Hi everyone.

I have resigned from my roles on staff I have been on staff for quite a while but I just feel so burnt out. I have got to the stage where I feel like my advice and support is so poor comparing it to how I use to be able to help people. I have been considering this for a while but I just kept trying to push myself but I have come to terms with the reality that a person can only give so much. I wont say never but maybe one day I may consider coming back I do love this community. I will still be around on here just as much as normal I just don't want the extra responsibility which comes with being a staff member at the moment.

I hope I have done this site proud I would like to thank everyone who made my time being part of the moderating community so awesome and thanks for all the help.

I'm glad you made the decision that is best for you, Justin! I'm happy to hear that you'll still be around the site while taking time to focus on yourself and your needs. Hopefully one day, we'll see your name back in pink (or another color). Take care!

It's always a hard decision, but you always need to take care of yourself first. We are always here if you need anything.

You are braver than you believe,

Sorry to hear that you are resigning, but you are doing what's best for you which matters more. Glad to hear that you'll still be around and that maybe one day you'll consider re-joining staff. Take care, Justin

I'm sorry to see you go; but like others have said, it's important to put yourself first. I'm glad you were able to realize that, and I hope to see you around the site as a non-staff member. Please take care of yourself.

remember not to feel bad and that even if advice doesnt work it only means it wasnt right for the person who got that advice, because of their circumstances or whatever

Hey Justin.
I'm so sad to see you resign from staff, however I've been where you are and I know that sometimes, as much as you'd like to be able to give it your all, it just doesn't work that way. I'm glad you're not leaving us entirely, and obviously if you ever need to talk and unload a little bit you know you can always message me. I hope to see you back in pink one day! Perhaps you could apply for associate for now? At least then you can still do what you can, without the committment of being a full staffie?

Either way, I hope you're taking care of yourself.

Hi there Justin!

It will definitely be sad to see you resign!

But I'm glad you made that decision.

I'm here if you need anything.
