Dear Retro community;
Thank you for giving people like me a place to feel welcome, and thanks for always encouraging us all to embrace our hobbies and interests.
In the past, I’ve been bullied, ganged up on, made to feel like I didn’t belong... or that me, or my feelings don’t matter, at all. I’ve had people care more about likes and follows than an actual friend, I’ve had ‘friends’ make me feel absolutely terrible about myself for petty reasons. I’ve been called fake, I’ve been forced to question who I am, and my worth. (Which, is a really shitty, awful thing to feel.)
I’ve been manipulated over and over, taken advantage of, used, I’ve been told to kill myself.... the list goes on...
but I’m still here. ❤️
Thank you to those of you who make me feel just the opposite. There are way more of you, and that’s what’s important. 🥰💖
THANK YOU @the_dmgenius for saying such nice things about me, and gifting me this beautiful hand painted Game Boy shell. ☺️
It’s perfect, and I can tell you put so much heart into this! Once I find my screwdriver I will do a live feed to put it together. ❤️
I don’t think we realize just how important it is to be kind for the right reasons, and this gesture is one of them. I will always appreciate this, and all of you! ☺️
I’m so happy to call you guys my friends, I feel very connected to, and loved by a lot of you.
So thanks, you’re fucking rad. ❤️
