Just read this on Tumblr and it reminded me of why we have peer support and why it helps a lot of people through tough times. Our first peer support group was telling enough–there were enough smiles and crying and hands in the air to fill your heart for decades.
A woman falls down a hole
And the walls are so steep she can’t get out.
A doctor walks past and she shouts for help. The doctor writes a prescription and tosses it down the hole.
A priest walks past and she shouts for help again. The priest writes a prayer and tosses it down the hole.
Then a friend walks past, and again she shouts for help, and the friend jumps in with her.
“What did you do that for?” the woman asks. “Now we’re both stuck.”
The friend shook their head. “I’ve been here before. And I know the way out.”
Don’t hesitate to come out and talk with us–it’s an experience all on its own, and you won’t regret it. We are all friends here, and we’re all here for each other. ❤
