The Changes

Hey ROers,


Wow, a lot has changed since I first started using ReachOut to get help. I came from a very dark hole and when I came across ReachOut - I found my match and realised, I had to get help and that help helped me when I was hopeless.


Getting help was challenging, but I soon found out it was worth it at the end. After 6 years of being connected with ReachOut in some way - I am thankful for their help and support. A lot has changed in my time.


I now work side with NSW Police Force as a Vol.T and I work on crime prevention. I also work (unable to disclose my other job), but it's better than nothing. I have an amazing girl who is the bestfriend anyone can ever ask for and I love her dearly, who at the moment is going through a tough time, but I am supporting her through it.


I have lost contact with my parents and I don't speak to them well at all. I tried and tried and realised, I cannot change them, but I can change myself, but I am very happy. ReachOut has taught me constructive communications and they are really important.

I am happy with my life now and I do miss ReachOut a lot, but I have grown up now and I just turned 26. It's amazing how time flies by so fast.


I love the new ReachOut and it looks pretty swell.


Take care of yourselves and always remember to smile
