What =F|A= means to me

Hey folks. I just had a really god day and good workout. I'm feeling good so I wanted to share a little bit.

 

In the last 6 or so months I've been here, I've experienced a really powerful and positive change in myself. A lot of it has to do with the quality of the people here. It really feels like a family and that people genuinely care about each other here. Before F|A, I was struggling a lot in my personal life. My mom went into the hospital on christmas day and my dogs were sick and eventually had to be euthanized. I was in bad shape to say the least. I found some really surprising strength here though. That strength was being able to contribute to this community in a meaningful way; I could help make the servers a safe place, report some naughty-naughties and chat with people who really like the games I like. I felt USEFUL since I haven't been able to work for a while. At the same time, in real life, I've been practicing something called "assertiveness". Wikipedia defines it thus: "Assertiveness is the quality of being self-assured and confident without being aggressive." This community has allowed me the opportunity to develop that very productively and since I grew up, and have lived in, some pretty brutal and violent conditions, this has been key to my recovery process.

 

 

The interesting thing about this is that all I feel is gratitude. I feel gratitude because this clan is more or less filled with people that want the best for each other. And while I struggled last year and early this year, I received nothing but motivation and support while I worked on myself. I've gotten so much better too. I have never had so much success in my life before, and F|A has been a valuable part of that process. Quite honestly, I think FA is giving people a place to feel comfortable, respected, and welcome in a way that their life can't, for one reason or another, provide. I might go so far as to say loved, even. And that is something so valuable that it can't be priced.

 

I better stop there before the waterworks fire up and smear my writing. What a good chapter for my book this will be..

 

Sincerely,

 

-V

Thanks for this read V. Been here about the same time as you and I couldn't agree more that this clan/community has a growing number of people that promote a fun and friendly atmosphere for gaming and life-talk. You're not alone, btw. I too have some struggles I'm overcoming... including adulting. :P  Being here has definitely helped me.

This was beautiful just beautifully said.

I feel so much the same as you and am very happy you came out to say this.  Unity and positive outlook a key I feel we all should attempt to turn.

Could not have chosen the words better myself! Very well said, and I feel the same way about =F|A= as well, being a place to not only form bonds, but to strengthen your own and discover yourself further! I feel immense gratitude to have gotten to know you over the past few months I've been in this wonderful community. Most glad, as always, to call you brother! :D
