firelily Posted November 16, 2017 Share Posted November 16, 2017 I wonder mostly about long-time members who decided to be a part of this community. Has this forum enriched your lives, and if so, in what way? Sometimes as I write a response here and think "dammit... I should listen to that advice myself!". I had already a couple of revelations, especially when talking to people about self-respect and putting your own needs first. But sometimes I also realize my own past selfishness from another perspective that I was blind to. In this way it works for me like a group therapy - but better, cause it's written and you can always go back to it! When individual therapy fails because it's hard to make changes, it helps to see other people struggle with the same thing. So maybe you first looked here for some advice, but stayed, because you found being a part of community still serving your growth more than just asking questions? Or did you look for opportunity to give advice online because you're in a help profession yourself and needed some practice? Or maybe you spent so many hours scrolling through cat pictures that you decided to do something more productive with your Internet time? What was your story, motivation to join and stay in this community, and what did it offer you? Link to comment
