Bye :'( - February 14th 2016, 04:14 AM


So this is really killing me to type. Um, I have to leave to the site. I've gotten to the point that I'm scared when I am older all of the stuff I've post will come back to bite me in the butt. Since I've posted very personal stuff. I just am not at a place in my life where I can handle with those added stresses. I hope you understand. I really don't want to leave. Just feel I have too. I thought when I signed up that this would be a "safe" and um secure place for me to open up to people. Since I am not able to do that in person. I guess I was wrong. Sorry. I am just very upset that I have to leave the site. If I didn't then I would be here and never post which wouldn't be hoping anything. So yea.. II want to thank you for everything you've all done for me! Hopefully in the future we can talk soon.

Take care and stay strong! <3

I am sorry to hear you're going but I totally understand your reasoning. If you ever want to return in the future you can. <3

Another suggestion is trying to remove personally identifying information on your profile, such as by using a nickname and not including your full location, so it's less likely you'll be identified.

Let it come and let it be...

Awe! I will miss seeing you around, but I understand the reasoning behind it. You could do what Dez suggested and just remove anything that could be used to identify you, and this site is worldwide so it would be hard to track you down if anyone came on here.

I hope to be able to talk you again some time, look after yourself okay? Don't forget you can always come back whenever you want to. You have been wonderful to have on here, and I will definitely miss you.

Take care.

and laughs without fear of the future.

Completely valid concern. I Google myself periodically for this reason (especially since I put my volunteer experience from here on my resume) and, unless someone knows my username (which I don't give out) I know they won't find anything. Unless they Google my exact username and the name of the site together, nothing comes up.

Sorry to see you go! I do understand your concerns though, as I have felt the same way in the past. It's always best to talk when you feel safe, otherwise, you may worry about people finding out (though that's generally hard to do, but still a valid concern). I hope that you are able to get support offline. And don't forget that you can always use Live Help and HelpLINK which is completely confidential. Take care

Take care of yourself I understand your reasoning, although it's the same for pretty much everywhere online, the internet is not a particularly private place. However, if you need anything, feel free to PM me, they are private.

Hey, Kaliope.

I am sad to see you leave, and especially for this reasoning when you want to stay. I just wanna say that I understand your reasoning one-hundred percent as that reason is a large factor of what has made me want to leave the site in the past as well. However, you can PM me anytime. That is private, and you shoild have support, you know? You've got many friends here who care a lot about you so don't be afraid to talk to any one of us if you need a listening ear.

In the meantime, please take care and hold on. Don't forget to recognize all the strength and kindness you have. You can pull through anything. And you are not alone.

I can see that you've made some progress, and I understand your concerns. But you'll always have a family over here, and we'll keep things private. We just want to see you happy, and know that things will definitely get better.

There's absolutely no reason for you to doubt yourself, as you've already proven yourself to be a sweet, kind individual who has a lot of heart and compassion for others.. and you're going to get even better as time goes by.

We're always going to be around for you, and we are not going anywhere!

It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.

rant to me if there's anything!



As usual... pm me if you are ever having a tough day, and I'll respond immediately.

You guys deserve to be happy no matter what.. okay? You people are a bunch of lovelies ... and no matter what, you people deserve to be happy.

Well see ya I guess. You can always make a new teenhelp account if you feel that you have posted information on your current one that people could tie to you in real life.

But here are a few things you can do to ensure that what you post on the internet is never tied to you personally:

-periodically google search your name, email address, skype username,etc. If anything comes up in these searches that you don't want people who know you to see, request that the websites take those posts down.
- never post your full name anywhere (obviously)
- never post your email address or skype username on any public website (such as reddit , yahoo answers, teenhelp,etc.). If you do- anyone who knows your email address can google it.
-never make an account on any website with a similar username to your email address or last name.
-if your email address or skype username comes up in a google search- stop telling people that address and make a new one.
-never post stories that are uniquely yours online. For example, don't tell stories that could identify you to people that read them- be vague about certain details.

Just remember that if you are answering a person's question on an internet post- anything you say can come up in a google search. So, for example if you were to tell someone your common email address or full name in a post on teenhelp- anyone who knows that address/name will be able to see your profile here by typing that in a google search.
