I believe most of us come here to find comfort and community.  Like any community, there are those that you just love to be around and others that really get to you.

I still love coming here and I still consider all of you as my family.

Oh and I forgot to mention,
To socialize

So o.o... Community is important i agree!

I came to Susan's Place because the other Trans community I am in is very inactive. This place seems kinda inactive too as a lot of sections on this site are ghost towns, but that is just my opinion.

Originally, I was just alone, doing research and my research kept leading me here to Susans.  I had so much inside I wanted to share, but no one to share with, and I wanted to be a part of others lives as well.  I had no idea what kind of person I would become after I began transitioning, but I do like her a lot now.

It reminds me when I first fired-up Final Fantasy 11, thinking I would be a loner SMN(Summoner) and role-playing my whole sad backstory. But everything changed when I could reach people with my words and they could reach me, without needing to have my face get in the way of things. A very similar reaction happened here, too, and I am so grateful for this site and everyone in the community. People here are so beautiful, cool, helpful, and knowledgable and even funny!

I feel like, if I can learn from someone or I can help someone, then I will always be here. 
Looking to make and keep friends! Spreading the love, now that I can truly love myself!

Hi, everyone! Newbie here. I joined Susan's due to 3 important reasons:

  • To socialize
  • To gain knowledge
  • To become part of the online community

I know that as time goes by, those list of reasons would increase. :)
Cheers!

I had just came out to my long time VA counselor and was looking for support groups and information. To see what others have gone through.

The challenges we encounter, when expressed and shared, can help unite us. That's why I originally asked the question.  I was looking for hope.

Ours is a unique path. And within the path we each take, no two are alike. Our uniqueness can free us or paralyze us. 
When you judge others, you do not define them, you define yourself.
