Welcome Home.

Melo was built as a place for self expression, anonymity, and ultimate personal freedom.

It's intended as a place on the web where you can say whatever you want, without any fear of repercussion, judgement, backlash, or embarrassment.

You can be yourself here.

Enjoy.

Thirteen years here in November, and I keep coming back. You were doing something right when you created this baby.

Re: Welcome Home.

Thanks for keeping Melo up and running! I've loved being here since my first day. It's one place that, even if I take a break every once in a while, I always come back to. <3

Re: public

If you have Spotify send me your username and I'll share my "End of the World" playlist with you. For me it's a pretty good "purge and reboot" soundtrack. :)

Re: public

Well... I kinda trimmed my beard off. I can barely recognize myself in the mirror it looks so different. And for music, music has been hard because so much reminds me of this and that, but the two that felt right were NIN's 'Last' and Harvey Danger's "Where have all the merrymakers gone?" mainly flagpole sitta, but the whole album is rather enjoyable. I plan to branch out and try to utilize your other advice in the next week though.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Re: public

Thanks, Sara. That's a really good list, I'll try to start incorporating it. :)

You know what's funny with melo, is that I started it 10 years ago alone and heartbroken in the desert. And here I am now in pretty much the same place, right back where I started. I'm glad you kept melo around, it's one of the only things I have right now.

Re: public

yes, but you should get the one from my profile picture, because it's better than my real face.

Would you be OK with me getting your face tattooed on my body?

ALL HAIL SARA!

Re: public

Step 1: Make a "starting over" playlist. I recommend Drake "Started from the bottom" and Coldplay "The Scientist". Add your own and let me know what they are.

Step 2: Get new hair, and probably a whole new wardrobe. When you look different you feel different.

Step 3: Purge. Throw a bunch of shit away.

Step 4: Shop. Buy some new shit. I usually opt for shoes and notebooks. And maybe some digital accessories I think will make me productive.

Step 5: Do new stuff. Join a club, or go to a meetup, or take a class. It's called "pattern interruption". When you feel new and you learn new stuff you start to become new, which helps start something over.

That's the best I can do right now without knowing exactly what you're starting over.

Re: public

Hey Sara, you're good with advice.

What do you do when you have start all over? Where do you even begin? :(

Thanks.

Re: public

Hi Sara. You may not know me, or maybe you may remember my user name. I just wanted to thank you for making melo, for keeping it up so I can read the years of writing I have put here. The time I spent here, and the time I sometimes still spend here mean a lot to me. Reading about my past is possible because of you.
Thanks a lot.

Re: public

I really wish this is a work of fiction. I can never imagine the pain if it isn't. You have given a place of hope for so many on the edge of suicide, me being one of them on more than one occasion. More than I could ever care to admit to myself. You could help another one pull back from the edge. You've pulled me back from the edge before. I hope you can find a path to help another on the edge. The worst thing is being too afraid to lock someone in a padded room only to see them on the table in a morgue. I have scars on my wrists. Scars that could have been a carving on a tombstone. Everything Melo has given me has kept them from being carved in something more permanent than flesh. Never let another fade away because you couldn't do all that you could have done.

Re: public

I've been there.. in a different way. Just be patient.
Be patient and be the sane one.
When they fuck up and make the wrong move, you fucking strike.
And have a lawyer when you do it.
Document everything. Everything.
But I think in the end, you will get the peace that you and those babies need. <3
Be strong lady, because you're among the best.
