Re: INFOBUS September 27th 2018: Getting to know the ReachOut Online Community Team with Amirah

@annabethxchase Yes, I was. I still face them now, 10 years later! Lol Back then I handled things quite differently. I didn't have the best communication skills and internalised a lot of things. Now, I just try to communicate things as clearly as possible and also have the confidence to realise when it's time to part and go seperate ways. 

 

What strategies do you use/have you used?

Re: INFOBUS September 27th 2018: Getting to know the ReachOut Online Community Team with Amirah

That's great that you were able to learn how to deal with things @Amirah-RO ! It sounds like your experiences also added to your empathy, would you say so too?

Re: INFOBUS September 27th 2018: Getting to know the ReachOut Online Community Team with Amirah

@litgym and @annabethxchase so great to see you are both interested in volunteering! That's how I started in mental health and it was so fulfilling. All of the amazing support that you both offer others on the forums is also a form of volunteering, and one that makes such a big impact in the lives of others! It is also that generosity and compassion that supports our community to thrive- every person here is a part of that too!

Aw that's a shame @Amirah-RO but it's great that you stood up for yourself!

 

I tried to be really nice to these girls who were being mean but kinda gave up after 8 months and then just payed no attention tot hem and didn't let them see that they bullied me and eventually completely stopped caring what they said/how they acted!

i have a question, do you have the exact same job as Jess and Gina or is yours slightly different ? I’ve read somewhere your job is a bit different to Jess’s and Gina’s.
