    hey dajwa

    i relate to troubles following what people are saying, sometimes. not sure what exactly you mean about getting your society around you tbh

    fort is a peer support group: a bunch of people who have been abused, coming together and talking of how this experience affected our lives and what do we do about the aftermath of this trauma. there are no counselors so about answers - id say theres plenty, and they all contradict each other you pick what works for you and skip the rest. thats the basic idea.

    glad youre free, whatever was the story, and hope you integrate back into society smoothly

    Hi dajwa

    Glad you are back in the community. Had a spell when I was away from people I knew well. Remember when I returned how it took me a while to pick up where I had left off with friends...didn't recognise some of their kids...they had grown like beanstalks during the time I had been away - last saw them as babies and now they were at school. Found it best to take it slowly...give myself time to catchup and rebuild my support and social network. I hope that joining our community helps you as you continue to find your way in your world.
    Rest in my arms precious child; cradled and warm. You are safe. The war is over.

    oh i see what you mean now. i agree, its a great approach, to hear yourself speak and to keep in mind that its people youre talking to, not inanimate objects. i think many people forget it, and many conflicts can be resolved by just this awareness alone

    ps: threads are group discussions, we all respond to the conversation, no need to address anyone specific

    Get the trouble with words thing...sometimes when I read what I have written/hear what I have just said I think "sheesh that doesn't say what I mean" have to go back and correct it.

    Like you I love words, using words like paint, my more abstract word pictures...colourful...disconnected. Meaningful to me their creator but incomprehensible to others.

    For you some oranges, apples and milk for your bucket
