i'm leaving kp.

for good.

logging off for the last time.

so that's out in the air.

i'm so happy to have found all the good friends i've made here, and i love you all very much. take care of yourselves, ok? you're important. you're loved. you're beautiful.

i'm logging off for invasively personal reasons that i don't really want to get into, but i hope you all don't miss me too much, and if you do, my gmail is wombatwalker2937@gmail.com (you can also text me from there if you have an iDevice), just let me know who you are before you email me. i'm going to miss you guys a lot, and i know i'd never have advanced my writing to the point it is today or have gained so much insight into gsrm/sj issues without you guys guiding me. i'm so grateful to this website and all it has to offer to young writers as well as those struggling with depression, anxiety, or gsrm issues. i know this site was not originally meant for the latter, but i can honestly say that you guys have saved my life at least once and i wouldn't change being here as i am now for the world. i'm proud of how far we've come as as a community, but more than that, as a family.

but kp is no longer a safe space for me, and i need to let it go (*chorus of frozen enthusiasts break into song in the background*). i guess i'll do individual shoutouts.

isaac-- of course, you're first. i love you so much and i'm so happy whenever you're happy. you're such a talented writer and amazing human being and i know you're not too active on here anymore, but i'm proud of you and the progress you've made. for every step backward you've taken, you've made a leap forward. don't forget that.

mary elizabeth-- you don't let me wallow in my self pity and remind me that i'm worth more than that, and i'll be eternally grateful that you do. i love you and your selfies and your sarcasm.

elliot-- you're more comfortable with yourself than i've ever seen you and i hope that feeling never goes away. you deserve all the happiness and security in the world, ok?

clay-- i love you so much and you've helped me more than you'll never know. you're so important and i'm happy that you're figuring out who you are. i would not be here writing this today without you.

general shoutout to rebecca, tia, megan, meera, livi, and everyone else on here who's helped me through some of the toughest shit in my life. i love you all so much. and i promised myself i wouldn't get too sappy with this letter, but honestly, what else are goodbye letters for?

that's pretty much it. thank you for reading, thank you for writing, thank you for being here. thank you.

with love,

NOO! Well, I know that anything I say won't bring you back, so I guess this is goodbye. I'm glad you had an enjoyable time while you were here. I hope your writing goes well and things get better. We will all miss you.- Panthera tigris tigris (Grace)

I never really got to know

I never really got to know you, but I'm really sad you are leaving. :( Everyone has different reasons for leaving, and no one can stop you, but I wish you would stay longer. It always sucks when KPers leave this website, but I hope you still enjoy writing and I'm sure all your lovely work will still continue to be read. I will miss you, and I'm sure everyone else on KidPub will too. Bye! :D

No matter how good or bad you think life is, wake up each day and be thankful for life. Someone somewhere else is fighting to survive.

Bye! It's a shame I didn't really get to know you, you seemed so nice, but it was nice to at least sort of meet you. winkfrown
