I don't know if I'm writing this is the right subsection...anyhoo, I am a member who joined earlier this year because of mood issues and other hardships going on in my life. Back then, I felt an immediate welcome both on the forum and on the chat and it did make a difference in my life. The result was that I did not have to come here as often because of my mood was better and things were finally rolling along in my favor. However, I felt the need to come back today and seeing familiar names in the chat, I decided to join in. Unfortunately, few even bothered to say a simple 'hi' and after a few minutes of reading, I realised that my presence wasn't very welcomed. I feel bad because I thought this was a safe space, not a safe place by privilege. I just want to say that I am aware that many people have know each others for months, years and even have met IRL. However, the chatroom should avoid ''clique'' behavior and consider each one who joins in. You never know what a difference it could make in someone's day and life.
