it's just under a month until my 19th but i wanted to post this now.
i want to say the biggest thank-you to every single volunteer who gives up their time to help us. childline has been my safe place for a long time so it's quite emotional to know i can't use the service anymore come here anymore soon. so many phone calls, 1-2-1 chats and emails i made yet i was always comforted, supported and truly listened to which i'm am beyond thankful for. i'm glad we still have access to our lockers and i have so many useful emails i like to look back and read to remind myself things.
i hope to volunteer for childline myself one day to maybe give back some of the life saving support i received. i also want to go into child and/or mental health nursing at university next year because i so desperately want to help others too. of course i need to work on myself too but i have hope for the future.
i've been trying to use other services to help with my own transition from childline which is why i haven't used it as much recently but it's still hard to see it go.
i just can't express my gratitude enough. thank-you so, so much. i'm not very good with goodbyes, changes and when things come to an end but all i can say is thank-you.
