...and I'm a completely different person to who I was when I last was here.
Hi everyone, my name is Leo and I am not a new member to RYL. I've had this account 10 years now, and last year this safe haven of a website (which I'd kept an absolute secret for 9 years) was exposed/shared with the people in my life who were the reason I was on here in the first place. I deleted almost everything and left the site, seemingly permanently, to begin focusing on getting my life in order and solving my problems.
And today I've returned, not because I need the help, but because I want to give help. This site gave me a safe place during my darkest times, and now I want to give back to this community by sharing the experiences, lessons and epiphanies I have learnt.
I encourage anyone and everyone to reach out to me if they need assistance, advice or support. I'll be around the forum posting replies and giving advice where I can, and I hope everyone who comes across me will leave the interaction a little better, a little happier, a little stronger.
