I'm not asking for "positive strokes" or "warm fuzzies". I suppose I have assumed that I was posting and sharing appropriately. Now, after a year of Babble, I'm not so sure.
My total "dog 'n' pony" show is based on my experience getting well several years ago. I maintain that wellness is out there because I found it. If I can do it anyone can. I am sad, however, when I remember how long and hard the process was. How full of twists and turns and dead-ends it was. I ask, "why did it take me so d*mn long?"
It doesn't have to take long, it just did. This encourages me to fine tune the language of wellness, to make it more understandable. With the right language I can coach and encourage others to take a few simple steps to find themselves embracing wellness, and much sooner than I did.
Is Babble a good forum to slate wellness? Or, should I go away with such a message? I must warn all that I have found freedom and happiness. I have found (social) emancipation from my childhood tendancies, allowing me to pursue goodness, truth, and beauty without intimidation and coercion. There is much more. I'm not certain I'm in the right place saying the right things.
Any and all input is graciously welcome.
