NEW BEGINNINGS SINGLES SUPPORT GROUP-NORWELL
February 15, 2013

I am a man who showed up at New Beginnings 9 months after my marriage died, thinking I should be getting over it, and failing miserably. Friends and family tried, but they had no idea what I was going through and advice like "get over it" and "get back up on the horse" was less than useful. I found a building that was filled every Monday night with people who "get it" because they are at various stages of getting through (not 'over') it. I've been saying "New Beginnings saved my life" for years, with only a little exaggeration. Listening to others and hearing yourself describe what you are going through to supportive people (no therapists, NB is ONLY people experiencing a loss of a relationship) got me through the dark tunnel and out into the light. Now I am "better than I have ever been". So I've been giving back, as an officer, a group facilitator, and still today as a volunteer. I will support NB for the rest of my life because I believe in it.
