edited June 2021 in Introduce Yourself
hello, i'm holly :) - a socially anxious introvert just hoping to get some motivation to keep on going with everything and some help to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

i'm very nervous but also excited to join this community and hopefully get some answers and share experiences with others.
i'm looking forward to having people to talk to and relate to, as my social anxiety means i find it really hard to speak to people in real life. so having this safe space where i am hidden behind a screen is really beneficial for me to be able to feel less isolated and more confident in working through this (although i have redrafted this intro about ten times aha)

anyways that's me <3

    Hey Holly. It is easier online!
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
