hi,

this is only a suggestion- it is by no means a criticism. No offence meant.

but can we have some kind of happy section where people are only allowed to post positive things? its just that i would say i was quite far along with my healing but i find some of the message titles (and messages) so negative and depressing. its not that i am saying people should be happy, nor am i denying the reality of the rape aftermath. i'm just saying that being positive and trying to be positive got me out of my dark hole and i think it might help others. I hope this doesn't sound lame, but it might be nice for people on the board to have a refuge on the board which is truly positive, and I would welcome a section which is slightly 'puppies, hugs and flowers' orientated. I often find myself avoiding the board because of the (understandable) negativity and i would like to not have to do that.

The 'real life' or 'reclaiming our lives' section don't really accomodate this because people still discuss the bad things in their lives (of course they do, that is why they come to the board)- but perhaps if people are encouraged to find the positive (because no matter at what stage you are in your healing i do believe there are some positives somewhere).

What do you think?

sorry-should have been more precise. i meant a positive things about healing section. i don't feel the fun section covers that although sometimes people do post positive healing things.
