Re: Hi, I'm new here! - A place to get to know the forums :)

Hi Ben and everyone else here,

 

My name is not too important but I look forward to this place a lot. A month ago, I lost a lot of things and people that matter to me and now I'm just kind of trying to scrape by.

 

I have severe depression and anxiety. I am also, oddly, a extrovert at heart. I like poetry and Shakespeare. I love too many things to list but mostly when I'm in the passenger seat with people I adore.

 

My favorite color is yellow. And my favorite way to relax use to be holding on to my best friend but now that hes gone - I just kind of look at my plants and try to stay in the moment to relax.

 

I hope I wrote this right, and I hope I don't sound too lame. It's nice to be here,

Thanks for the warm welcome, I love what Reach Out does and am becoming a Builder. 

 

Love to relax with a warm hot choccy in hand and watch a good movie or dance crazily to some music, especially in Winter.

What's your favourite colour?

My favourite colour strangely enough is blue and yellow. Yellow because it's cheerful and reminds me of sherbet lollies shaped like lemons and sunflowers. Blue because it reminds me of rainy days, jumping in puddles and water. 

 

What's your favourite way to relax?

Honestly, put on a random live jazz mix from YouTube.

There's usually a background sound of rain and the comments are usually tame and relaxing.

I could honestly always fall asleep to it. 

Other then that listening to real rain. 

Baths with lavender in it. 

Or a good book, a cup of tea/ hot chocolate and my favourite stuffy beanie.
