Great thread Dyl! I'm super glad this thread now exists, and I can definitely see it helping people out! 😄

Just to share my experiences: I was really severely bullied in primary/secondary school, to the point that simply getting up out of bed, knowing I'd have to go to endure relentless comments from every direction, was the biggest struggle. I used to come back from school, acting like everything was okay to my parents, only to go in my room and just sulk to myself- probably one of the most destructive things I could have done, which was bottling things up. It wasn't until I told my problems to my parents and online friends at the time (which didn't go down without a river of emotions! It's perfectly okay to cry- it doesn't make you any less than who you are!), that things started to get a lot better! Bear in mind, it wasn't an instantaneous change, and still took years, but things slowly started to look up. Even when I went to Sixth Form, I was still receiving comments, but definitely at a lower scale.

Something that really helped me get through it all is the form of escapism that I got from playing on Minecraft servers (I probably would have played other games if I didn't have the worst laptop in existence xd). Whether it was a server set up by one of my friends, or on CubeCraft, I gravitated towards online communities. I met people that were perfectly okay with me venting to them for 30 minutes at a time so I can feel better or people who would play games with me just to distract myself from the crappy reality I had. And that really went a long way. I met these people on this server, most of whom I still talk to now, and I genuinely feel like I'm forever indebted to the CubeCraft community, purely because I am not sure where I'd be without everyone here.

I had put a lot of trust in the community around these times. I had made a thread titled "Real life help." back in February 2015, where I talked about what sort of comments I'd get from people in school, and how I can get help for it. It feels surreal reading this thread 6 years later, but to me, it proves that things eventually do end up getting better. If that's in a weeks time, a months time, or longer, it sometimes takes time for something to change. In that time, I started to appreciate the smaller things in life- be it listening to music at full volume when I'm walking home, immersing myself in my studies and getting involved in more creative arts like theatre. In those times, I met friends in real life (for once!) that helped me distract myself from reality to the point that I had paid little attention to it. Definitely feel like they helped a bunch as well, which I am so thankful for. :heart:

This thread and reading the responses really shows how unified our community is, it's really heartwarming to read that we're all here for each other, and I'm no exception. I'm always around to listen to you talk about what's happening in your life, and though I might not be able to help as much as I can, I can try, and just be a listening ear, as I know sometimes that's all you need 💙 My Discord is Younisco#0001, shoot me a friend request or a DM (my DMs are open :D ) and I'd be more than happy to listen to you. Stay safe, and keep being you. 💕

I see this thread is quite inactive now, but I still wanted to share my story, or actually the story of the people around me!

Allright, so a little over a year ago, I randomly got a message from a friend in a snapchatgroup that he couldn't feel his body anymore... Turned out he overdosed on a lot of unhealthy medicines that night... But for some reason it seemed like a lot of my friends had already given up on him, (I re-joined that friend group a few months prior) but me and a friend or 2 realised how serious the situation actually was!
I couldn't sleep that night; I was scared I would hear a message in school about how one of my friends took his own life... Luckily that never happened, and I also realised I dont ever want to hear something like this, so from that day forward, Ive decided to try and help anyone that comes to me with their mental issues.

A few months later I found my way back to CubeCraft and met a lot of great people. Then me and @GladiusYugen decided to set up a channel in our Discord community, hidden from most regular users, where mental issues would be discussed. This channel really opened my eyes about how many teens these days walk around with feelings of depression, anxiety, stories about bullying, not feeling accepted and fears.
This experience made me decide something should change. So, I started to look around, seeking for platforms that offer full safety for their users, where the main focus is mental health. But I concluded that this actually does not really exist. So, I went to my dad, and together we decided to start building it ourselves, and now we are about 7 months in the process of building, and we are close to releasing the first alpha test to our testers.

So yeah, this is the perfect example of the butterfly effect: I decided to react to that snapchat message that evening, and now I am developing my own app!

I also wanted to quickly add something for everyone troubling in their life:
Youre amazing, these are hard times, you will get through it! I have seen people on the edge of life, nearly ending it all, climbing out of the pit, and rising to an unbelievable level... I know you can do that too!

If you ever want to vent, or just simply talk, feel free to send me a message! :)

Hi everyone! View attachment 186841

Today we are here to talk about something very important, mental health.

Many of us struggle with mental health issues on a day-to-day basis, this can affect daily living, relationships, and physical health. Maybe you have experienced this yourself or you have seen others struggle. The purpose of this thread is to build awareness and allow you to open up.

Methods & Tips View attachment 186839

Here are some coping mechanisms and information that may help you. Even if it's just one thing that stands out and helps change your routine and attitude for the better, that is already a push in the right direction!

▼ 5 Tips of Wellbeing
This is a method that has worked for me:

Connect
• Stay in touch with people - Discord, friends, family, parents.
• Get involved more in your hobbies and interests by joining more communities related to them.
• Join in on more events or Discord calls with your friends, this can lead to making new friends!

Keep learning
• Watching YouTube and documentaries can be very educational.
• Learn new skills, challenging yourself stimulates your brain in a positive way when you accomplish something.

Be active
• Try to take on a new hobby, this can become your new daily activity and gives you something to do. (I got back into Figure skating! ⛸️)
• Going outside can transform your mood. Just going for a walk is more than enough but try to visit a happy place, this could be a park, beach or maybe even a library.

Take notice
•
Appreciate the little things. It's Important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.
• Essentially learn to appreciate all the great things you have around you. This could be a support group. For me, this is my online friends.

Give
•
Random acts of kindness towards others can make you feel more positive like you made a difference on other people and put a little good into the world too.

Helpful links/sites:
•
Mental health contact lines
• https://www.mind.org.uk
• Player Safety Guidelines

If you have any coping mechanisms or information that has helped you then please do not be afraid to share them below the thread, we are all just trying to support each other!

You are not alone View attachment 186832

I want to invite you all to share your own experiences with mental health whether that be your own or from supporting others around you, no matter how big or small.

There are a few people that wanted to open up about their own experiences, you can read about them right below this thread, we hope this might help you open up yourself and make you feel less alone. Together we can fight the stigma to help normalise opening up about something that everyone will experience in their life.

It gets better View attachment 186838

I hope this thread reaches many people and allows them to open up and find mental clarity.

I want to let all of you know that things do get better, always but it will take time, it's important to stay positive and constantly work towards your goals but if you can't then that is okay and I'm still proud of you! Just getting out of bed in the morning is more than good enough, try to take each day little by little.

Some of you don't know me but I have personal experiences with mental health too and I want to offer support to as many of you as I can, my DMs are always open whether it be Discord or the forums. Don't be afraid to reach out to me, I'd love to get to know you guys better, I am always up for a chat, call, or game. I'm here for you! View attachment 186834
this is really helpful and even though this is like a gaming thing it is very helpful everywhere thank you

The backyard.
I'm reading everyone his story and this is heartwarming. I will be sharing my story too now. :)

When I was younger I always got rejected by classmater, outstanders, and just pretty much everyone. I tried getting to know people but I couldn't because I was different than other people and it was really hard for me to find new friends. I luckily had a couple of friends, who are still my friend now (9-11 years now).

My mom and dad were divorced and my dad went back to Algeria where my whole family comes from expect of me and my 2 sisters. Because he lived there I only got to see him about 1-2x a year. Because of that it didn't even feel as my dad but some man I haven't seen in a while. My mom got a call when I was 9 and she was shocked on the phone and was like "Oh my god, I'm so sorry to hear that" and me as a 9 year old was really curious for one of the first times ever because it sounded really intense.

The same day after school I went to my aunt just staying their because my mother had to do something. My uncle sat next to me and he said "Ahmed, I have to tell you something." I said "Ye okay spit it out." And he told me that my father had past away. I didn't know what to say because I really didn't know what feelings I had at that moment. I kept everything inside me and I didn't say a word for the whole day.

After that event I have always kept my feelings for myself. I have always felt bad, stupid, and insecure about a lot but I have never talked to somebody about it. I started skipping school and didn't even care about nobody anymore, expect those friends I had. I became a problem kid and nobody asked me why. They assumed I was always like that, which I really wasn't. I never got accepted by anyone back then and sometime's I don't now.

But I have learnt to talk about feelings and help people who struggle with the same problem. Everyone that's going thru a rough time, feel free to dm me on discord Colleeee#0001 :)! I love you guys, stay safe! :)

I want to talk about my mental health. Things have been resolved now since but it got very bad here.

I had a false player report filed against me, I had my name slandered so much by people I trusted, I consulted Cubecraft admins but they did minimal to help, the false player report was filed against me and spread around that I was a child predator, there was little to no proof to back this up other than their testimony and a testimony from someone who wasnt there at the time that the conversation in a voice chat occured that was twisted to become a lie. I am still getting messages about it today, I just want to play the game without this stuff killing the fun.

Thats just my problems within this community, thought some good things came of it and I think I want to tell this to the community.

I am officially coming out to the community as gay, I have told a few people and had a load of support for it! I think its time I talk to people about it now, I was reluctant before not because of shame but because I don't want people to be treading on egg-shells around me and be worried about offending me or anything, hope ya proud of me @Younisco ;)

Yo... You might not know me, but I am proud of you for saying this!
I recently had a friend IRL come out to me and I have seen his struggles with my own eyes...
I wish you a lot of strength in the future, cuz sadly some people still cant accept that not everyone is "straight" these days... Keep in mind that youre stronger than those people tho!

I am sorry to hear about that false player report, It is sad to see that stuff like that happens, and it makes me wonder how many more false things like that exist!

Oh and mate, if you want it or not, you got a friend in me now :)

By far, in my eyes, the best thread ever created on the forums. Even better than CCN Memes *runs*. We all are different people on this planet with our problems. And no matter how hard life will be, there always comes a time when it's finally your turn to shine. People always say that they understand you. But you know what? They don't. No one can fully understand you other than yourself. You all are gifted with the power to get back on your feet. Even when you fell for like 100 times. You are stronger than you think.

I've read all of your stories and some of them kinda hurt me. But look at you now. You overcome most of your problems or are fighting really hard. I'm proud of you. Don't ever give up. You all can do it. I will write my story someday here. Smile and someday the world will smile back at you.

<3

I forgot to post a quote yesterday, so today I'll post two!
