Thankful for OOTS
« on: January 16, 2020, 09:31:37 AM »
It has not been so long since I came to partake in OOTS  - I have been reading a little bit here and there. And tears comes to my eyes. Deep emotions are stirred by you all.
All my life I have been the ugly duckling.  Speaking in a fashion that doesn't resonate in with how others speak. Always feeling different, awkward and distant.
Here I have found people who respond to issues or things being shared like...me... I don't cry. But I feel tears rushing through my heart of healing and I have found my tribe! Thank you all for being  you. You are beautiful to me.
On a deep level I have been healed by you. ❤

I share your feelings about OOTS. I find it a place of understanding and healing with a wonderful community of kind, supportive people.

Yes, exactly! And the kid who saw the emperor naked in the emperor's new clothes too!

I dreamed that one day, I will be able to find my "real" family / planet / species. It is a relief to find out that I am not alone and that I am not (necessarily) the one who is mad / crazy / maladjusted. I love this quote:

“In a mad world, only the mad are sane.”
― Akira Kurosawa

Welcome  :bighug:

Thank you Snowdrop, it is a sigh of relief.
Arale, right you are... When you have learned how people lie and deceit and hide in plain sight  - you are that boy who reveals the truth about social codes that are just fake. I guess  welcome to the Matrix 🙃
A question though...how do you use those emojis? Oooold lady...🤪

Heart, you asked how to use the emojis.

If you look above the area where you type your message, you should see a bunch of animated emojis. Click on one, and you'll see that the text for that emoji appears in your message. The  :cheer: emoji, for example, looks like  : cheer : but without spaces. If you click on the [more] link below the emojis, you'll find a load more, like :boogie: and :sunny:.

You can check what the emojis look like before posting your message by clicking on the Preview button. This puts a preview of your message at the top of the screen. Once you're happy, click on the Post button as normal.

Hope this helps!
