Already thinking about leaving. « on: March 21, 2021, 03:48:20 PM » Author: desktoptrashcan
I don’t feel welcome here. (Or anywhere, for that matter.) It’s not anyone in particular, it’s just the overall feeling that I get that I’m just not welcome because of who I am. If I could point out someone that’s not helping, it’s a certain person with their actual name starting with an R. Also my dad, but he had an abusive childhood, so I can’t blame him.
Maybe I should jump off of a tower and relieve this world of my worthless presence?  :(

You're welcome here, just as everyone who joins this site. If need someone to talk to, I'm here. If you need help for those feelings, get professional help.

Everyone has a purpose, keep your head high. Ending your own life would just spread the pain to others so it's not worth it.

I’ve been going to a psychologist recently. It helps, that’s for sure. Today was just a particularly hard day for me. Depression is horrible.

Don't leave. As I've said to other people in the past when they've been thinking of it, if you do this, anyone who is upsetting you or who you think is forcing you to leave has effectively won. Don't give them that satisfaction.

As far as is possible, ignore them. If you're talking about another member here, then let us know who it is; if they post comments on your photos or topics, report them to us. We can take action, but only if we know the offender(s).

I am in no way a qualified counsellor, but I have been told I am a good listener; I'm always open to a chat, either by PM or even phone if it helps.

Take care  :-* :love:

It’s nice to see that some people actually care.  :)

Been there, done that, got several T-shirts. Keep lighting those lamps (although avoid  :eoled: if you can)  ;) :mrg:

Please don't leave leave. LG can't afford to lose good people. Even if you do leave you can run away from your problems forever. It's something that I've learned from experience. It takes a strong man to turn around and walk back into the fire and face the struggle. You're a Texan, no problems are stronger than an all American Texan!

Please don't leave. I'm always welcome. I have been struggling with anxiety and mild depression lately, and that's how I feel.

We care about you and everyone who enjoys lighting is welcome and appreciated here on LG  :love: I understand the struggles of anxiety and depression, having them myself, I can totally empathize.

There is absolutely no shame in seeking help and I'm glad to hear you're seeing a psychologist. When you get to a bad place mentally and emotionally, just know there are compassionate and caring people right in your community (counselors, religious leaders, healthcare groups, and many others) who want to help you and listen to your story. I wish you the best and hope you find joy and meaning in life through your passion for lighting.

Kind regards,

Camden  :)

Please don't leave, no matter what very few people may say, you are welcome here, do not let a couple of people convince you that you're unwanted by the majority of us here.

As I've said to other members here who've had issues here , I know it's difficult but ignore the people who don't like you and concentrate on the ones who do !! By giving up , YOU lose and THEY win !! Do NOT allow then to win !! Life is short enough already . Hang in there , things WILL get better !!  :bulbman:
