Frustrated -

i hope you'll see this. and i hope you'll reconsider leaving.

looking back, i noticed that several of your posts went unanswered. i can see that might have made you feel unwelcome or not accepted. i am sorry if that was the case.

i can only speak for myself - but sometimes i am pretty self-absorbed when i am going through something - and if a particular post does not related directly to me, i don't reply. or if it does apply to me - and i have no idea what to say - i keep silent. or sometimes i see something from someone i "know" better because they have been around longer and i will respond to them over someone who is relatively new. i am sorry if that happened to you.

you took a big step and a scary chance in signing up here to begin with - and even more risky is putting your issues and questions out there for everyone to see. you are to be commended for those acts of courage.

i hope you'll find the patience and forgiveness to give us another chance if this is what is bothering you.

on the other hand, if you dont think there is much to be gained for you here - then that is perfectly all right - do what you need to do. and all best wishes as you move on.

Yeah. I agree with Lee/Traveler.

Your monicker "Frustrated". You've been here about a month, and you're leaving already. I think that's a real shame. MS can be a really frustrating place at times; it can also be really engaging and a MAJOR source of inspiration and learning about CSA and the related issues that we all face.

Give yourself more than 1 month, Frustrated one, before giving up.

Frustrated, I know what it is like to want to cut and run. In fact I think I am in that process myself at a different level. I am keeping my posts in your lists thread, however. Please stay.

To be honest I am over whelmed with everything and looking to disconnect. I am very confused and struggling with newly recalled memories. This is effecting every aspect of my life and I need to get back on track. The only way I know how to do this is to shut down and shut it out the best I can.It's just too dark in here to see any other way. I appreciate the encouraging words I really do.

Unfortunately, CSA issues don't just disappear when we will them to go away. They will remain there until we deal with them. That is our lot. We have to work towards recovery or we will remain haunted by it for the rest of our lives.

Hi Frustrated,

Timely retreat is a strength, and you are the only one who knows what you need right now. If you need to withdraw, then that's what you need to do. If you need to leave the site, then that's what you need to do. Your internal compass is the only thing that can guide you. I would say that I hope you know you can drop out and come back whenever you want to, whether you officially leave the site or not.

Wishing you the time and space you need to lick your wounds.

Don

dear frustrated,
i, too, come and go as and when i feel the need
to retreat or return or recover or reflect
or connect or contact or confront or conceal.
this isn't a race, post at your own pace.
leave in peace, stay safe.


you are welcome here anytime.
