It’s true – Everyone needs a lifeline from time to time.

Where I Stand created a program to make sure that anyone and everyone struggling with a mental illness or substance abuse can have the opportunity to receive mail filled with encouragement, hope and love. We’re excited to introduce to you our Lifeline Team. The Lifeline Team is a group of individuals who provide time, energy, resources, love (and stamps!) to send hope and encouragement to individuals who are struggling. They are mothers, and brothers, sisters, friends, lovers and teachers working daily to make an impact. If that isn’t hope; I don’t know what is.

“But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.”
Paulo Coelho

My favorite quote is from Fritz Lang’s silent classic ‘Metropolis’. It’s, “The mediator between the head and the hands must be the heart.”

Don’t look back you are not going that way…sometimes a certain kind of darkness is needed to see the stars…it’s time to start living the life you imagined

“In the midst of hate, I found there was in me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was within me, an invincible calm. I realized that throughout it all, that…In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” -Albert Camus

The best accessory a person can wear is a smile and confidence. Hold on because one day someone is going to hug you so tight that they fit all the broken pieces back together.

    Lizzie,
    I address this to you as you signed my card you guys were so kind to send. I experienced an immediate lift in spirits as I digested the facts, this card was handwritten, it was from people from the other side of the world, who cared, taken time out and spoke from their heart and experience’s, and whom I very unlikely to meet in my life.
    You know I have been one of those people, everyone’s else’s rock, and as life has progressed I finally hit the wall, the load had finally become too much.
    My burden come from congenital defects at birth,after marriage IVF programme’s we went through unsuccessfully to have children, yet we became respite and full time foster carers, the deaths of Mum and Dad, retrenchment from work and now those physical issues like a wheel alignment on your car the more miles I have traveled in life, the more the wear and tear are causing daily pain and very challenging physical demands to stay on top of, forever disrupting our lives, but I’m alive.
    I have constant fear of this pain which is the key to my anxiety and depression. I’m being treated, I’m challenging the physical side by trying to build strength which then can settle the mind.
    But again thank you and the team, beautiful work
    Ian
