About Us

Because you should know where it all began.

Dear Reader,

The Wall and Us began at a time when I was desperately looking for a solution for my alcoholism. I was on medication and I was using my medication to escape reality and not face the things that were bothering me head on.

It was a really lonely and desolate time in my short existence of 21 years. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t really lonely. I had a lot of people who cared about me and my well-being. But it just wasn’t enough. It just wasn’t helping.

After an attempted overdose I went back home. I decided I was going to miss a semester and figure things out once and for all. When I was about one and a half months into my three month sobriety streak I started a blog.

My aim was to find another me who could maybe understand what I was going through. You see I always believed that if I could find another me I know I’ll be okay. No one can know what a person is going through unless they’ve been in their shoes.

Now as I started blogging and receiving and reading other people’s contributions and stories things started becoming clearer. Everyone goes through ‘stuff’ in their lives. And despite being more connected than ever loneliness was an epidemic.

And there was a need for a solution.

Hence, this e-community.

I’ve been asked countless times what exactly are you trying to accomplish and I’ve probably given countless different and varied answers. So here is one if you’re reading this.

Our aim is to create a self-sustaining community that understands and listens. People seem to have forgotten how to listen. And since no one really wants to, we’ve all been forced to create these walls around us. Walls that help us hide who we are essentially making us forget what is it that makes us so special. Hence, The Wall and Us.

What can you do here?

Here, you can share your stories, experiences, feelings, grief, happiness and find someone who’ll listen without any inhibitions. You can talk to other human beings who’ll be your friend. I’ve been to 6 mental health experts myself. And I know all I’ve ever needed was a friend. And if you do too you’re at the right place.

You can -

1) Share your story anonymously (using an avatar) and help us reach someone out there who has gone through the same or is going through the same.

Just click on "Share Your Story" to add your piece.

2) You can start a thread anonymously in The Safe Haven if something is going through your head right now and we will ask the community to reach out and offer you insight and advice.

3) You can talk to a friend (not a therapist) who'll listen to you without any inhibition or judgment in real time.

Just click on the chat button at the bottom of your screen and say hey.

The Idea 

The idea is to help people embrace vulnerability. The idea is to give you a tiny corner on the internet where you can be yourself and be appreciated for it.

The idea is to give you a friend when you don't have any real ones around you.

The idea is to let you know that you're not alone. You're never alone.

Not when you're here, with you.

Stay strong, friend. We're with you. Always.
