Hey guys, 
I was a frequent flyer on the childline website and as I will be 19 tomorrow I am no longer able to receive support from them. I've been told The Mix is a great website and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. If anyone has any tips for using the website, a favourite thing about it or whatever I'd love it! 

I have a hard time opening up (no matter how cheerful my post seems!) But I'm hoping The Mix becomes my new home and I'll eventually open up with you guys too :)

    Hey @Anch0r33, welcome to the boards :-)

    You've come to the right place. When I joined back in December, I was shy of just saying my age, but it didn't take long to settle in, and now I've mentioned most things about my life on here. The people are really nice and non-judgmental.

    If you're a bit lost, try heading over to Help Desk - there's a lot of information and tips there, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to make a thread and ask.

    Whenever you feel like it, you can tell us how you're feeling. We're always here to support you <3

    Look forward to seeing you around, and have a lovely birthday tomorrow xo

    Hey @Anch0r33

    Welcome to The Mix! It's lovely to have you here. Like Kathleen said, you've come the right place. We're all here to support you <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Hey welcome!!

    Appreciate it can be hard to open up sometimes. The mix is great place so hopefully will help /support you through your challenges 
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.
