Intro

Post by Saraswati » Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:55 am

Hi,

I have just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I was referred here by friend that believed I would benefit from being in communication with people who may better understand the impact past trauma in childhood can have especially in adulthood. I'm optimistic about this journey of healing and having hope for the future.
My motivation came from attempting to gain closure from one of my abusers and was totally knocked down and belittled. I am experiencing emotions which surprised and confused me even though I thought I would be ready for whatever outcome I got as long as I faced them head on. I have tried multiple outlets to deal with this but they never felt right.
Soo that's a summary of my story..... hopefully I haven't made a mistake in posting like this as I've never posted before.

Thank you for reading and allowing me to join
