PR. We laughed about that when I called her with the good news. Looks like I'll be brushing up on skills I haven't used in decades and OMG I will have to wear make up daily again.

    Hi, @darklollix I also only have a therapist for support so I understand that struggle and how alone that is. I am sorry for what brought you here and I’m sure you will find more than just answers to your questions. So many safe hugs is that’s okay
  16. hi!

    Hey guys, I'm darklollix <3 I decided to give this forum a try, since I often struggle with it all. I don't really have anyone to talk to except for my therapist. I don't want to really talk to people who don't understand either. I just want a bit of help when I need to and to have some long time questions answered. Hope y'all have a nice day ♥

  18. I'M TOXIC

    During the last couple months my life has fallen apart and my heart shattered to many times to count. i am just done trying to pick up the pieces its like a puzzle and they wont fit anyway. i used to think i was a good person but i guess that was a lie i told myself to keep going. im coming to the realization that im not a very good person but rather some would say toxic and that hurts to say, but like they say the truth hurts. i dont know where to go from here. i guess realizing the things that i am i am begging to question my behaviors that lead to the assults. example... if i hadnt gotten into my moms cabnet that day maybe the assults from her never would have taken place, i understand yes i was four but i should have known there would be consequences to my actions and although i could never have guessed they would be what they were, i did deserve that punishment. i wanted to look at adult things thus my mother teaches adult things. no i question with the other sexual assults even the most recent. what could i have done different to keep it from happening, did i show an interest, i dont know it just sucks that when all said and done i did this to myself and have NOBODY to blame besides myself. i wanted this entry to mean something and i guess it didnt go where i wanted it to other than continueing to realize the truth of the matter, and yes it is crushing to know that im not a good person in anyway shape or form never have been never will be i will always just be toxic.

    Welcome, @Willow1980 - wishing you all the best in your healing process! I'm sorry you have reason to be here but am hopeful that you feel supported here.

    Welcome, @Rian - someone very close to me shares your name, although spelled Ryan. It'a a fine name if I say so, myself. Wishing you peace, comfort and healing - I'm glad you are here among us - this truly is a great community. Best wishes to you, Capulet
  26. Hello all!

    Hi @rakit Fellow Canadian here! I want to welcome you as well, and I hope you will find a sense of community here, because what we go through can make us feel very isolated. I am glad your therapist suggested the forum.

    Hi @Rian, I know it can take a long time to start to talk about things, I was the same, and it's ok. It is totally up to you what to share and when, we are here to listen when you are ready. Sometimes it can be hard to put words to our experience. I wonder if there is one aspect of your current struggle that you could write about? I wish you all the best, and welcome.
