Having a befriender has made me feel like there are people out there who will help people in my situation.
I feel better about myself, have started to eat better, started to take a pride in my appearance again. I can stay in on my own, it doesn’t bother me so much now.
I still feel sometimes feel like I could do with someone to talk to. I have a friend down the road who asks me to help her out now and again. I feel good that I can help other people now.
I think befriending is a great idea for someone like me who lost parents they were close to. I’ve enjoyed the time out and if I could become a befriender and help someone else, I would.
