Helped me open up and tell others what I was thinking

This is my second time participating in this, and it doesn't get easier. It was hard to open up to people that I didn't know, but it was a great experience. It was hard to see people cry, even if I didn't know them, and especially difficult to see the amount that go through similar things that I go through as well. I don't like to cry in front of others and I found that because of that I tried to keep my feelings to myself. Getting to know the other members of my group helped me open up and tell others what I was thinking. Thank you for coming here and helping me see that I'm not alone when facing problems. The crying was pretty harsh though! (original message)
