Imagine quietly struggling with something painful, not knowing what to do. Then imagine that the person next to you is battling the same kind of pain, and neither of you had a clue. Now imagine if you had each other to talk through it. This is what this project exemplifies. Being able to help one another persevere through the experiences we face that bring us down. Because while each of our journeys are unique, the pain we endure is more similar than we can imagine. Our goal is to get all of us talking, so that no one ever feels alone again. Imagine that.
We encourage you to contribute to – or even start – a conversation with others; to share your story here in an effort to help others feel related to, and, conversely, to gain the support you may be longing for. If even just one person could be reminded that they are not alone in this world, we’d consider this a success.
We understand that telling your story may be hard, especially in a public forum. If you’re someone who would like to share your story, but remain private, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post your story through our ‘For The Hayters’ profile, so that you may share with full anonymity. You know your story matters; We know so, too.
