Satisfaction In Advocacy

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I talked to an LJ friend on the phone for a while recently about issues she had with a therapist, and it was a rewarding experience.

Of course I love helping my friends, but I think I appreciated both that it was about a topic I understood but also that I was actually able to discuss things as an advocate. I spent so much of my life being bullied and taken advantage of that helping someone else in a similar situation made me feel useful on a level I haven’t really felt since I stopped being a priestess for my pagan group many years ago.

I love community. I love feeling needed and actually having a positive impact on other people’s lives. I have some limited expertise and experience that could be useful to certain people in certain situations. Like helping a friend being spiritually or astrally attacked– I actually have some idea on that type of thing! And I HATE bullies, whether they are egotistical therapists or demonic pests! I feel strongest when I am helping another person be stronger.

Unfortunately, being a non-driver in this society severely limits my reach. I have an online presence, but that’s pretty modest thus far, though I’m trying to put myself out there. And my chronic illness limits my energy.

However, I partnered with Cat to create Heron Hold and a way of living that makes both of us much less vulnerable to the inevitable slings and arrows this crazy world hurls our way. And I’m hoping to find another person or two to someday join us and make this it’s own sort of family.

In the meantime, I realize again that I’m at my best working for others in some areas, and if I find an opportunity to put myself out there to help, I shall jump in and do what I can as best I can.
