Alright, I think we all get a little crazy from time to time. I am starting this thread because I have seen people talk about how depressed they are. DrCrowTStarWars is the most recent example that comes to mind. I don't mean to call him out, but he has posted his feelings rather prominently, so I don't think he'd mind. This thread is meant only for either sharing your deepest troubles (in other words, not the petty stuff like the b*tching thread), and for those who wish to offer support. No teasing, no mocking, no bickering, no side conversations about someone.
My reason for starting this thread in this particular instance stems in part over guilt for teasing DrCrow. He is clearly a bright guy with some amazing insight into characters and stories. He also has some extreme, irritating, and dangerous political views that have caused me to criticize him rather cruelly at times. And then he also has some drastic self-critical views that make me fear for him. So in my attempt to offer support, I wish to share this:
DrCrow: you are a worthwhile person, and there is no doubt in my mind that your family is grateful you are a part of them. You hold some noble ideals and clearly want a better world to live in. You have some amazing insight and clearly are an intelligent person. All this is coming from someone over the Internet who has never met you. But my opinion should not matter so much. I am certain your family, flesh and blood people who know you personally, love you very much and want you to be happy. I am sure that if you take the time to think about it, there are many who love you: friends, classmates, clergy. Don't worry about what a bunch of people who for all you know could be Bingowings socks think about you. Yes, I am a real person, but to you, I am nothing more than a bunch of words. I will never meet you in real life. My critical statements should not matter to you, nor anyone else's. If I can do anything to offer you further cyber support, let me know :)
