Support group meetings, what's holding you back?
So often someone will say to me, “I'd really like to go to a support group, BUT..."
“I really need to talk to someone who understands what I’m going through, BUT..."
“It would really be nice to spend time with other adults, BUT..."
“I feel so alone in what I'm going through, BUT..."
What's holding them back?
The same thing that holds all of us back: Fear. Fear of the unknown, fear that we don't belong. Fear that we will say or do the wrong thing. Fear we won't know the right answers. Fear that we might have to talk in front of other people. Fear that someone might see what a mess we really are. BUT… What if I go and I hear that others are having the same experiences as I am? What if I learn new things to try or share some of my own ideas? What if we don't talk about disabilities at all, we just support each other? What if I laugh or enjoy myself? What if I feel like I'm understood?
So I ask you, what’s holding you back?
