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.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

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. My contact details are here.

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.

Quote:SoulRiser, can I worship you? You don't even have to answer, because I already do.
That's just scary. Laugh

Quote:All people in this world are wasting time. Money, war, economy, what the hell is with this crap? It's all worthless.
Yup. And people talk about meaningless shit all the time. "How was your day?" "Oh, it was fine, I took out the washing, made food" ... seriously, who cares? People are so superficial. This is one of the main reasons I'm so "quiet", because I don't care to have pointless discussions about the weather. And then people think I'm antisocial... Laugh

Quote:Why are people so scared of death anyway? It's so stupid if you think about it.
Fearing death is actually holding people back from living life. They try so hard just to stay alive that they miss the point of staying alive... and inevitably fail anyway, 'cause everyone dies eventually.

Quote:Emotions are stupid, they're all in your head. REALITY doesn't have emotions.
They're only stupid if you let them control you... I mean, happiness is an emotion. I wouldn't recommend anyone try to get rid of that anytime soon... in fact, we need more of it. Smile

Oh yeah, and another controversial opinion: I am neither for NOR against abortion! HA! Imagine that! Razz
I think it doesn't matter which of the two a person does, as long as that decision was made with as much care, love and consideration as possible. It really isn't that black and white. So, in general, getting knocked up due to your own stupidity and then having an abortion is just retarded. People who do that should be aborted. Razz

Quote:everyone should be allowed to have any gun (unless you've been convicted of a violent felony)
And I like this idea. Yes

Quote:pacifism only works if your enemy is one too
True, but people tend to target the wrong people as enemies...
