Luna- Posted June 9, 2010 Report Share Posted June 9, 2010 We have had some stormy seas here in the last little while. Opinions and experiences clash, emotions such as pain and anger, expressed or suppressed, surface, which polarise us - and what should be a sanctuary turns into a battleground, with ripples that run throughout the community.I’d like to declare a truce. This CAN be resolved and I suggest we begin this process. As idealistic as it may sound, I truly believe this is achievable. I believe passionately in the online support group format as an agent for healing.The intention of this forum is: “I am in pain – I hear your pain.”Being human, not everyone can hear everyone else's pain because we have pain of our own and another’s pain can trigger our own. Fortunately there are enough of us here, that everyone can be heard. As I see it, one of the big causes of more pain is a “trigger – being triggered” situation. How can we organise ourselves so as to avoid this? How can we make it so there is sanctuary space for every single one of us? Let’s all brainstorm and discuss this.The floor is open. Please deposit all weapons, including sharp tongues in the lockers provided. So to speak. We are more alike than we are different. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
