It's Been a Very Long Time Everyone... - September 9th 2017, 08:08 AM

To Whoever Is Reading This,

I'm sure some of you (or a handful of you) may have noticed I have been gone from this site for a very long time, and not been very active. However, just recently I started coming back on here because of a recent experience I had with a now former friend of mine. If you're curious to learn about that story, feel free to check it out on my blog under the title "When You Know to Say Goodbye." I feel like this is the only place I can vent out about anything as opposed to posting these sorts of things on Facebook. It just helps me get a better sense of knowing that I don't have to worry or think about any social media drama that could happen because we all know the hell of a mess that can make.

It's been a difficult past month for me personally because of my loss of this friend of mine, but I have been slowly getting better at coping with it. Though still not completely, that's okay. I believe that time does heal all wounds, eventually anyway.

I don't think I'll be applying to any staff positions on here like I used to, but I will pitch in and help wherever it is needed, and whenever I can. If you ever want to talk to me directly about anything, feel free to leave me a VM or PM and I'll be more than happy to chat with you.

I also wanted to take this time to mention that I'm sure a handful of you have been browsing through the Self Expressions section of the Forums, and have seen me write out quite a bit of poetry. I find that putting all my thoughts and crucial life lessons to be learned into poetry has helped me better cope with everything that's been going on, and has gone on in my life. If you ever feel the need to look for more positivity/inspiration in your life, I recommend you take the time to read some or all of the poems I have written, and you may just learn something you haven't learned before, or be reminded of something crucial you've long forgotten.

Anywho, whichever time of the day that you're reading this, I hope you've all been doing well in your own lives. We're all having our own battles in life, but I hope through all that, you all take care of yourselves and remember to enjoy your day. Not just today, tomorrow, weeks or months from now. Every. Single. Day.

See you around everyone.

-B

Welcome back! I have missed seeing you around! I'm sorry to hear about your friend, but it's good that you feel you can come to talk about your experiences. Even though you aren't thinking of applying for staff again, it's lovely to hear that you'll still be helping others when you can. And will have to check out your poetry too! See you around

Welcome back! I remember you and I'm glad that you decided to return. I hope that writing helps you and I'll have to check out what you've posted in self expression.

Take care.

Thanks everyone for all the welcome backs and the sympathies! It's nice to see that there are people out there who do still care. I hope all of you stay genuine at heart.

I'm sorry I'm late, but I wanted to say welcome back! It's great that you've found a healthy coping mechanism to deal with your grief, and what better way than to write?! I will definitely pop over to the Self-Expression forum to see your work in a minute. Don't be afraid to reach out if you need to, or if you want to talk privately, feel free to drop me a PM.
