Time to hang up the boots - March 10th 2018, 03:24 AM

Hey All
So it has been a great 2 years with TH. I've grown as a person, and learnt heaps of great things. Sadly, everything comes to an end and I think its time I headed out. Sadly, I'm getting busy focusing on uni to build a career and stuff; plus I don't think I have much more to offer. Not to mention the fact I'm nearly 20, so there is a disconnect now.
Before I leave, I want to give a massive shoutout to some users who are incredibly awesome in every single sense of the word. Here they go in no order:

Cynefin- Keep writing, you're a beast at it, and stay the awesome person you are.
Enouement- Stay awesome, you legend; and keep giving awesome nicknames.
Alto- You are an amazing person mate; believe it, and everything is gonna get better.
Narrative- Keep playing RL and say hi to the Doggo for me; and do stay in touch.
Orenda- Keep that chin up, its gonna be sick; and remind me to keep teasing you.
Loving Linux Penguin- You're an amazing bloke, stay awesome.
Celyn- Stay the super friendly person you are; and we shall trade stories soon.
.Brittany- Stay awesome; and take a break for heavens sake.
Sophrosyne- Enjoy life, wherever it takes you.
Eternal- You're super cool, stay that way; and keep doing your own thing.
Onism- You're gonna nail whatever life throws your way and be awesome.
Korembi_Sisu- Best of luck with everything that comes your way mate; keep those shoulders up.
Jess~ - Stay Rad. You're awesome the way you are.
Eaty- You're really an amazing person; believe it

You guys are the best ever and I'm super glad to have met all of you. I will be still dropping by here and there to check PMs and maybe say hi in the chat room (provided I have time), and I think everyone I regularly hang with has my contact details, so we shall stay in touch. Don't worry, you're not gonna get rid of THAT easy.

So all in all, peace out TH. Thank you for everything, and helping me through times that were truly awful, and sharing the times that were sick.


PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

Best luck to you Tort. i just got to know you the past couple of months and you are amazing. Just know if you ever want to come back you can.

Your Friend,

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Best of luck Tort. I will miss seeing you around but you gotta do what's best for yourself at this time. You're super ambitious and I believe you will accomplish the goals you've set out to do.
Take care of yourself, ok? We are here if/when you want to come back or stop by.

No, Torters, noooo!

But in all seriousness, I'm going to miss you. Take care of yourself, okay? We'll be here if you ever feel the need to return.

2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

I knew this was coming and it still bums me out. I'm so proud of how far you've come and I'm even more excited to see the direction you take your life!

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Ah yes, once you turn twenty you are no longer a teen and therefore have no reason to be on TeenHelp anymore. That's why there are no TeenHelpers over twenty. Absolutely none. You will not find a person on the site over twenty, especially not most any of the staff team.

Regardless, remember that you're welcome back at any point, even if it's only to stop by from time to time. Good luck with everything, and I'm sure we'll cross paths again sometime.

then you hide or keep on running

Tort.. I'm 28, so I guess I should have left 8 years ago
Also, I have been told to take a break I can't even tell you how many times this week alone! Haha


You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
