SHARING WITH PEERS IS THE GREATEST SUPPORT

 

859547B2-D7C6-468B-AE18-D9B9A91389B0.jpeg

Just wanted to share with everyone these perfect words for today. There's something special connecting with others that share and understand your struggles and pain which is sometimes difficult if you know another doesn't really feel your experience in the same personal way. I've only just really started accessing these forums and there is amazing support and rescources available. I've actually had the app for quite a while but never really explored into it too much, most probably due to the headspace I was in at the time but it's very obvious that's when I should have tried because it's given me more than I realised. Like the words I've shared above it's also about sharing your own successes, insight, understanding and wisdom from your own personal journey. You never know the impact your words and insight can help another at a crucial time when that's exactly what they needed to hear. 
like I've already shared having Lived Experience peer workers walking along side of individuals that struggle to be really heard can make the difference in someone's journey, it's invaluable and the more this area of peer support grows within a whole range of services there could be so many more positive outcomes in so many ways that could possibly effect that person's choices effectively before things get worse.

Re: SHARING WITH PEERS IS THE GREATEST SUPPORT

Just dropping by to say I can't support this highly enough @Sandy-66 

Pressing the button didn't feel like enough!

I totally agree. My biggest growth has come from connection with others and hearing their stories. But also through sharing my own and realising the meaning my own journey can have for someone else.

So glad you found the Forums
