Hi everyone,

Please know that the Forum Guidelines have received another wee update to include a section as follows:

Expressing Strong Emotions
It is understandable that you may feel strong emotions, or be triggered, by what you read from time to time. Be mindful that some members may still be living with their abuser or are not yet in a place where they can handle strong criticism against them. If you feel anger towards another member’s abuser, please be careful with your choice of words when responding. Trigger warnings will be changed, as necessary.

It can be found within SECTION 3: POSTING https://isurvive.org/join-our-forum/for ... s/#Posting
Your continued use of isurvive.org will be seen as an acceptance of/ agreement with these changes.
You are important
