Over the last four years I have been on Heartbreakers, I've witnessed what this forum has done for women's wrestling. #GiveDivasAChance was a movement that was heavily influenced by OUR Heartbreakers community, and that has created the Women's Evolution into what we know today. Even though the storyline leading up to our first ever main event is lackluster and at the expense of so many other women, it's still surreal knowing that we saw women get the main event spotlight they deserve. Unfortunately for me, this will be the last Wrestlemania I watch and the last time I will be posting on this forum.
Without getting into too much detail because I already talked to admins about this, I have a lot of life commitments that are slowly starting to take over and make me lose interest in both wrestling and the community that I am part of. I am unable to consistently keep up with members, converse, socialize, and also do the same thing in the work that I do in everyday life. This is why I mysteriously just stopped the countdown; it was something that I thought I could do, but something I ultimately couldn't deliver on due to the time commitment needed. For wasting both your time and mine, I'm truly sorry. It was my last ditch effort to contribute something worthwhile, but I am consistently pressed for time and energy daily, leaving me exhausted and tired by the end of my day.
For those of you who don't really know me (valid considering we have so many new members): I was a closeted teenager when I first joined the forum. I am now an out and proud college student becoming more proud everyday. Through the interactions I had with so many members, I found the courage to both accept my sexuality and come out because of the support this forum gave me. Classic members of the forum know the shitshow my teenage years were especially considering I was so new to gay culture and my general ignorance of how the world operates. Heartbreakers was absolutely instrumental in my development as a person and for that I am extremely grateful.
HB Survivor, HB Podcast, HBAs, HBMania, HB Royal Rumble, the list goes on. Spending days and weeks on my computer interacting with you all have been some of the best times in my life, and I can go on about how diverse, deep, and influential our community truly is. But we would be here for a while and it's not that deep
For all of you new members: truly cherish what this community can bring you. We laugh, joke, drag, and fight a lot, but take a closer look and see what kind of a safe haven it is for all of us. We're all dragged down by the burdens of our modern life, but this forum provides a safe, inclusive, and fun environment to casually talk about what we're passionate about. Not everyone in the world can say that they're part of something like that, but it is right here. The track record and the longevity of this forum proves exactly why this place is so important and so successful.
Some acknowledgements are in order: @Mariah., @Shoaib., and @Jake have always kept the best interests of the forum in mind, and continue to devote part of their lives to make this forum work. Thank you three for continuing to keep this forum alive. You really are the lifeblood of this forum! @Rainbow Heart, @Captain Fox, @Michael Psyches, @Travy Massaro, and @Cooksie: thank you for participating and believing in the HB Podcast. That was literally our 4HW moment, and I'm so glad to see that you all are still active and part of the forum in your own way. The entire moderating staff as well (including @Ari M., @Dante., @Samier., and @Taryn) deserves praise for also being integral to our community's development and longevity. I'll call out @Travis too. You're such an aggy bitch and we both STILL don't like each other, but I acknowledge how much work you've done to put our forum in the spotlight in your own unique way. Continue giving Mariah a reason to keep this forum so she can raise her child properly! Finally, I would like to acknowledge every single person that I've interacted with whether it be participating in my countdowns, working together in a forum game, or just having a regular conversation in a thread.
I really didn't mean for this to be emotional or OTT, but I'm glad I get some closure on this matter. I will be leaving and relinquishing my duties as a moderator, but hopefully there's some time in the future for me to return /Nikki. Thank you all so much for the memories and laughs, and I hope this forum continues to thrive in the way that it should! Until our paths cross again, keep breaking hearts and breaking barriers, and hope that WWE will stop appropriating our movements. I love you all. xoxo
