5 years ago, on a very dark day, Miss_S was banned from a particular forum for being a follower of Christ, never to return. That day showed that many people Miss_S thought were her friends, weren't really friends after all.
Today, I am returning to this forum after a 3 week suspension, and I can say that I hardly had the same experience here. So some notes of appreciation and thanks are obligatory.
@Eerie_Coppernight, first and foremost. Without you, I would not be back on the forum. Thank you for contacting me when no one else was talking, for putting up with my fragile mental state when everything was at the bottom, and guiding me through the apologies I needed to make. It has proven invaluable for me to talk to you, for you helped me to recognize where I was wrong.
Thank you also for carrying the apology to Ariella for me.
@Jessie_Dearsnap, for forgiveness and restoration. Your assistance has also proven to be invaluable. I am grateful to have you on my contact list.
@Iliara_Mustardtop, for giving me a much needed break. Also, for putting up with the longest explanation thing I have ever sent on Discord to anyone. It massively helps me to write things out to different people, and each time I learn something new.
@Jones_Elderview: Your remark on avoiding accusatory comments and language (which you made on chess) was more helpful than you're probably ever going to know.
Thanks for sticking with me through this one as well. Others may not see the value in what you say, but I'm willing to vouch for it.
@Hans_Oddcraft, for not killing me. Even though I probably deserved to die.
@Lilliana_Umbrellascope, for lightening the mood. The whole matter with the invites really released the tension when I needed to laugh. Thank you for reminding me that I needed to take care of the mess that I had made with other people in addition to dealing with the disaster inside of my head.
@Levi_Orangeburst and @James_Maxfeather, for being there for me. Being banned can get lonely, so it was good to hear from both of you.
@Hanna_Brassheart, for being there for me towards the end. It was good to read encouragement from you.
@caleb_Larkmagnet1, for helping me out with my server, and all the song recommendations. Still looping those mashups.
