Just to keep you informed on me, I went today and signed up to be a volunteer at our local rape/suicide crises center.
They also handle family sexual assault and other violent crimes. I feel I have a lot to offer since I'm an adult incest survivor.I want to help them realize they can heal and move forward with their lives after this has happened.

I'm looking forward to turning something bad in my life into something that can help someone for the better
Thanks for listening,
IC Gold

EXCELLENT!!!!

volunteering comes back to you tenfold - and I am sure the new clients you serve will appreciate your insight since you survived the same.

good for you!

((((Gold)))),

I think this is GREAT!!! I volenteered before my daughter came along for SOS (sex offence services, that is), and it was a truly gratifying move for me, having been a survivor of both rape and insestuous activity myself. I thought at first that it was going to be hard on me, but found as I helped others that I had a better grasp on healing and what had truly happened than I was giving myself credit for. I know you'll grw from this!

And beyond that, congrats to you for thinking so far outside of your own box!!! I think often of how to get outside of my own personal drama, and end up with 'what I need is a BUBBLE BATH", not "I should help others with my own time and energy becasue nones deserves to suffer alone". Wow.

But, it is hard as I recal, don't deprive yourself the bubble-batha nd letting go rituals that will help you through at times.

Hugs, ef

God bless you for your insight and wisdom!!!! What you sow in the life of others will always come back to you tenfold.

I did a lot of volunteering and they were all very enriching experiences!

~Love, RAS~

Now I've signed up for a divorce recovery workshop and support group. They meet weekly at a local church.

I'm hoping if I stay busy enough, I will not let myself go crazy and can get some healing and not backslide as often.

and think of all the GREAT friends and support you will grow - this is a GREAT start!!!!

keeping busy IS the key - helping ourselves to grow, learn, recover - help us discover WHO WE ARE - and what we want - is the healthy way to go about this.

good for you...GIANT STEPS!!!
