PRAISE FOR GET REAL
Before Get Real I was self harming and hating life. I now have the realisation that I am better than that. I’m not just my body, I am not my thoughts. I have Tam to thank, she does everything gracefully and with love.
I’m so glad I came to the Get Real camp. I learned how to deal with my emotions really well. It was very fun, thank-you.
I loved Get Real! It was a great experience for me and it helped me a lot with stress and fears. Get Real was a great change in my life. It was really fun, and a weekend to remember.
What I got out of Get Real was to let your emotions be free. Don’t bottle them up because you will slowly crumble from the pressure. Let them be free, trust me you will feel a lot better.
My mum really wanted me to go to Leadership Camp and she thought it would be good for me. I wasn’t convinced, I was so scared to meet new people. I went anyway thinking it would be really bad, but I’m so happy I did decide to go because I met some amazing people. It’s nothing like school at all, they are all really nice.
Get Real has been a blessing for me. It has been an experience that has enlightened me about emotions, thoughts and actions. I am now a better person and I am ready to face the world with any challenge because I know that I will be able to face it. All because of Tam, Sarah, Brett, Dex and Angel. It has been a gift for me and an experience that I will keep in my heart.
My experience here has been great! I have really enjoyed it. It’s something new and I’m definitely coming back!! ☺ My process was my first and it was really intense. It covered something I thought wasn’t an issue anymore… but it obviously was. I’ve realised a lot about myself. There was a lot of self pity and self judgement and negativity towards myself and the way I think about myself it was SO surreal! I am truly inspired and will most definitely continue on forever and ever and ever! For sure!
The Get Real experience has been an awesome, even though it was my first time I still felt like I fit in with all the other participants. For all those struggling with emotional dilemmas I highly recommend attending.
Coming to Get Real has changed my life. The first time I came to these camps I was a troubled child and learning these tools has helped me change the way I see things and act. It has helped me stand up for who I am. It is because of Tam and Get Real that I am like I am today…. It wasn’t them that changed me, but it allowed me to change myself.
Originally I was sceptical about how Get Real would effect me. But after attending the weekend I met some amazing people who I hope will remain my life-long friends. I feel the weekend has given me an excellent feeling of self-worth and increased self-esteem, as I had to cope with issues and environments significantly outside the boundaries of my comfort zone. Thank you so much for this amazing experience which I will carry with me for my whole life!
