Hi everyone, This section of the forum is a little different to the others, as you may have noticed in looking around the threads. Elsewhere on the forums, we discuss some pretty heavy topics: mental health issues, thoughts of suicide, trauma, abuse, relationship breakdowns. Here is the place to come to get away from that and have a bit of fun. Distraction can be an important tool to draw on if you're finding yourself overwhelmed by distressing thoughts and feelings. As this is a section for respite from difficult topics, we will remove posts made in this section that attempt to discuss personal issues. Please use a support thread in the appropriate section for these discussions. Happy posting!

Hi! I want to just hear some wholesome stuff. Your person can be your partner or friend or family member. Just tell me the wonderful things they do that make you feel warm and fuzzy 🥰 my beautiful boyfriend is my favourite person in the world. We have had to do long distance for 5 months because of Covid and have now been reunited and we’ve been spending as much time together as we can. Here are a few of my favourite things he does: 1. He has recently learned how to untangle knots in my hair. He’s super gentle with it and I just feel so cared for and loved when he does 2. My boyfriend is shorter than me by about 5cm so sometimes I struggle to feel really feminine...it’s silly and I know I shouldn’t let social expectations affect me like this but they do on occasion. But he knows this and so finds every moment to tell me how beautiful he finds me and how he loves every part of me including, and especially, how tall I am 🥰 3. I love when we are alone and dance together. He doesn’t like dancing very much but if it’s just us two we forget everything else and just dance like crazies haha 4. He knows exactly how to make me feel better when I’m feeling anxious or overwhelmed. He knows what to say and what to do and he is there every time with his arms around me, grounding me. tell me about your person

Hi Everyone, Im from Victoria and as you know we are going through forced lockdown. Im currently not working and am forced to stay home due to lockdown restrictions. I was wondering if there's any emergency accommodations available for people without somewhere to live? Im in an abusive relationship and my partner keeps telling me to leave and move out. When my partner is upset she abuses me verbally in personal and via text. I've tried counselling over the past few years but unfortunately my partner doesn't stay for more than a couple of sessions and its always their fault or mine. I can't cope with her abuse any more. Is there somewhere to contact who might give me somewhere to live during lockdown? Thanks in advance, xx

Is it sad or is it true???? i wanna discuss reality and truths and if im just angry and bitter or if most people feel the same.. The people suffering here the people with mental health problems are the ---- good people in the world the honest caring people that spend their lives looking after everyone else the people that try the hardest and care the most. Where the people that are fine are the people that dont care at all, the people that dont bother working and still get paid more than most , people that dont try and still manage to come out ahead of everyone . I know there is a million different people with a million different circumstances and beliefs but i personally have observed the better person you are the worse your life .

My earliest memory I was only two or four years old. Such a happy little boy I was. Riding on the back seat of my fathers bike. He picked a flower and handed it to me to hold onto. I looked it and smelt it. Nature is beautiful. We ride upto a pretty young girl. Hand her the flower Jake, he said. But it was too late, I had already thrown it under the wheel to watch it be destroyed on the ride there. I was not like him, I was the spawn of satan. What is your earliest memory? Do you feel it shaped your character in some way? All stories welcome
