I've gotten word that the fist thread of g.a.s.o. has reached its posting limit and we need to start a new one! grin

If you asked me what my biggest legacy to MS is I would never had guessed it was this topic.

It's also that time of year here at the college when all the orientation activities are happening which was the root of these threads.

So enjoy and do something wonderful for your self and ask for a standing ovation. You'll be pleased by the response.

cheers!

see the original here!

This is an awesome thread, though I must admit it took quite a while to read smile I am impressed by those that opened up and asked for their standing ovation and moved by the responses that have been given.

One of the things I enjoyed about the WoR at Kirkridge last year is the piano that's in the main meeting room. It gave me a place to ground myself - even in the middle of the night - not to mention to relax me and bring peace.

I was asked to play something the last morning. I still remember the heart-pounding silence when I sat on the bench. But it's what happened after that I can never forget. When I stopped playing there was applause. I didn't think much at first because I kinda assumed there would be a polite response from everyone. But when I stood and turned around, my legs almost gave way beneath me.

Everyone in the room was on their feet.

Now, with all the years I've played and been involved in different events, I've started to get used to applause, although the occasional ovation always felt great. But this was different. This was from my peers! Guys suffering from SA and working at opening up to each other. Wet eyes, dry eyes - and standing. I'll never be the same.

I just want to take a minute and give everyone that was at that WoR a STANDING OVATION. Then I want to give another for all the people here. Whether fellow survivors, friends, or family - my heart has been moved many many times by the love and acceptance "within these walls".

You are all worthy of a standing ovation!

Is it okay if I bump this post up to the top again? I just think it is a good one. I hope no one minds.

Thank you, my loving brothers,

Not that these are all for me, but I have never been bashful about accepting, um, more, usually, then my fair share. I really enjoy this post, thank you Curtis St. John, and all of the brothers here, big and little, for this post, for my healing, for support and conviction.

There is so much bad in this world, so much worse in THE abuse, but here, here in MS, in this thread, is such a wonderful, positive, external validation that it makes all that other stuff, fade, for a moment, for a day, for a lifetime.

When I read this post, I was there, in my mind's eye, Curtis, in that auditorium, at that time, and I support and am supported.

You are all my support and my family,

Thank you,

The lone horn sounds, the lights dim, the spotlight on a single man, in the center of the gymnasium.
Then, the lights turn up slowly and as they touch the masses in the audience, the hush of the room senses the thunderous applause of hundreds of hands, joined together in a single thought, to support and identify the man, Derdlecar.

DERDLECAR! .., DERDLECAR!.., DERDLECAR! and the crowd chants to a deafening roar, and the lights begin to shake! WooHoo! Yay!! WooHoo! Yay!!WooHoo! Yay!!


You ARE the man!

Sam

Curtis and all you guys - i was humbled reading this because this is me: afraid to draw attention to myself for fear of looking foolish. I need to be in control...not need...NEEEDDDD. Since coming here and finally talking about the effects on CSA on my life, I'm starting to (starting to mind you) be ok with making an ass out of myself and feeling out of control.

and so in that spirit

I WANT A STANDING OVATION!!!

I have been back and forth on this thread for a while trying to gain the courage to follow the others. Even though its only a text and not in person I've found it difficult but here goes.

To all who have come here and done this before me.
CLAP,CLAP, CLAP, CLAP,CLAP,CLAP, CLAP, CLAP,CLAP,
CLAP,CLAP, CLAP, CLAP,CLAP,CLAP, CLAP, CLAP,CLAP
and
I WOULD LIKE A STANDING OVATION

Thank you and peace and Happy Thanksgiving to all

Tanis2105 (Kevin)

Just discovered this thread. And so glad I did. Haven't read both part but just skipped around. You guys are amazing. I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face. This is the kind of warmth and positive support and cameraderie that I have longed for all my life. Maybe it is "only" online but the love is coming through loud and clear. Thanks to you all for this. I am actually feeling emotion intensely and it is a good thing - and very unfamiliar.
Blessings!!!
(And a STANDING OVATION to all who post here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I want to give standing ovation for all of you guys here at MS:
- for all new members - congratulation on courage to look for help, healing, experience and additional resources;
- for some struggling survivors: I'm deeply moved by stories of some survivors: some brothers are held in abusive environment against their will, some are dealing with difficult health issues, some have problems at home and work, some are without home/work, some can't get out of bed, some are easily triggered, some can't sleep, many have problems with intimacy but all are trying to do some change for better - all you guys deserve standing ovation for your courage and strength to be here with us!
- for spouses, wives, husbands, partners, friends - it must be extremely difficult to be around survivor sometimes, you have my hat off for that, you all are giving more than ordinary human being can take! THANK YOU!
- for experienced members - you guys are giving terrible good lessons to all of us how to be supportive to others in communication, how to make safe boundary, how to stay focused on healing, how to beat passive stance and become proactive in our lives, and how to love and share intimacy with our spouses/partners - I hope we all can become more supportive to each other here at MS avoiding some fights and learning to share positive energy;
- for all people who need some human touch, warmth, hug, couple of encouraging words. You all are not alone, you deserve the best from life and you all have a lot to offer so here is standing ovation for all of you:

CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP;
CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP;
CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP;
CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP; CLAP;

Last night I took a huge step and went way out of my comfort zone and talked to my wife. I have significant trust issues, compiled by self asteem issues. Her opinion of me means the world so she is the hardest to open up to. But I did it!

I NEED A STANDING OVATION!!!!!

Brilliant! But you have to actually make the ask before you can get the standing O. Self empowerment is a part of the project. laugh

Oh still! Don't take your things down, they're wonderful.... Here, read this...http://www.malesurvivor.org/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=127454#Post127454 Maybe it will help.
We're ready to give you a standing ovation but the power comes from the actual asking for it... You gotta say "I want a standing ovation!!!"

You deserve it!

Cheers!

Hey Still . . . glad to see you around. Always appreciated how hard you work to get out the message. Not a big visitor to the off-topic so I didn't see this before.
