    This could sound awful, but I would like to ask anyones advice or opinions on this:

    Hey I really want to help people making posts. I like the idea of this site and would like to thank those involved with it. But I feel I cant be honest to people who make posts anymore because, well, most of the time I just downright agree with what theyre saying.

    How can I be positive and helpful when I myself am so down and feel very similar to the people I want to help? It seems so hypocritical to contradict my own thoughts...

    Well sometimes we just can't, I mean on a bad day I have barely any strength to say anything positive to anyone.
    It's best not to try/force it if you really can't.
    But on a better day, saying positive stuff to other people can lift my own spirits I think.
    Just do whatever you feel comfortable doing.

    I think a lot of people might be helped just by the fact of finding people who see things the way they do. Sort of like proof that they're not "insane" and alone. I think that can help a lot, so don't stop yourself :)

    Even if you can't find it within yourself to give advice, just a simple

    :hug:

    or

    "take care, thinking of you"

    can make the biggest difference. And I agree that making someone realise that they're not alone is comforting, even if it isn't advice.
