So glad you posted it

I believe that each story posted, even if they all sound about the same, does help since we need to really show how common this is. And how it should not be.

It is sad it happens but together we will find a way to stop it from happening! I think this place is a good place for any woman to start since we all have either been there ourselves or felt something like it. This place will help those woman change from feeling depressed and hopeless to a more positive view inside herself and that is the first step needed to create the real change we want.
