Does anyone else here ever see a great post here, realize the post is many years old and there are no other posts from that person?

Did they not find enough benefit from the Mighty? Is it something better than that? Is it worse?#Depression #curiosity #StayStrong #helpothers #itisnotover

Quiet & Shy

I hang out with a group of people from time to time that view me as being shy and quiet. I never believe them. I knew I was an outgoing person and I can strike a conversation with someone when I notice we have stuff in common, but with this group we just have different interests, so their conversations don't really interest me, which in turn, awakens my silence. I wonder who made up the rule that being quiet in a group of people meant that you were a shy person? I wonder how many people that were dubbed as shy, are not and are just told they are by those around them. I wonder if I have ever called someone shy just because I didn't understand their silence. This will now be something I will be mulling over the next week 😂😊 #MentalHealth #Thoughtsofastrokesurvivor #Friends #curiosity

Demons come in many forms, be it through the dark whispers in the night or the looming heaviness in the air in broad daylight. In other cases, it could be the voice of a lost loved one coaxing you. I've always been one to brush alongside the "dangers" in life. When you're so use to being abandoned, scorned, shunned and put "out of sight, out of mind", finding that Haven is hard. My Haven used to be in books, carried away on elaborate journeys, character defining moments and in a lot of cases, battles of wits and visualising the entireties until that too was breached and destroyed.

As time passes on, the languid touch of "just let go" became more and more appealing. It seemed like nothing was working, there wasn't anyone I trusted enough and due to being sent away to boarding school, making connections was more or less non-existent. Until I was 15, that concept hadn't changed in fact, things just got a whole lot worse. My biological mother wanted nothing to do with me, because I "stole" her "youth" and was adamant that I wanted to "rob' her of 'the love of her life". My older brother was removed from my life at an early age because our biological father used him as a punching bag.

How is it possible to put your faith, unconditional trust and loyalty in people when the ones who we're meant to protect you from harm are the very instigators that create more and more damaging and life-changing habits. Physical abuse fades after time... but emotional, mental and psychological abuse? It's a never ending nightmare
