To everyone at Teenhelp- Thank you! - October 17th 2018, 09:27 AM

Nine years ago I joined this site to get help with my depression and special needs.
Later on I volunteered as a live help operator, and though I wasn't cut out for the regular hours required, I felt a deep passion in my heart caring for others, just as others here have cared for me.
As a child I was raised thinking that lgbt+ people were wrong. This site showed me otherwise, and when I found myself to be bi, teenhelp was the only solace I had.

I haven't posted on the site in over four years now, and I leave my old account as a reminder of all that came before now.
But... I need to put this all down. For how important this place has been, and still is, for me. Thank you all.


I don't feel that anything has changed on here, despite my time away. I know the admins and moderators, even the majority I never met, still encourage love and compassion, just as they had nearly a decade ago. And please, keep it up. Not that I need to tell you all. You are all kind souls, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such wonderful and selfless people. Through this site, and through the dedicated members here, I can only imagine the impact it has had on others across the world, just as it has impacted me.

I wanted to write a poem, just as I always used to, but there's so much to say I simply couldn't contain it within such boundaries. Even still, words can not express how I feel about this site. Though I won't really be coming back, I just had to leave this here.

To the younger generation struggling to find themselves in the world, remember this: we've all been through trials as well. Never be ashamed of what you've been through or what you've done, even if you recall your every mistake. Learn from it, grow. I know someday you all will look back at the things you've done and laugh, and maybe cry. But you'll be proud at how far you've come. I know I have. Even if progress is slow, you'll make it though, I promise you.

And to everyone here, to every soul that has done even the smallest thing to help someone else, thank you. I wonder if you'll ever know just how much it means.

This was lovely and heartwarming to read!

I likely wasn't around much when you were an active member, but it's really good to know how much TeenHelp meant to you and how it helped you. People may come and go and things may change with time, but I hope that everyone gets to experience the safe and supportive TeenHelp community, just like you did.

It's good to be reminded of just how much of an affect we can have on others with kindness, compassion and an open heart!

I am so glad to hear that this site was very helpful for you, and showed you that you could be you. I was active four years ago, so we may have talked.

Just know you can always come back even if you don't need advice and you can help others and give advice.

Your Friend,
Frankie<3

We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
