Hey! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that helps out with TWLOHA... You've made such a difference in my life! So, thank you! And also, I was wondering if you guys were planning any events in Ontario (canada) soon!
Hey, thanks for your support! We're so glad to have been a part of your story. You can keep an eye on our calendar to see where we're going in the future: http://www.twloha.com/events.php
Love is a complicated thing, but sometimes people seem to forget that. The hard part is the people you're talking about who don't understand probably want to understand and are trying in the ways they know how. When they're doing something as a way to support you that isn't working, you're allowed to say what you need. So one answer for your question is to work hard to know yourself, to learn how to self-soothe, and to boldly tell the people who say they love you what you need from them if they want to help or support you. Healing looks different for everyone -- make it your own.
I really enjoy having this chat to just talk to people all around in the TWLOHA community, I am just wondering, is there anyway we could stay in contact.... or have something roughly like this? A message board or something? I dont know... might be neat
I think this is a really awesome idea. I would love to stay in contact in some way the people around here. I think it would be a totally awesome positive place to pop in and out of when you need it!
Just want to drop this here:
i've been where a lot of you guys are and it does eventually get better. If you slip up that doesn't mean you went backwards, it just means there was a bump in the road. Take it like this: if you are running up a hill, and trip, you didn't roll all the way back down the hill. Just tripped. Get your friends, family, and faith to pick you back up again. There's strength in community and you can get through anything. i know today is a really hard day for some people, but really it's just another day. Instead of thinking about how today sucks, think about how awesome tomorrow can be if you make it awesome.
Thanks for sharing your encouragement with everyone :)
