Life - My one year WF anniversary

I'm cutting it close, but it's still January 30th for me and it marks one year of me being a part of this wonderful place. It's trippy thinking back on where I was last year and how quickly time went. This day seemed so far away. I didn't even realize it was approaching until yesterday and I thought "Holy crap, it's been a year"

I will say I know that in the last year you guys have helped shape me into who I am in this moment. The advice, the creative freedom, the special people I've encountered here that have helped me more than I can ever possibly let them know. I feel like my opinion is considered and valued and I actually feel like I can do things. I'm very hard on myself and I always think I fail at everything or I don't do a good job, but I've gotten such overwhelming support in everything I've done on here, especially being on staff.

I love it, and I love all of you and couldn't ask for a better internet community.

I was at a crossroads of sorts last year when I joined. I was trying to move on from a life that I clung to the last string desperately because I was searching for self worth.

Now, I still struggle with this, just in different aspects of my life, but I've really found solace and comfort in this place when I've needed it the most. I genuinely love and care about this place and everyone in it so much and I hope I can show that in what I do here.

I know I've dropped off the creative sphere for awhile but I'm going to try and get back into it. I need to tell myself that I can, because I can. I need to believe in myself. I feel that all of you believe in me, so why shouldn't I believe in me?

Thank you WF. Thank you to those who have made a significant impact in my life. Thank you beautiful WF members. Thank you to my Dark Side family. I'm honored and blessed to be a part of it and serve this forum with you all.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. =)
