We talk a lot about support here on SP, but the fact is that while support is incredibly effective, we are individuals and when push comes to shove each individual discovers within his or her self that support is inside ourselves as well... and the input from others merely kindles the fires.

Support helps... yes! ... but we will not fall apart if support disappears.
Instead, we move onward stronger for the contact.
We are individuals. Interactions strengthen us. But we do not depend on support to remain standing once we are standing sturdily on our own. Sure, we may lean a little from time to tme, but that substance that grows inside us as we nurture our minds will stand the test of temptations.

I think that following the basic path set by SP empowers us to learn about ourselves in a way that lets us become ever-evolving; one goal leads to others...even after we reach what once was the 'ultimate goal'. And this is the substance of individuality.

Being unique.
Not 'getting thin like all my friends', but...
'being the person I am meant to be: the best I can be'.
An individual.
Ever-changing in newly arisen starting points and goals.
Dynamic stuff!

Use support as a tool.
Like any tool; use the right tool for each task.

    Support works the best when one takes action to promote positive changes for ourselves. Without the action? Support is a quick warm, fuzzy fix that quickly fades.

    Thanks Sam. I always used to want to be thin
like my skinny friends but now I am taking care
and doing my bit for me to be as healthy as I can
while getting support. As you say, it is up to us
to use the right tools. emoticon
