My Christmas message


#1

I hope you have a peaceful day today, however Christmas isn’t the most wonderful time of the year for everyone. In fact, it can be the most exacerbating, isolating, and upsetting period for many people. You’re not alone and there is always someone you can talk to (hi?) who can try to help (hello, I’m here, IM or text me).

There’s even professional support available on Christmas Day & Boxing Day. Please copy this message to your feeds for anyone you know who might need it (and those whom you probably have no idea that they do).

Also I know we unofficially do this on the forums every year but it feels important to say that people will be dipping in all day, so if you are alone (or feel alone in a crowd) there will be kind-hearted, like-minded people here to #joinin too
