It me, your neighborhood potato. - November 10th 2018, 11:36 PM

Hey all.

This was never a thread I imagined making any time soon and it makes me incredibly sad to do so. I really didnít want to make one either because I donít want the attention itís going to draw, but I realize that whether I do or donít make one Ė itíll probably be noticed.

Iím not going to talk about why Iím resigning because itís a very personal decision and one that Iíve been sitting on for a long time now.

However, I will say that TeenHelp has changed me for the better over the past nine years and I wouldnít be who I am today without it. I think the past four years have impacted me the most with who I've met and what I've learned about myself, but even when I wasn't as active it still was affecting my life in positive ways through the people I stayed in contact with offsite. I can say with absolute certainty that I wouldnít be alive without the support Iíve received and the friends Iíve made here.

This isnít me saying goodbye and Iím sorry this sounds so sad, but Iím honestly really freaking sad about it even though itís what I need to do. I wonít be as active anymore, but youíll still see me around and I'll still be replying to messages in my usual untimely fashion. Iím not resigning with any intentions of changing my browserís homepage.

Who knows, you might see me back on Staff one day. Life is weird, and things happen Ė just like this is.

ďThere 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.Ē ó Nikita Gill

Potato I am so sad that your a resigning from staff and leaving the forum. But I understand the why your doing it. Just know we are always going to be here for you. I know we don't talk a lot but I will miss seeing you on the forum, and chat.

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.

Aw no Potato, I’m sad you’re off staff. At least you’re not leaving completely so I can still annoy you. You’re not allowed to ever leave competely.

I'm sad to see you resigning but I'm also happy you're still sticking around and not leaving completely. You are valuable to the site, staff or no.

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.
