"The first thing you all need to understand..." explains the group leader. " that this--" He gestures around the modest room. "-- is a ... safe space."

He nods encouragingly, then continues, "Every one of you faces the same challenges, problems, disappointments, what have you. Here, we understand. To us, you can talk. We've all been there. We all know how it is. So no matter what your story, we get it. And none of us will ever, ever judge you."

He lets that sink in a moment. "Alright, then. Time to share. So let's hear from our first speaker."

He steps away from the podium as a Mirialan Jedi takes his place. The man looks out at the group and says, "My name is Liv..."

"Hi, Liv," say the group members in unison.

"...and I'm a PUG healer."

The Jedi Liv takes a deep breath and begins.
