I am working through the sense of being targeted and letting it go, but not pretending an "elephant did not walk into the room".

Last night I spent in the company of a wonderful group of women whose lives have been touched deeply by suicide.  We had a public creative presentation recently.  For me it was important as a thing to go to and fulfill my small part in it, but I could not stay and listen to all their stories.  They understood and did not see me as rude. I hope this will become more of a longer term catch up support group irl ...face to face.  Fingers crossed.

 

In the meantime all gestures of support for ME, when I am vulnerable on the forum have been deeply needed and appreciated.

Re: Fragile

Hi @Appleblossom 
It sounds as though you have found comprehension and connection with the group of women that you spent yesterday evening with and that you're hopeful this may be ongoing – that's great.

I am not sure if your first statement refers to tensions on the forum or to something in the rest of your life? As always, please know that members are welcome to email the forums team if they require support with interractions/relationships on the forums. Those who are not already familiar with the following guide about self care and conflict, may like to have a look: https://saneforums.org/t5/Forums-news-and-feedback/Forum-Guides/m-p/105963#M1039

I re-read this thread from time to time ... to ground myself, reflect generally and remember  where I have been and the support I have received.

Re: Fragile

Thanks @Hamsolo01 

 

I am also unsure about privacy and publicly sharing on the forums and what the full consequences are. Any one can take any thing in any way.  Although its anonymous, it is still possible to identify. I hope I dont regret my time here. At the time I have posted, it has seemed essential to me.  Lately I begin to feel I should be "grown up" enough now to do without the forums, and that the forums dont need me, they have taken on a vital MH role in online space. At first it felt like breaking new ground in mental health, but if I leave, then meaningful human connections will be broken. I am not ready to do that, so I still show up here.  Attachment stuff is huge for me.
