Hey <3

You can probably gather from the title what this is about. I've been thinking for a while, and I've finally decided to leave the boards.

In some ways, this place makes me feel worse - let me make it clear that that's nothing to do with you guys :) - because of... Stuff... Going on in my life... Yeah, long story haha. But I honestly think that I have to leave to help calm some of my feelings. I hope that doesn't affect anyone too much.

I just wanted to post this to say goodbye. You're all really nice people. And thank you so much for all your help to me.

Stay strong lovelies <3

    I thought I'd just drop by to say something <3 And I'm sorry for moaning about my feelings a little in this post, it's just that I need to explain.

    When I posted this, I was upset and felt like I'd just had enough of being here. I've calmed down since, and now I'm thinking - if I'd be wanted and welcome, I may be willing to come back at some point.

    That's why my avatar now says, "currently inactive".

    My mind's in a complete state, if you hadn't noticed, and I'm really not okay :joy: So what I can say is that I'm serious about at least taking a long break from here. And there's also a good chance that I won't be coming back.

    I don't feel like isolating myself is exactly a good way to handle things. But right now, I just want to do something to make my mind shut up at least a little bit. If my feelings are too overwhelming, it's even harder to do anything about my life, anyway. I guess I need to step away from here while I try to help myself - please pray for me lol - and I also just feel like I need to give you all a rest from me. Another thing is that, when I'm like this, I could end up unintentionally being a prick on here or something.

    I'm pretty much stepping back now. Keep on fighting and helping each other, love you all and care about you so much <3
