New topics to connect in -
This month I'm listing all the new topics here. Considering there's quite a few new members and new topics, you may like to connect and support one another in these threads.
- Defend, defeat, decide.
- What do you do if you have little support?
- Covert Narcissists and the ruthless trauma they eventually serve you
- How do I stop
- I never thought I was an addict
- Detachment, letting go, self-care
Being a community of supporting one another, we wanted to recognise some great support going on in the community.
Thank you to @Sallos for your warm support for others this month! You have shared your experience in other to inform others, bringing encouragement and motivation! I really like this analogy that might be helpful for everyone today
"I've always likened the process of habit-breaking to the wearing-in of a new pair of shoes: New shoes are generally uncomfortable for a period of time as the stubborn material renders itself to the shape of your foot. This process can be agitating and it may be tempting to revert back to wearing your old shoes that, whilst worn out and ugly, are familiar and comfortable. However, if you persist with wearing the news shoes they'll soon feel just as good if not better than your old pair! As with the new shoes, forming new habits can be trying but with time can become effortless!"
