Face-to-Face Support vs Online Support

Recently released is a report about how face to face support groups are better than social media support groups Read Report. The report brings to light some great points that we currently face as a society and can be solved using www.SurvivingMyLife.com.

The report states one reason why face to face support groups had greater success than online support groups is because they were less likely to be dishonest. One major thing that SurvivingMyLife offers is a safe place to be open and honest. We let users be anonymous, similar to anonymous face to face support groups and allow them to be comfortable sharing personal information without being tied publicly to other social media outlets they use.

SurvivingMyLife lets members create their own support group that would be more custom to their needs such as; specific age range, specific medical diagnosis and if you have a loved one going through a situation that you are indirectly affected. We take this approach because we understand that everyone deals with challenges in different ways and to get the best support system is to customize the support to the specific member.

Time will tell which is the most effective, but with the growing social media epidemic the biggest challenge to overcome is how to effectively improve success in our current and future culture. SurvivingMyLife is very excited to be a part of the growing success with support groups and community building helping the mental and medical care system.

Marilyn Mosby Sparks A Fire We Need

Whether you agree or disagree with Marilyn Mosby, the State’s Attorney who charged six officers in the death of the 25 year-old who died from spinal cord injuries while in police custody, she is one person who is taking a stand for something she believes in: Justice.

She faces America with a decision she made that put people on both sides of the controversy. She is young and has other characteristics that some would view as challenging in her line of work and yet she takes it in stride. She took what the protesters were saying, “No justice, no peace” and turned it around to find justice to launch investigations to charge culprits appropriately. She is a leader that is calling upon others to take action and help fix the major issues.

Think of what we can do when more than one person takes a stand. One person can spark the fire for many to join and take action, to fix the issues in our community, our city, our state and our nation. We need to combine forces and help each other. We need to build up our community with support. We can all be leaders we just need to take a stand.

Support Groups At Your Finger Tips

The simplest way I have heard people describe SurvivingMyLife is that we are like Facebook for support groups. Every time I hear this it makes me smile because in a way thats true, but there is so much more to SurvivingMyLife.

It all began with one tragic moment. The experience of a traumatic event was enough to start the idea of online support groups. Think about this, when someone goes through a life changing event, we can feel alone even though others tell us we are not, we can still have that feeling. What if, while feeling alone, you can go online to one website, www.SurvivingMyLife.com, and look up anyone, a support group or just information that is similar to the life changing event? Would that person still feel like they are alone?

We understand that life changing events happen everyday to different people. We also understand that people may not want to go online to talk about their feelings, but for the people that do we are here to help. We are bringing support groups to your finger tips. We want to allow people to find information they need, communicate with people safely about common challenges they’ve faced or are still facing and make it easy for people to find a support group without the challenges.

SurvivingMyLife is about helping each other get through the next day.
