On line Support

Have you ever felt like you were the only one going through a certain situation and no one could possibly understand?? Would you be surprised to hear that you are not alone and somewhere in this vast world someone is going through exactly what you are.

What I am referring to is the forums. Pick a topic, or a physical or emotional problem and there is a forum out there for it. I have nothing but good things to say about forums because I met my good friend Cassie on of all places an Australian friendship forum. I also belong to a weight loss forum and find amazing support from women and men of all ages who struggle with keeping the pounds off. It is good to know that you are not alone and it is an incredible support system. You are never judged and when you falter there is someone to get you right back on track. Another plus is that sometimes you don't feel like you can tell anyone, even your spouse or your best friend. On a forum you can remain totally anonymous. No one has to ever know anything personal if you don't wish to divulge that kind of information. You can tell all, purge your soul if you will and never feel like it is going to come back to haunt you. Once you post your problem other people can read about it and offer advice or just kind words, it is like therapy online.

On the topic of forums Cassie and I have discussed the possibility of providing one on our kidsgoals site. We will keep you posted as that develops.

Have a wonderful day
