I have been thinking lately about what it means to be a leader (manager, moderator, fill in the blank), and, like I described in my post yesterday, I think it requires getting out of the way as often as you can, so to let all the stories, skills, talents, experiences of other people shine through.
At Group Beyond Blue, member Melzoom started a thread called “Your Story,” which you can get to by clicking here. I was very inspired by so many of them, and wanted to publish them here so that you all have a chance to hear different voices speak. In fact, I’m going to use this whole week to reproduce wisdom and words from my readers. Because I believe that your stories are what makes Beyond Blue a supportive place for folks with depression to land.
