The Mix Community Newsletter - February 2020!

TheMixTheMix Posts: 3,050 Boards Guru
Thanks for being patient on the next installment of the Community Newsletter, everyone!

 
Thanks to our newsletter team who beaver away in the background putting these together, and for bearing with us when we had some delays on the staff side of things recently. :)

Mike & the team :star:
We're @Aife, @Ella, @Gemma, and @JustV - the staff team here at The Mix.

Our DMs are monitored Monday - Friday (10am - 5pm) with limited cover on weekends. We have a great team of moderators looking after the community outside of those hours to check in on any reported posts.

We're not able to provide support on this account. If you need support urgently for any reason, please call 999, go to your nearest A&E or contact Crisis Messenger by texting THEMIX to 85258.

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    I didn't say delete the post. IM just asking if could answers be put in spoilers. Im a bit late for this one cause don't look at pinned threads as much and miss them out and would like to read the riddle without being spolied that is all. 
    And i was hoping your reply would just be like "okay. I'll remember for next time ". That's all. Not a big deal
