I don't have to say anything here.
You know what you went through all those years ago. And you know the refuge you discovered here. You know how you felt during those days as @Roguecog_Anglepinner and @Nautilus_Lightblast, and how with each new avatar came conflicts, joys, and sorrows. You know what you struggled with, what you wanted to say, but didn't say, what you wanted to do, but didn't do. How you felt, but never told anyone. How you didn't feel, and told everyone.
You can't change any of that past, but you can change the future. Hopefully, you've figured a way out of the hole you fell into a few years back been slowly creeping out of. Who knows, maybe you even got out with a little help.
Well, however you did it, I'm proud of you. I know how you felt about those words back then, and hopefully your opinion has changed since.
I am proud of you.
Your younger and less mature self (You have matured, haven't you?),
Navigating the way.
