Great idea, txb!
i have a little collection of notes and cards that people have given me - but i never thought about writing down something positive that someone said. that could really help a lot.
ZUG - good job in reaching out - i know that is a difficult thing to do for many of us. feel free to kick it up to the next level and vent or rant or whatever - sometimes it helps to try and figure out what it is that is making us feel bad. or if you know already - to share it and get the affirmation that others get it, too. guaranteed - someone - probly many of us - will understand.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
