Goodbye… sort of.

First I would like to think everyponyone who has been my friend for the last three years. You have truly made my time here some of the best moments of my life.

Some of you may or may not know, but when I joined this site, I was very timid and shy. This site has really helped me come out of my shell. I am much more outgoing and have a better outlook on life, and it’s all thanks to you guys.

Being timid was only the beginning of my troubles. Cursed with a troubled life at home and at high school: I was a mess, which some may remember. I was such a mess mentally from the time that I turned 14 till I was about 19. I suffered from depression, loneliness, and suicidal thoughts among other things.

I can honestly say that, and as crazy as this sounds, Pokémon helped me though the tough times in my life. Having nothing else in life to hold on to but the fantasies of roaming about in the Pokémon world kept me going. It’s for this reason that I will never stop liking Pokémon. I practically own my life to it (and this site).

That being said, something in me has changed recently, and I’m not sure what exactly it is, but I felt I needed to start over; kind of like a phoenix Moltres rising from the ashes. I want a fresh start. So I did just that. I created a new user account here. I also created a new email address. I want to completely let go of everything in my past and start over. It’s for that reason that I will no longer be using this account. It reminds me too much of the past. So if you want to continue to be my friend, please add my other account.

See you on the other side
