RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

^ Claiming that there is no good nor evil is the justification for many evil acts.

I love love.

Nice post! Talking about unconditional love is so easy, as there is no possession.

RE: Love

Unconditional love, a love attributed to selflessness, it is mostly about them , extremely rare, difficult to feel if you are mostly selfish, and yes it is possible, but as said before it must belong to a very selfless heart. Most people give out conditional caring wether consciously or unconsciously. Since it is a selfless matter, unconditional love is often mistaken for submission, that is why it is rejected so much. Unconditional love is the most important thing in life, it is the key to true happiness and unity and to bring heaven to earth.


Compassion for enemies

I understand that to remove the veil of darkness, one must feel for their enemies.
Once again the world will become more heavenly, if one does not feel compassion they will only hurt themselves and be trapped in a ring of suffering.

Sex vs marriage, yes it is possible and superficial

No, love is independent, infatuation is the word you are looking for, dependency leads to suffering and it is not mature love.
True that you may feel down but it is not their job to make us happy.

Love

Nobody can fully define love, but one thing everyone should agree on, is that love is supposed to be a positive thing, if it is positive, than it shouldn't be hurtful

True love

Learning to see past all the flaws and good things about a person and seeing them for what they are, a person, and still care very much about them is my definition of true love. I see love as more of an attitude than a temporary selfish affection, their is logic in true love.

I think it allows freedom.

Love is not about the government

Love is not religious and it is not rooted in sexual activity, but learning to control and maintain the sexual urges is important in learning how to replace lust with love.

Love is not sexual pleasure!
That there is one of the biggest lies known to humanity. A lie that has hurt many people. A lie almost as ridiculous as eternal punishment in hell.
If selflessness is sexual, than rape, casual sex, and sexual coercion (all of which is too common) is love. Sex does not equal love.
True love can exist without a sexual side, sexual pleasure is usually about pleasing yourself, but if sex is treated more life a gift to share than a tool or an absolute necessity to be chased after, than selfless caring can begin to emerge.
