We are New Beginnings Singles Support Group, a non-profit, non-sectarian self-help support organization located in Abington, Massachusetts. The focus of our self-help group is to provide a safe, supportive place for recently single, widowed, divorced, or newly separated adults who are in need of support in dealing with the day to day issues associated with their situation.
Through small group interaction, led by a facilitator, the members learn to begin the process of building a single life and eventually re-enter the social world in a safe environment.
We are non-sectarian and self-supporting. The meetings are topic driven group discussions, usually offered by one of the members in the group, with the intent of helping the newly single person see that this is a temporary setback, not a permanent way of life. We also offer planned events that give members a safe place to go to socialize.
Our interaction as individuals during refreshment time or at planned functions helps to build new friendships and social circles. Many of us have lived through similar situations and are proof that a new, happy life is possible.
If you or someone you know would benefit from our meetings and hospitality please come to a meeting on Monday evening or give us a call at 781-499-2659 or Email us at email@example.com for further information.
I suppose all of us have been hurt in deep and lasting ways by the words or acts of another. It’s normal in such situations to feel hostility toward the person who hurt us. If we allow the offense to linger, we may carry the hurt and resentment in the form of a grudge. Usually this causes more unhappiness for us than the person we’re mad at. Psychologists say the ability to forgive is closely correlated to happiness and mental health. The essence of forgiveness is a voluntary decision to abandon continuing resentment, to let go of anger and to move on. As we get older, the more forgiving we become! Hmmm, We get wiser, too. So maybe it’s wise to forgive!!
