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.

You've only known him through some forum posts lol.

But yeah he's an awesome dude in general. Too bad shit's gotten crazy lately.

I can see just a little bit of light, but it's such a small amount that it's almost hopeless to try to get to.

I've got a fresh opinion on the light at the end of the tunnel, its not actually hope, its the emergence of you.

The problem with the system and our shitty parents is that they beat us down. but if we even do find the courage to stand up, not because we're going to beat them back, but because we've just got better things to do than lay down, then whatever crap is spewed our way we can actually laugh it off and rebut effectively.

The inclination to murder is much healthier than the inclination to suicide, but ignoring toxic people is only easy when you really have a basis upon which to love yourself. self indulgence is a mean trick you play upon yourself, but saying to the world STFU I've got something better to do is a way of properly elevating you above all that crap.

I gotta post this in a better worded way

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.

Self shame is a horrible thing that for whatever reasoned seems to be a way of conditioning in this society.

Like, take too much and you're automatically selfish. Or break something that you didn't even knew how it worked and suddenly you're a horrible person. It continues when you grow up too. People often tell you to "be nice" when in reality you're just learning to be a doormat and you're never honest with yourself.

It's the classic saying: "learn to love yourself before you love others".
