Time to move on - December 26th 2012, 03:31 PM

Hey everyone,

So, as some of you will probably have figured out from the title already, I've decided it's time for me to move on. I've been a part of TeenHelp for the last 7 years or so now, and in that time I've both been helped and hopefully helped a few people out along the way. But the rate at which I've been contributing (beyond the Debates forum, less said about which the better perhaps!) has been declining for a while now, and I've realised it's not going to get any better. Life is pulling me along in a new direction, and unfortunately continuing to contribute to TeenHelp doesn't seem to be part of that. So rather than just meander along for a bit and draw out the inevitable, I've decided that I'm going to make a clean break as of the end of this year.

Being part of this community has been a real privilege. There have been highs, and a few lows as well, but what strikes me above all is the fact that in an increasingly cynical age there is still a strong sense of support, compassion and camaraderie among the young - and as I'm 25 I feel I can get away with putting it like that now! But I digress. It's really encouraging to see, and I ask only that you don't lose sight of that in the years ahead. They're very good qualities to take into the wider world, and much needed ones too.

All the best everyone, and take care.

Dave

Hey Dave

I've never gotten a chance to talk to you during my time on here but I've seen you a lot around here, especially the Debates Forum. I think that that Forum will miss your presence the most. It has always been a pleasure to read your posts in there.

I wish you the very best of luck with your life!
May you never come across any situation that brings you back here, but if you do, just know that we're always here to give you all the support that you might need.

Hi Dave!

I'll be sad to see you go since I do enjoy reading your replies in the debates forum but I hope that life works out okay for you and everything goes to plan

If at anytime you feel the need to come back then you'll be more than welcome. Take care!

Hey, Dave!
It's a shame I haven't gotten to speak to you before but still sad you're leaving. I completely understand why though. I respect that and hope life pulls you in the direction you want. Just always stay strong and hopeful.

Good luck. May the force be with you.

Dave, I'm going to miss debating with you. Have a great life, I know great things are in your future.

OH wow, Dave,

We only talked once or twice, and often enough I was stuck in your typical, every day type of debate (sarcasm, there is a unique aspect to every debate I come across).

I hope you have an amazing life, and if you ever do want to come back, feel free of course

I will miss your colourful insight around the forums,

Take care,

Jay.

I have seen you around a lot in the past, but either or, take care of yourself, if you do wish to come back, know we are all here for you.

Take care.

It always makes me laugh when I see you completely annihilate people in the debates forum and I don't think teen help will be the same place without you.

I hope life is kind to you and that you have a good one.

Au Revoir

It'll be weird to not see you around! You've contributed a lot around here. I totally understand, though. I wish you the best for the new direction that life is taking you! Thanks for your encouraging words. You'll be missed around here!



Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

Re: Time to move on - January 1st 2013, 12:13 AM

Thanks for all the messages everyone - really appreciate them. Wasn't an easy decision to make but it's the right one on balance. Still, I'm a firm believer in "never say never" so will keep an open mind, and in the meantime I leave with some good memories. And yes, Traci, it's going to feel strange not debating with you for me too!

As it's now 2013 here, in accordance with what I said before it's now time for me to sign off. Once again, all the best, take care and farewell but hopefully not goodbye.

Dave

I never really took the opportunity to talk to you, which I regret. But, I've seen you around the site (particularly the Debates forum) quite a bit since I started here. Like Charlotte said, it's going to be strange not seeing you annihilate people, but I wish you the best in 2013 and the rest of your life. Take care of yourself, Dave.
