When I first came to the country, I was alone, miserable, because I missed my family and friends and was on an emotional roller coaster. I really wished there was someone I could just talk to my heart's content and discuss my personal troubles, secrets, desires or even the minutia of life. Someone that doesn't know me personally or is in the existing friend circle. Like a (free) shrink just to pour your heart to and the information is safe with them. This group is NOT for getting together for movies, parties or dinners. This is for those who just want someone to talk to. Marriage trouble? Kid is an ungrateful (insert expletive)? Work is a nightmare? Think of this as the most non-judgemental space where we are on your side. We will not question you or the path you've chosen, give our opinion only when asked and simply just be a confidant. YOUR confidant. Someone that is on your team. Bring on the tears, the heartbreak, the anger et al.
