Dear Toy Soldiers,
With sadness and a bit of a broken heart I have to tell you that I’m going to step back as admin as well as Toy Soldier. I haven’t been with it for a while now, and have been feeling more and more alienated from this community. This wasn’t an overnight decision and I stuck around for a long time because I didn’t want to leave the other admins alone with all the work.
But truth is, I’m not really a member of this community anymore. A lot of the friends I made along the way have moved on or became inactive, and a lot of the efforts I made throughout the years just didn’t resonate with the community – and that’s fine. I tried to keep it up and running, because I believed in the cause of TSU – to make this world a better place for everyone.
I’ve come to the conclusion that, for myself, there are other ways to change the world.
And I’m very thankful for the friendships I made along the way, and I will never forget that it was TSU in the first place that paved the way for me to be the person that I am today. It helped me gain confidence and overcome anxieties. I was in an awful place when I joined, and it elevated me and gave me the support, energy and power to work on myself.
I’m grateful for all of this, but it’s time for me to move on. I wish every single one of you the best for your lives. We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled with what we do and who we are.
