Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to make everyone aware that I am formally leaving RYL. It's a decision that I had been batting around for a long time, but then after going through a tough time a couple of months ago and not turning to RYL for support, I decided that now is the time to bow out.

I have had such a wonderful time as a member of RYL and have made some wonderful friends here. The advice and time people put into this site is amazing and you should all be proud of yourselves. The decision to leave is never easy, particularly when holding down two mod was something that I never thought I would be able to step away from without feeling monumentally guilty.

I will hold my hands up and say I made mistakes, I made snap decisions, I hurt people, I didn't always do the right thing, but I always did what I thought was the best thing to do and hindsight is a wonderful thing always. I hope that for the most part I will be remembered as a positive force rather than a negative, as I will always think of RYL.

My reasons for leaving are simply that I got a full time job that uses all of my time, I overcame anxiety and agoraphobia, I got happy, I got healthy in body and mind and I need to move on with the next chapter of my life.

So thank you RYL for always being there and for continuing to support and comfort those who need it. You are not given enough credit for the work you do and the time you put in. Thank you for giving me the chance to make a difference too and for letting me have a safe space to be me.

I will be around for a day or so to clear up moderator things so if anyone is interested in staying in touch obviously feel free to message me.

I wish all of you the best in your futures and I will miss RYL probably more than I would like to believe.

Thank you all.


There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.
My spoken words.
I aint no abacus but you can count on me.

That sounds so positive Liv. Take care of yourself, and I hope things go well for you :)

Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.

We will miss you a lot!

It doesn't matter where you come from; it matters where you go.
No-one gets remembered for the things they didn't do.
We won't all be here this time next year,
so while you can take a picture of us.
We're definitely going to hell,
but we'll have all the best stories to tell.

Liv I did wonder about you when you left over Christmas and wondered where you were and if you were ok.

I'm glad your leaving on a positive note though. Take care of yourself xx
