@omtl So, normally a post like this would be for a special occasion. But I don’t really have one. Just the past few days my thoughts have been getting out of hand a bit, I realized how much I’ve wanted to say this. So here I go, I guess.
I’ve been on the forum for about 9 months. It’s been a long 9 months full of many ups and downs. But all in all, I think this place has changed me for the better. I’m more confident now in myself and who I am, and I have a central thing in my life that I know I can come back to when I need it. This place, this community, has given me so much, so many things that I’ll never forget.
So this is a thank you. Thank you to every single person who’s talked to me when I was lonely, or sad, or just needed a friend. Thank you to everyone who helped me along the way, who helped me to be where I am now. I’m in a much better place men.taly, and I know it wouldn’t have been possible without all of the amazing people I’ve met on here.
This place has been that one rock I can grasp onto when the rest of my life has been completely unpredictable. It’s given me people I could talk to and friends I could count on when I couldn’t say the same thing about the rest of my life.
And now that I’ve come out the other side of the part of my life I was in when I joined, I can say how thankful I am for everyone on here. You’re all amazing, wonderful people. And I know that it’s going to be a long time before you guys see me go.
