“If you see a friend without a smile, give him one of yours”, This proverb is the simple philosophy of introducing the ShareAFeeling platform. ShareAFeeling is the online dais for those lonely people out there who have several questions and feelings bustling inside them to which they seek an answer or rather an ear to hear out.
A perfect place to truly vent yourself, communicate with people around the world, and find solutions to your problems. A social diary or on an online blog where there are no limitations or rules or regulations; simply write what you feel.
This platform allows users to register anonymously, hence they can hide their identity and don’t have to feel ashamed to express their problems. There are times in life when we have so much to tell but cannot to those who know us. Either because they won’t understand, or they may judge you incorrectly, bully you, make fun of you, take advantage of your situation, or simply because you do not have a confidante friend.
At ShareAFeeling you can share whatever that is troubling you without being judged for your situation and circumstance; without being visible to the world around you. This website helps users to get motivated by talking with people who being a stranger will have a new perspective and help find a solution to their problems.
This is a platform where a “friend helps a friend” from anywhere across the world by answering their emotional mindset. This is also a platform for people who have acquired experience of dealing with life’s tough situations and complications to be compassionate and help other friends in dealing, understanding, and managing their distresses.
When several experienced humanities help a buddy in distress, they are truly bound to make a difference in their lives. Together as a community of compassionate humans we can hold hands with troubled friends with words of wisdom and give them the emotional strength to get back positively with life.
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
– Walter Winchell
From the founder –
“Going through depression is a bad thing, but unable to talk about it is even worse. The same is my story. Judgmental society and the absence of caring people around has been a major cause that I was not able to speak my thoughts or feelings. Having friends and family does not always help. I could not join online social groups because everyone in my circle would come to know about my issues. The idea of concealing my identity gave me the courage to talk about those unsaid feelings and somehow it was even easier to share them with strangers. Slowly, I figured out I am not the only one going through this. There are many across the globe in the same boat as me. And then I started thinking about what can be done to help these people and hence came up with an idea of creating a platform where users can discuss their feelings online without making a social presence.” – Ankit Arte
