    Hello all. I know that this time is really hard for some people. But just a reminder that you are good hands here. Do seek help, don't get bogged down with worries. And please don't listen to judgemental people out there. Some people will call you selfish or stupid or other names. Don't listen to them. They might be worse. Stay optimistic! Stay positive!

    Hello Brent, you are right judgemental people will only feed negative thoughts and will, unfortunately, find a crack they can weave their way through, block that access point and deny them any ability to enter, even if they pretend to be friendly, but you know what the outcome will be.

    A box of chocolates doesn't give them the right to come to you if derogatory comments will make you feel worse, especially if you know this will happen.

    Look after yourself.
