I haven't really made a topic in a long time, so this might be really odd.
I've actually been trying to get this message across for while now. I don't like making huge deals out of something, but it's actually been a huge deal lately. I've changed things about my posts, and hidden things inside them. If there is a post where I didn't seem myself, I usually hid a quote.
And the quotes were always about reading in between the lines.
Just like how you had to notice something was different to find my real message, you have to do that around the forum too. There are two groups of people around here. There are external processors, and internal processors. External processors feel comfort with people, and have no problem voicing their problems. However, there are also internal processors.
When an internal processor has a problem, telling someone isn't always their first idea. They like to keep things silent, and think a lot about their choices before actually doing them. They usually don't speak up, and try to deal with things on their own. But some internals actually want someone to notice. They want someone to notice that they aren't fine like they say. They drop small hints that actually scream “I'm not fine”.
The internal processors on this forum usually hide things in their posts, and if you look carefully you can find if something is wrong. Maybe one day a person who is usually active only posts once. And in that one post, there are no smiley emoticons. And maybe in that post is a little message. A call for help.
This person who hid the quote, they really need a person. A person who knows what's wrong, a person who can see if you're upset. A person who understands. A person who knows.
The internal, of someone asks if they’re ok, almost always says these words;
Do you know what this person truly wants? They want someone to look them in the eyes, and say tell me the truth.
My message is, read between the lines. Keep an eye out. Maybe you are the hero someone needs.
