I have just listened to Mathew  ‘s interview with  today.  They were talking about the shame of our own acting out behaviours that include things we just don’t want to speak out loud.  Goodness knows they are brave to talk about themselves and what happened to them but so many people just don’t want to go public.

It was suggested that survivors (ie people not dead or too drunk to function) could write, with paper, anonymously to an organisation that would understand.  Of course that would mean there would be no way for that organisation to reply to you – so I thought if you state this wordpress blog  as an answering address…  Well, you could really and truly remain anonymous.

What do you think?

    Hi

    I personally think being able to write to someone anonymously is a great idea. There maybe some people who have never talked about their experiences through fear shame or whatever & are therefore alone with their experiences and their feelings. To share those experiences and feelings with another human being & to receive a response can be healing in itself. The person may feel less alone for maybe the first time ever. They may realise other people have had similar experiences and understand the way they are feeling. An anonymous exchange between two people could be the first step to moving forward in life & feeling better about themselves. At times I have emailed the Samaritans at my lowest points and eventhough I didn’t know the person replying I felt like I had company & somebody to be with me until I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Somebody was there even if virtually and for me this was a comfort. I knew they were listening and I knew I could hide behind a screen so they never knew me. To hide allowed me to feel safe. I hope others will follow the advice given and seek help even if anonymously. Every person needs someone to stand by them at times even if virtually.
