support for newby posts with few responses please

heartbroken_kk posted 3/15/2019 13:26 PM

I'm posting this as a request to old timers, medium timers, and newbies alike. Sometimes we get a thread or two on this forum that seem to take on lives of their own, and become a bit, shall I say, captivating? This allows some of us to become very engaged with the member's story.

Nothing wrong with that.

But, there are others here hurting. If you only have a little time to spend each day at SI, please consider stopping in on some of the newby threads that have only a few posts, and offering a comment of support for that member.

Spread the love around. So many hurting hearts. Not everyone is able to type out their story in an engaging way. People are shy, or just tongue tied, but they've taken the step of creating a new topic and posting. Please help where you can.

Sending hugs all around ((SI newbies))

I agree completely. Try bringing up infidelity or child sexual abuse on Facebook. It was just crickets. It is difficult to get society to discuss these important issues.

Thank you for writing this! As a new comer here, I desperately want to hear from those who have been through similar situations. Itís so hard to share with friends do and family who donít understand the emotions.

I think one of the reasons some posters get tons of suggestions is because there is belief that there is a solution. Some suggest R and others suggest D. In some cases the bs has so much to deal with that helpful posters donít know how to help. No one wants to feel as if their sadness is being overlooked. I try to read every newcomer but sometimes I have no idea what to write. I guess we should at least acknowledge by a simple ďSorry you are here. Welcome. Read The Healing LibraryĒ.

I will try to post more in here as well (since sadly I'm an old timer on in the fact that I was a lurker for over a year)...but in here a month seems like a lifetime anyway. In that respect, I'm ancient.
