I’m constantly amazed by the many ways people can connect and learn from each other, in our age of the internet. I’ve just spent a little time looking over SupportGroups.com.
You’ll find an amazing array of categories of subjects that affect millions of lives. Here are just a few:
- Brain Injury
- Military Family
I’ve been in and out of support groups for many years. I can see the value of being in the physical presence of others who are sharing similar life issues. But I also like the fact that as an online user of support groups, there’s a certain anonymity that adds a feeling of safety to share things that one may not have the courage to discuss in person. Today there is no reason to suffer in silence.
For me, an added bonus of being in a physically present support group was that I met my current husband through a man I’d met in my long-term group. You just never know what possibilities may be presented in a support group!
Plus another added benefit of being in a group, is being able to help someone else. You never know what a profound effect you may have on another person’s life and that can be extremely gratifying.
So check out SupportGroups.com: http://www.supportgroups.com
You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr.
