I agree Dusty. Deer yes I think in any community, lying is not good. Even in real life, lying is not appreciated. Just lying in general! Big Grin

I know this is kinda off-topic, but I just keep thinking about this everytime I see your name somewhere. Don't feel ashamed. Cliché I know, but it's better late than never. I'm a late bloomer myself in several ways and always have been. Looking back on my life I now realise how many things I have misses because of my own incapabilities.
It hurts, but it has made me more determined to make the best out of the days still to come. At my own pace I try to live my life in a way I can enjoy it. Don't let shame or sadness rule your life, please. There's so much more to it than that. For you and for everyone else on here. Smile

HI,

When I first started to read that I thought maybe I had done something wrong. Perhaps making it "too much about me". I have a tendency to do that sometimes. So I am sorry for that.

I know this too is off topic, but I really do appreciate your support. We can't turn back time and change the past. But it's almost a case if we could, would we? I mean, if I had awakened say in 2005 would it have been better or worse? I don't know to be honest.

I could rack my brain on the issue. But it doesn't help me. I know I need to focus on the past to learn from it for my Therianthropy. But aside from that, leave what's there, there and how things have transpired have happened. Realizing I cannot change it. I can feel sad how it happened. But it did.

I really do appreciate your reply. Thank you ever so much. Smile

I find it interesting how much younger folks are in the modern therian scene. I figured myself out when I was around 8 years old, and was well into college before I started looking online. Admittedly, that was because I finally got access to online resources at college. I had a dial-up modem, but the only things around were BBSes and they were unbelievably provincial. It was difficult in those times because it was library research, and any materials that existed covered clinical lycanthropy, which didn't really fit. Since college was how most folks got internet, the majority of the therians I knew were in their 20s.

Personally, I think it is fantastic that resources exist now, and that folks don't have to go through that self-discovery alone.

I remember when I finally found out that my local library had a free dialup connection that would allow people to surf the web through a text based Unix shell at a cool 2400baud, ahahaha. I was ecstatic when I found others like me but by that point, I'd gone through much of the journey alone, as well.

It's cool to meet others that remember those times. Ear Fold

Oh jeez... I go back and forth between hating my age and liking the perks that come with life experience so it's a mix, haha.
