"I don't think 'goodbye' should be the last thing you ever say to someone. 'I love you', maybe, or 'thank you'. But not 'goodbye'."
Thank you ♥
I, HopesNDreams, have left Scratch. Forever.
I don't quite know how to explain this, but… God has been telling me for MONTHS that I'm not supposed to be on Scratch. This is where I was meant to be, but now I'm supposed to be somewhere else. Does that make sense?
No, I won't come back. I absolutely do not intend to ruin my freshman year of high school, so by the time I have my chromebook back, it'll be too late. I'll be busy enough in high school, I won't have time for Scratch. And I just can't see myself returning as an adult. So for most of you, this really is goodbye.
But I must ask:
Have I hurt you?
If I have ever, ever hurt you (especially if I hurt you by leaving), I need to know. Don't worry, such things can't offend me anymore. But it is INCREDIBLY important that I know what I have done wrong, so that I can make things right with the time I have left… so that I can leave with a clear conscience.
Or maybe you're not hurt. You're happy, just because it's better to be happy than to be sad. You may be surprised to have that power; I was, when I first discovered it.
Maybe I had a mission here on Scratch. If God is telling me to leave, it means whatever I was mission I had here, is complete. So let us rejoice! I have completed a mission! And now that one mission is complete, I must go off and do the next one!
I need you to smile.
I was here to make you happy.
I think I succeeded.
If you are upset now, it ruins everything we've built.
Crying won't make me come back. It'll just mean I failed.
