1 To learn
2 To receive support
3 To give support
you covered all the reasons for my coming here, staying here, and continuing to stay, post, and read here in the future.
i came to learn. after learning, support. after leaving, more support. and now, i continue to learn, and be touched by the stories i read from real people, like one posted today by matty, and FEEL inside, because i KNOW what it is like having been through it all.
i stay to lend a hand wherever i can. and sometimes i just say nothing, because nothing is all that can be said.
so to those who post here, and see no or little replies, watch the "counts" on how many times what you post is "read".
sometimes we read, and i know in my case, i'm to overcome with the emotions to reply. so i say nothing. but know what your posting is being read. maybe you change one little thing for someone out there, struggling with leaving. giving them the strength to overcome adversity. giving them the strength to endure. giving them the strength to leave. and showing them, not only is there life after the watchtower, there is happiness.
and sometimes, even more than you could ever have hoped for in all your life.
