Re: Tell me why you joined this forum and why you love it!

@musicfan_xo I can understand the difficulty with parents being involved in the details of your life..I love my parents loads and they are super supportive, but there is always that weirdness that comes with them knowing and sometimes that makes it harder to reach out to them. For what it's  worth I think you're doing a good job with it, a lot of people exclude their parents from the details, but it's now something you can always have as support.

Do you speak to your online friends often? Is this through gaming or something different Smiley Happy

Hi @Potatoes_are_good  !

 

YOU ARE CORRECT potatoes are a S-tier, high-quality food. So versatile, so good. 

I love this forum because it has exposed me to so many different people, mindsets, backgrounds, and experiences. It made me more aware of what others go through on a daily basis, and its given me the opportunity to provide and receive support whenever life gets too much for me.

 

Speaking of, we are here to listen to you no matter what it is. Hopefully, you are feeling better, but if not I'm happy to hear why and talk about it.
