Post of The Month

Jellyelephant is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Abi,

Please don't be sorry. Have you ever heard of the phrase "You can't pour from an empty cup"? I feel like this applies here. You need to look after yourself before you can start caring for other people. I know you know all about self care so I won't go on, but try and practise it a little, the way you encourage others to. It's great that you have other skills too, I know music is one of your passions in life and hopefully by studying it that can help you get to where you want to be. Take all the time you need, you don't have to support people in SC all of the time - chat is there to support you too when you are going through difficult times.

Take care of yourself

Jelly x"

  • Hello!

    Hello, my name is Emma and I am new to the mix.

    I am currently going through a very tough breakup that happened almost 3 weeks ago. We were living together and were due to get married in 2 months time until he called it off as he was not ready to get married and does not know what he wants anymore. I am feeling extremely low, cant stop crying and feel very lost. I just want to meet new people and see if anyone is going through the same thing i am at the moment and see if we can support each other.

    Welcome, Emma! Sounds like things are pretty rough at the moment. Feel free to get stuck in and post your own threads in the support forums if you like. It's good to have you here.

    I'm Mike, one of the moderators you'll see floating around.
    Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.
