Monthly Wrap Up - October 2021
Another month up and only two months until we call it on 2021, what a month it has been! We’ve had states go in and out of lockdown, earthquakes and the joy of summer finally starting!
With everything that has been going on, it has been incredible seeing the strength and resilience of everyone here in the forums! The support, compassion and vulnerability being shown has been awe-inspiring. I want to give a shout out to everyone who has joined this month. It is a tremendous step forward, and good on you for taking it!
I would also like to say a massive thank you to our top contributors for this month @initae89 , @CRAZYGRANNY , @WildeReformed , @BonsaiBeginner , @requiem4me and @Tryingeveryday. Seeing you guys jump in, share your stories and offer support to others has been really wonderful and has embodied the true spirit of the Counselling Online Community, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
I also want to give a big shout out to @Alvarosyd for six months sober! You've absolutely smashed it out of the park, good on you!!! I think everyone here can join in and give you a massive pat on the back.
Quote of the month
