The great­est ben­e­fit was real­iz­ing that I am not alone, that every­one is going through some­thing equal­ly as painful or chal­leng­ing. Being there for oth­ers, to lis­ten to them, is a gift for your­self, not just for them. I am not alone in try­ing to learn and grow, and I am not alone in stum­bling along the way. I would rec­om­mend this group to any­one going through a chal­leng­ing time.
