Saying hi as instructed - April 15th 2009, 04:02 AM

I wish to apologize first for the long intro... but I think it's just right to tell everything.

Just introducing myself as instructed by someone (apparently the message deleted itself... sorry I can't remember who it was) I'm 21 years old, and besides a few not so serious problems, I guess I could say I have quite a normal and boring life. So... why did I join?

I'll first start saying that I found out TH quite by accident. I can't even remember what I was searching for... and this forum came up with the results. After reading it, I was quite shocked to say the least.

Some years ago, just walking down the street, I decided to call a friend living in another country just to see how he was doing. He answered me practically crying and saying how he was going to kill himself... The next 45 minutes where quite stressing, but finally managed to calm him down (can't say the same for me, I was close to the point of crying right in the middle of the street. After he promised me that he wouldn't do anything, we hang up... and I told him I would cal him in a couple of hours just to see how was everything. Those hours where the most stressing of my life... I just couldn't stop thinking the worst. Thankfully we spoke later, and he was better. The problem was still there, but he got the courage to face it instead of going out the easy way.

I think everyone has had those kind of thoughts sometime in their life (myself included), the important thing is how you get through them. Life is a looooooong journey... you can't say it all sucks just because part of it does.

Back to the question, why did I join? Because if I can help just a single person (even more if we are talking about young ones... as the majority seems to be here), it will be worth it. And I've gone through some problems in my life, and have seen friends go through worst... I know how a helping hand can make a big difference.

Hey, welcome to TH!
And I quite like your intro, I think thats a great reason for joining TH and it's kind of one of my life philosophies as well, that if I could just help someone at some point, it would all be worth it.
Im glad to hear your friend is alright, btw, its scary talking to someone who you think will end their life

Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.

Music is life. Start living.

Welcome to TH, I'm Lou, and I think I love you already I joke, I joke.
But I do like ya, purely because of
Because if I can help just a single person, it will be worth it.
Anyways, take a glance at the stickied threads in this forum, to get to know about posting and what not, kinda important for helping folks around here, and ask me any questions you may have. Hopefully I'll be able to answer lots xD
Have a good day!

Heyy, I'm yet another buddy. =)
Welcome to the site, I'm Janos, pleased to meet you ^^
It's ashame that your friend has been having such a hard time, but the description might be a bit upsetting so I marked it as triggering. That just basically means that some more sensitive users might get emotionally triggered by it and the warning basically ensures that such users are warned.

Anyways, I'm glad you joined, and I totally agree with Lou here, for that line alone, you seem a sound guy. I'm glad we have someone like you =)

If you have any questions about anything, feel free to add me to the list of people you can talk to =)

Hi, welcome to TH. I just wanted to tell you that your Into was very moving, especially the last paragraph. I feel exactly the same way. I'm going to save the world one person at a time. . .I'm glad that you joined the site, we need people like you here. I think it may have been me that suggested that you post an introduction lol. Here is some suggested reading to get yourself better acquainted with the site How to Use the Forums and Obtaining Support and Advice. If you need anything, or just want to talk just send me a message.

Have a great day,
