I have noticed members tend to share their stories in this forum. Although this is not a big deal, it would be better if personal stories were only shared in the appropriate forum "Share Your Story".

The main reason is safety, this is a public forum, and therefore visible by everyone. I always move stories in the right forum because I feel such sensitive topics would be better addressed in a safe room rather than here.

The other reason is that personal stories are usually triggering, and by posting them under "Share Your Story" you let other members know that the content of your post could be triggering.

Thank you,
