TRIGGER - you shared and I thought I would too...(thank you for sharing)
I did the same, just last night...at the time it felt like a good idea, my breathing got deep, my heart rate went down...and then I watched as the color flowed...damn. temporary. now reminded by the dull pain as it heals...we heal? You aren't alone and we just need to try and stay strong for ourselves and each other...
easier said...just know that "you is kind, you is smart, you is important."View Thread
Phew...just wanted to say I finally made the call to try therapy. That feels good and I wanted to share with this group. You are so very dear to me and have been a tremendous help in more ways then I can express.
from the excellent advice, the shared stories, uplifting words and kindness to a sense of friendship. THANK YOU SHC!
Havent been here in awhile and coming across your thread...I finally made the call to try therapy. As I was talking with the screening counselor he asked many questions I have never answered for anyone before. I dont know how this relates for you, but for me, just that initial chat- bringing up things I have hid for so long tat I dont know what to do with them. Its confusing this cycle of talking about it to shove it back down. Are we supposed to forget? Or retrain our brains to see it differently? In the book im currently reading, they have a lil ceremony of lighting candles and such, everyone has an object the represents a pain for them and they take turns expressing how they see fit (anger mostly) and say good bye, and toss the object. Maybe a more aggressive type of approach like yelling? But then, is that also a temporary relief, or will my mind take it deeper...I am not sure...I am rambling. But no you are not alone- thanks for sharing...hugsView Thread

I have a friend who does photography- she works with a wedding photographer on occasion and that has helped her business move through families and friends. she also started by doing friends and families with added perks or dicounts i think, and it has grown steadily from that. she like the flexibility with her young daughter.
a website, business cards and brochures are always a must! leave you card everywhere and with people you meet! i do face painting on the side - mostly for fun- but you would be suprised by the calls I get and where they came from...sometimes i forget!
also, the old facebook helps too. people like quick and easy access to your work and your information. sending successful vibes your way!
