Welcome me, I'm new! - April 7th 2018, 01:14 PM

Just kidding.

I've actually been here for almost a decade now. I joined when I was fifteen, and a lot has changed since then. I've taken breaks from the site, changed staff positions, even met some TeenHelpers in person. So, I'm not new. But I do need to introduce myself.

For a long time I've felt disconnected from my birth name, and for the past few months I've been going by a different one around certain friends. I think it's time to make that name public. So from now on, I'd love it if all of you could call me Charlie. I may change my name again at some point, but this is the one I'm comfortable with for now. I'd also like to give a huge shoutout to those of you who knew this name already but have kept it quiet at my request. Consider this your blanket invitation to use the name freely around the site now.

Anyway, that's all I had to say. I may be a little busy over the next few days but then it's business as usual. I love this site and the people on it, so I'm definitely not going anywhere anytime soon.

So, thanks for your time, and I'll see you all around.

Take care,
Charlie

Cool! Hi, Charlie!


Resilient
1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
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.

CHARLIE CHARLIE CHARLIE. I can shout it from all the rooftops now.

Seriously, though. I know how hard this has been and I am so proud of you. <3


“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

I am more than happy to call you Charlie.


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.
