The Covenant of the Welcome to Oz Online Support Community for Family Members with a BPD/NPD Loved One
"The places in which we are seen and heard are holy places. They remind us of our value of human beings. They give us the strength to go on. Eventually, they may even help us to transform our pain into wisdom."
- Rachel Naomi Remen
A Covenant is a promise that we, the members of the Welcome To Oz (WTO) online support community, make to each other to keep our community and its “neighborhoods” (different groups) a safe place where all feel welcome. For more specific information, please see our guidelines.
We are a diverse community of people who share a common bond—we are struggling with the confusion, stress, and pain of having a family member with narcissistic or borderline personality disorder.
Our community is a place where questions and doubts can be raised in an environment of acceptance and trust. We are each given the opportunity and gift to learn more about ourselves, validate one another, and be reminded that we are not alone in our struggle.
Whether we are old-timers or new members, we are here to help each other laugh when we’re feeling down and cry when something hits home. The support we will get here, sometimes even more than anything else, helps us change our life for the better.
We strive for compassionate, non-judgmental listening, courtesy, and respect for one another as we share our feelings, experiences, and ideas. To this end, we promise to one another to keep our sharing confidential, to understand we’re all at different places in our lives, and to work through disagreements in good faith with the help of the WTO Online Community Manager Lisa R. if needed (Lisa@BPDCentral.com).
This is our Covenant.
