Thanks for the birthday messages!

This will definitely (I think) be my last post here, so I probably need to give an apology.
When I look back at my posts on this forum, I think 'Was I ever that young?' - even though it was only two years or so ago. I feel like I came here, ranted a lot about my beliefs, got upset that people didn't agree with me and then left without even a farewell message.
You're all a great community, and I feel like I failed to realise that when I was active here, and I regret that, but I can't really post here anymore without thinking back to all those posts I made.

The main reason I'm posting now is to give you all the farewell and respect I missed out on giving you the first time round. I'm going properly now, and I won't be coming back, but I want you all to know that it's not your fault and that you are a great group of people.

So, keep it up, and farewell!

It''ll be a shame to see you go. We were all young once and maybe said and did some things we regret, but that's what life is all about - making mistakes and learning by them. Nobody is perfect and nobody (despite what they might think) can give you all the answers. You have to go through life picking and choosing the things that work for you.

Best of luck for your future and if you ever change your mind, I'm sure you'll be welcome back. :)

When I was a teenager I thought boys were adorable, my bum was big, and I was going to be a pop star. I can't imagine wanting to be confronted with that again... good luck putting your past behind you! :)

This got me thinking about quotes so if
LP Hartley in The Go-Between wrote:the past is a foreign country and they do things differently there


then this surely means that

Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland wrote:It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.


But perhaps the best one is this

Jim Rohn wrote:Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present

- no arguing that one. ;)

Be happy Captain and remember the wisest quote of all time - never say never :whistle:
