I just got this in my inbox. I took a picture so I could save it forever. Here was my response.
Wow. This is so unexpected. I know I should say “you’re welcome” but I don’t think you realize how much it means that you took the time out of your day to message me. I never realized how much I impacted both of your lives. It’s a very rewarding feeling and I’m in shock. I never forgot about her or that post; I was actually thinking about it the other day. I saw her post and I realized she needed help and comfort so I reblogged it and sent loads of messages pleading with her not to do it and asking others to do the same. I know we stopped her but I never thought of it as saving her. It just seemed like the right thing to do.
Now it is my turn to thank you. No one has ever made me feel so good and proud of myself as you have. In a mere paragraph, you have made me feel better about myself than anyone else has in a long time. I am so glad I was able to help, even though I didn’t realize the extent until now. I’m glad Ava has someone like you in her life - someone who is obviously enamored about her and cares for her as deeply as you. She is a lucky girl. I wish you two the best.
