Hyllning, I hope you know that we all love you, and we're going to lose a valuable member with you leaving.

Whenever I've seen you on the forums, you've been kind and helpful to everyone, and I know that everyone will agree with me.

If (No, when!) you do come back, you will be greeted fondly by everyone.

May everything that comes your way in life be positive,

PJ.

Who is hylning?

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Hyllning

I find it amusing how much everything here has been downvoted. If you all don't care about me, fine, I don't care about myself either. It doesn't give you a right to hate everyone that tries to cheer me up, they're trying to make the best out of the situation. I love Duolingo, I love my friends, acquaintances, and everyone who reads my posts, and even people who hate me. I have a far from perfect life, and Duolingo is there to fill that gap. My life really sucks, so much that I've considered doing something to myself twice. I'm only trying to have SOME enjoyment in my life, if you don't care about me, just block me, I don't care. It'll save both of us stress and anger. Please, if you don't think I should be acknowledged for leaving (I personally think I shouldn't be), just downvote my comments. Other people are just trying to cheer me up; if you were in something like I am, and a handful of friends cheer you up, I can guarantee you that I would smile and feel happy of the friends who care about you, I certainly would love that feeling.

Goodbye Hyllning, sorry you're leaving!

https://www.duolingo.com/MasterZsword

Why would you say that you don't care about yourself...? You're worth more than you think you do, and I guarantee that everyone here doesn't give you that treatment. Don't define yourself by the tribulations that you have experienced because none of that matters. It's all in the past. Rather, define yourself by resilience. No one has a perfect life; mine sure isn't and half of my soul, I would say, is lost (but, my life is FAR from bad. I'm quite blessed, actually...). I only say this because you stated that your life is horrible and that I have experienced my own share of hardships. I'm not sure if you will ever read this, but I really do wish the best for your future and enjoyment in your life. These words may be meaningless, but I'm glad I said them....!

Just being downvoted doesn't mean that you're not popular or are popular in a negative way. I am apparently popular, whether I like it or not, and I still get downvoted. In fact, someone seems to have made it their business in life to downvote every comment I make.

I totally agree with you Gena. And i am sure we are also in agreement that you Hyllning are so much more than popular. You are loved and admired and many also who find you and see you as inspirational .- for extremely good reasons.
I hope you continue to find the strength to choose to not play the popularity game, which is a very sad game to be bullied or tricked into playing.
Which i sense you know. This though means you do need to decide that some things some people say are totally a reflection of their perceptions and hurts, and have nothing at all to with you.
That there are people who say things that you need to choose have nothing at all to do with reality. They are to do with strange things that are happening in their minds. And that you need to choose at times to pull the most effective tool out of your internet communications tool bag - and you totally ignore the gibberish that they are spouting.
You choose instead to pull into our world of reality good things and things of worth to our world.

However only you have the power to make this choice. Only you can choose to weild this super power thar only you posses.

You are a strong and inspirational and immensely intelligent person. I hope you continue to choose to never throw your great powers away. You will continue to benifit from them through your life, if you choose to continue to develop them. And i will benifit, and our real world will. Benifit.

For very very very good reasons ..- never doubt how loved you are. And remember the advice , love yourself and love your neighbor with the same respect and kindness, to which you should show yourself.

Ps typed from a phone. Please excuse some bad spelling and formatting. I am hoping

ahem Daniel,
Sending you a hug.
Becoming a moderator is a complex and not straight forward process - I grant you that. ( as is also striving to live up to your own expectations, and also the review of others should you become one, what is needed in the mix in the eyes of hosts of this site ( of where we are guests) and there is also a time factor that is required to be considered. )
However, you are a most AMAZING person, of great good heart and intelligence.
One of the most important things in life is to choose to focus on - is learning to make a friend to yourself. For you are ever so beautiful !
And that beauty yearns to be appreciated.
If you learn how to appreciate your own beauty - and include in that the beauty of humbleness and respect of others, then you make your own beauty even more beautiful.
Life is not about being the most perfect or most beautiful or most ... anything. It is about striving to bring the best into reality. To recognize things that are important to you, things you value in your life, and striving to reach goals.
You are greatly valued by many. Including many people here.
One of the ways to respect the appreciation others have for you, is also to have a respect and appreciation of yourself. However this is only something you can choose to allow to happen. In doing this - should you decide to do this - you are giving back a reward also to those that respect you. As well as giving to yourself - that which yourself deserves.
I hope you can continue to choose to see how greatly you are valued by so many.
Your intelligence and kindness and your willingness to help others - is undeniable.

Only to add - how good it is to enjoy different things. That different things have the chance to open up new opportunities and understandings - that have the potential to enrich our lives in unexpected ways. Though you do need to allow your heart to be open to be able to see them.

Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo - estarás en mi corazón.

Hey Hyllning, it will be strange not having your kind and helpful influence around this summer, but I'm praying that what seems to be a difficult time in your life will in fact be a time of great personal growth and development. Keep learning as much as you possibly can. We'll be waiting with great anticipation for when you can spend more time in our little community this fall! This song is a little, well actually a lot, ridiculous, but I think it drives home the point well, that it's not so much the troubles in life, but how we respond to them that defines us.

I feel it'd be kind of repetitive to repost what I wrote to you here, so I'll just add to it:

There really aren't any words that can truly express how much you mean to the people here, because you are amazing in ways beyond explainable. Maybe you don't always realize that, but you are amazing, and don't let anyone (especially yourself) tell you otherwise!

We'll miss you more than you can imagine, and will be eagerly awaiting your return (seriously, I will throw a party when you come back, complete with sweets from Honeydukes ;).

P.S. - You do look like Peeta. Not exactly, but similar. You could be Peeta's cousin, whether or not you admit it. :P
