SA can leave you feeling very alone. Try this the next time you feel alone.


1. Take 3 deep breathes

2. Imagine creating a support group around you

3. A close friend walks in, sits down beside you, squeezes your shoulder gently, and reassures you that he or she knows exactly what you are feeling.

4. Several more people appear like a support group to remind you that you are not alone. They have felt this lonely and isolated at times, but now you are in it together.

Remember your visual support group at the times you felt most abandoned. I have even listed the people in my visual support group. By creating a visual support group you are taking the steps to heal the wound of loneliness.

I love it - I do things like this sometimes also, and it can really help.

And I like that you call it visual instead of imaginary support group. Cause I always refer to things like that as imaginary, but that kind of makes it seem less real. But it can be pretty real to your subconscious and emotional mind, which is where half the trouble is.
