SRS I'm Leaving OT, And Won't Be Returning

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by METALLlC BLUE, Jul 10, 2005.

  1. I'm going to be leaving OT soon. I've been considering it for awhile. OT really can't be apart of the new life I'm moving towards because it's been so much apart of the old life that I'm leaving behind.

    Most members of Asylum are aware of where I've been. You know a lot more about me than most people. I have goals and things I'd like to experience. I can't do them if I don't take small steps and sacrifice the security blankets I've clung to during the fallout. OT has been my substitute for living when living wasn't an option for me. I've been here at OT from the very beginning. From the moment OT existed, I was here. I was apart of the automotive community long before back in 1996,-- 1999 when I heard about the split. It's been a long time for me, and this is not a simple decision!

    I now have an opportunity to really live, so I must get going. There is a lot of things and people waiting for me.

    It has been a hard decision for me to make.

    Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives, and for keeping me company through some pretty tough times. Thanks for listening to me, and for giving me insight, wisdom, laughs, and helping me understand that living really *is* simple, but it's not always easy.

    I'll be gone by the time any of you read this, but I'll check my PM box if questions arise. While all of you have been wonderful, and gracious -- there are specific people who have helped me in making my current decision. Neither of you know how you've helped, but here goes: Peyomp, thank you for being you. I never appreciated you until I finally understood you. It is unfortunate we had differences at one point or another, but as you see it - I see it, it's water under the bridge, and now is all that counts, so thank, and Johan, thank you for being candid and honest with me when I'd ask questions, or talked about my life. Often I didn't like hearing what you had to say, but damnit you were right then, and you're still right now. These truths are self-evident, and I'm glad I could pass on some of what I learned from you both to others. Those of you who I haven't mentioned -- you're all there. Ryebread, Throwdown, Dave, Designer, -- tons of others. I remember all of your names, and I'll keep you in my prayers.

    Please, if anyone ever needs me -- don't be afraid to contact me on AIM: MB58SC.

    Asylum was greater for your presence, and has become lesser from your absence. I will miss MB very much indeed.

    While this is very saddening for all of us who still come here, let me remind everyone that MB is moving on because he is taking positive steps toward the life that he wants. So we should be very happy for him.

    But damnit, I'm still going to miss his input and advice. I can't think of anyone who deserves more credit for making Asylum a safe, rewarding, useful and comforting place to visit.

    I wish you the best, MB.

    I was already in tears after reading the your last post in my thread...the selfish part of me wants to tell you that you can't do this to me. Not now. But I understand that you too have a life to live and things you would like to accomplish. So I am happy for you. I truly hope you will achieve everything you desire, and then some.
    Thank you so much for everything. Te amo mucho....:sadwavey:

    Don't do things in your life that will make you end up in the asylum again. And if you do, don't hesitate to come back. We'll be here for you, your always welcome. Much love :love: from Darketernal.

    METALLlC BLUE vbmenu_register("postmenu_38706471", true); I have great respect for you. I have read your posts all the time, and I must say OT will not be the same without you :(.

    METALLlC BLUE , I wish you the best. Still, I hope at some point you'll reconsider and make your way back to the Asylum.

    Peace

    Good luck on your new life, from another user just like you at a different time and place. Where you are, it would take me years to experience what it's like to be in your shoes. Good luck again!

    :bigthumb: Right on man! Best of luck to you. It's good that you recognized something that you've potentially clung to harmfully and found out for yourself what it would take to get to the next chapter in your life. Even your last message serves as an example to me. Thank you.
