Absolutely!

Urso, no worries about your writings. My response to something you wrote is MY business (unless you were to intentionally write something inflammatory, which you did not). It's based upon MY own experiences in MY life, which you have no knowledge. Therefore, it's not YOUR responsibility. I was making the point that I made a choice to get out, when I found myself feeling what I felt (I think I even responded at the time that it wasn't a judgement on the poem itself). If anything, it shows the potency of your poetry.

I am all for being sensitive to those who are healing. But the flip side of that is being so supersensitive to what you are writing, that it no longer helps you. And that would be yet another tragedy in our lives.

Heh, we're spending so much time apologizing to each other! Let's get back to what's on our minds! I'll see you guys in the other topics!

Guys, don't worry, no one is trying to tell you not to talk about your abuse...

I just want this to be a safe place for everyone... and not everyone is at the same place at the same time...

I like the idea of putting "May Trigger" at the top of a post and then leaving a few lines blank... That way, people can choose if they're ready to read a graphic post or not...

I'm glad so many people gave feedback... Now, we just have to try to remember to use "May Trigger" at the beginning of the post...

And this isn't set in stone, we can keep talking about it and adjusting it, or even getting rid of it if it doesn't work...

Just try to remember that there are lots of people just starting to deal with their abuse that come here, and we want them to find support - not get scared off! \:D
