I AM LISTENING
Creating a space where you can be free to embrace who you really are and receive support from people that truly care
No one is on an island alone. Somedays, when you wake up It may feel that way but it’s simply not true. We all have demons that we are battling and some battles are more intense than others. I am listening was created out of a need for people to be heard. Have you ever sat down to have coffee with someone that asks “how are you” and you know damn well that they aren’t listening when you answer?
I am listening started as a blog site with five friends. It is a secure conversational space dedicated to giving an outlet to thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Things can be shared here that no one may accidentally find, read, or place judgement upon once put down. Our goal is to provide everyone with a non-judgmental outlet, and a space to go to find resources for a multitude of different needs. We are a family. We are brothers and sisters in this life. We are love. We are one and the way forward every day is together. We are hear to listen.

Why we are different
Our vision with this site is to create a space where we can be real. Completely real and true without judgment or bias. Where we talk about real life things and get things off of our minds that might be clouding our judgment and lives. We want to be an outlet where we can share the good, and the bad, in an environment with a heart. If you want a therapist, this is not the place for you, but if you want someone to listen, we are. We hope that you will join our private group where we can grow and learn and talk to one another. Please remember, this is a judgment-free zone. We will be watching, and remember let’s keep it positive and uplifting. We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you!!

For the last month, that’s what I have been doing. Meeting new people. Listening. Forming bonds. I have said it before but I will say it again. I am here, and I am listening. I may not have answers, or be a “therapist” but if you need an ear I am here. I am finding […]
A new week. New acquaintances made. New experiences had. New memories made. New additions to my fur-family. It was a busy week and I am planning a get away for next weekend. All in all, it’s been peaceful. No explosions of anger this weekend so that helped a great deal. I didn’t have to hide […]
It’s been a minute since my last post. I couldn’t seem to find the words to put down. So I have been doing a lot of sitting alone with the thoughts. I’ve been hiding. I admit it. I’ve been with my head in the sand again. Trying to not deal with the reality of my […]
I opted out of the EMDR this week because there was simply too much going on and I know how it drains me. I had a complete cleaning of the house, and a ton of food to prep for dad to have his army buddies over for their poker game. It’s really good for him […]
I’m finding it hard to write about these two sessions as they focused on my auto responses in my living situation. I’ve put it off due to the self analysis that it has created. I again have realized how preprogrammed I have become to accepting whatever is asked of me, told to me to do, […]
My session on this past Friday was equally as exhausting as the first. I am becoming more vocal. Less meek in my interactions with my father and those around me. I have a voice. I don’t have to just lie down and accept verbal harassment and (calling it what it is) abuse. I can tell […]
I’ve decided to record my EMDR therapy sessions here. David (my therapist) says I have to box all of these memories up at the end of a session and “put them away” until next time, but I guess he hasn’t figured out yet that I am dweller. I will dwell on these thoughts and feelings […]
