I sometimes find it hard to talk, but so much easier when I go on our walk. We do our seaside walk each week, and everyone gets a chance to speak. So come along if you’re feeling down Don’t sit alone wearing a frown.
it was clear I had found somewhere I was free to be myself
Cheer up be positive, winter will cease and Spring will arrive. With a spring in our step, the sun will lift depression, and we all come together, and help each other, don’t be alone, friendships can solve the problems.
I used to feel lost and alone. Then I joined Maggie’s group and everyone there made me feel at home.
They are the nicest people in the world.
