I've not been around a lot lately, and I'm about to be around a lot less. And I think everyone around here deserves an explanation.

When I'm gone, I'm never really gone. I think about this place a lot. It's meant a lot to me over the past year and has changed me in many ways.

Unfortunately, that's really not so good for me, spiritually. I've had a revivial of faith, so to speak... and this place has seriously cultivated every un-Christlike whim I've ever had. I feel very guilty about a lot of things I've done, said, and realized since being here.

There's been a lot of prayer for mercy and forgiveness, as well as guidance in getting my morals, ethics, and behavior back on track. I'm hoping things aren't too late for me. I've strayed a long way from where I ought to be, but I believe in the saving grace of my Lord... and that's all I've got to go on.

This is hard for me. I feel a bit like I'm cutting off a lifeline, the one thing that didn't leave me when everything else did... everyone here has loved me as I am, regardless. But, in that, I've been allowed to grow increasingly comfortable with my inner demons, and instead of striving to become a better person, all I've done is allow them to completely run - destroy - my life. I cannot claim Christ and continue to complacently live in my sin. I have to do something. If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off, so they say. But life becomes harder without your right hand...

So life is going to be a lot harder, until I grow in my faith and am a strong enough person to be here and still live my life in a God-pleasing manner. I don't know when that'll be. Only patience and grace will tell.

I love you all, and will miss you terribly. Thank you.

Good luck, Missy. We all know how hard it is to slaay our personal demons. I wish you luck and I'll keep you in my prayers.

Well, you will be missed.

Honestly, perhaps you ought to enjoy your life rather than try to be a better person, because in the end, the only person you can be is yourself.

But regardless, this isn't a thread for religous discussion, I hope you find peace within yourself, by whatever means you see fit, and I hope that life treats you well, until you return.

Missy, I understand exactly what you mean. I was the same as you, up until a few months ago when I had an awakening, something that made me realise what was amiss. I've been through many changes myself, and now I'm finding myself on that road to inner peace (going via bloody knackered!!) which means that a lot of what I thought was important is now not the case.

I wish you well on your journey, Missy, and hope that you come out of your experience as a wiser, better and - most importantly - happier person.

***Hugs***

Take good care of yourself, and be happy, medear. Eat your greens, stand up straight, don't stay up too late, and don't sit too close to the TV - you'll get square eyes, you know.

Seriously, hope you're happy doing whatever you do.

I always want the best for my friends, and so if this is what you need to do then I really wish you well in it.

Faith, as has been shown by other discussions on here, is one of those things that is difficult to explain to others, so we just have to trust and believe that you're doing what's right for you. I guess even those of us who don't have faith in God/gods have faith in our friends.

You go and do what you need to. Find peace. We'll be all the happier to see you as a stronger person when you're ready to come back here.

Take care.

Well, can't say I didn't see this coming.

You know I've always loved you in spite of (and because of) your flaws. But if you think you need to change that...well, I wish you the best of luck and hope that you find what you're looking for.

I'll miss you.

I know Missy and I have had our differences and have been aggressive toward eachother in the past, but Missy has a beautiful soul and I sincerely pray that she find peace within herself and her Faith and that she come back to us.

God bless you, Missy. I mean it.

*Hugs Missy*

I never normally hug people, so treasure it. Good luck with whatever you do, and know that we will support you in all of your spiritual dealings. Thanks for being a kick-ass mod (and boy did you kick some serious ass).

See y'all!
