Due to a few recent developments, I thought it necessary to clarify a few things to our readers.
This is a site for you to share stories of your past. Or share stories inspired by your past. We are here for you to connect with others who can understand how you feel.
We are not:
The police. The people sharing on here are sharing as part of a healing process, not to press charges.
Fact checkers. Most people sharing here use writing to heal from past wounds. It is not up to us to make sure everything shared is also true. Part of the healing process for survivors is working out the details of what really happened, and writing is part of that process.
Obligated to allow negative comments. If the idea of survivors sharing emotions and stories you disagree with doesn’t sit well with you, then this site isn’t for you. The people here are healing from controlling, manipulative people who continually stripped away their self-worth. If you feel the need to do the same by ridiculing the stories here, we retain the right to block you.
Your right to free speech does not mean we have to allow insults. This is a community for survivors to connect with each other. Feel free to debate whether that’s a valid need somewhere else.
