For years I was left in a constant state of anxiety and frustration at my difficulty in connecting with others...
Chronic illness can make people feel alone, but online communities let us know, somebody cares.
After only a short period of time, I soon realized I wasn’t all that different in this world.
I don't necessarily think that my story is as exciting or optimistic as others but I do want to tell my story if it gets out there...
The act of correspondence where you share a bit about yourself can make you feel a smidge vulnerable at first, but if you give it some time, it will pay off.
I'm no longer afraid of being rejected by people because I know there will always be someone who will accept me for who I am, no matter how bad my flaws and imperfections might be.
For the majority of my life, I felt isolated. I felt estranged from my peers at school and I even felt estranged from my family.
They listen to me vent, they reassure me and I know that eventually everything will be okay.

Unlike my brief message, M wrote a long piece of letter, telling me about everything about her hometown, feeling curious about the island I’m from...

The reason why I love Slowly is because it has caused me to read and listen. To listen to what others have to say despite our differences.
I felt incredibly lonely, and that's when Slowly stepped in.
To conclude, Slowly is a lifesaver. I don't know where my mental health would be without it.
