Don't give up Dan!!
« on: March 18, 2007, 07:56:00 PM »
Don't Give Up

in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought I could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up
we don't need much of anything
don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong


rest your head
you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up
please don't give up

'got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that river's flowing
that river's flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don't give up
'cause you have friends
don't give up
you're not the only one
don't give up
no reason to be ashamed
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up now
we're proud of who you are
don't give up
you know it's never been easy
don't give up
'cause I believe there's the a place
there's a place where we belong

Dan is absolutely not OK. He is utterly depressed. And ready to give up.
He even pushes me away, the one he loves the most.
And I am afraid he might hurt himself.
Depression has suddenly taken over Dan's personality.
I know the system all too well. Steel doors all around him.

I only tried to give some loving. I wished there were something I could do.

Dan knows he has a lot of friends here. Let's hope his heart defrosts again.

Let's leave him in peace.

Hermie,

Just so you all know I am not depressed or ready to give up. & I have no plans of hurting myself.

Herman, let me make this clear with you. I do not want a relationship with you anymore & I want you to stop emailing me, leaving messages on my voice mail & calling Dean.

I  AM DONE! Ya got that?

They can go ahead and ban me now because I really don't give a flying fuck.

I just meant that there are 2 or 3 other sappy love song posts from Hermie to Dan all started at the same time.  If there are more silly FUCK YOU's and stuff to toss out there for all of us to see, they will likely go there.

I'm not trying to take part in any brawl with all this- really.  I don't want to be seen as flaming anything.  It just doesn't sit well with me when FU's get hurled like that.  And that goes double for ones hurled at Jonathan- I happen to hold the guy in pretty high esteem.

I agree Teresa..

Dan has been through this before and "Sappy Love songs" or not Hermie is hurting, so why don't we just leave them to heal in their own way and their own time..they don't need any smart comments from anyone right now..thank you.

Agreed - but airing one's public breakup/breakdown on a public forum is in such rotten taste that, frankly, I feel less inclined to display sensitivity beyond the "report to the moderator" button.

I would be thrilled to give situations like this privacy... but that's what phone calls and PMs and email is for, not an online discussion forum.  Sorry, but my disgust with this is palpable.

Why these threads were not locked LONG ago is beyond me. It was flamebait from the very start.

Gotta agree completely with JK here. When you drag your stuff out in public, people are going to comment. If you don't like that, take it indoors.

All in all most of us have been pretty well behaved.

Indeed.  The choice was made to have this public, which is rather rude to the rest of the forum if you ask me.  It's really a simple matter of etiquette.

Hi JK/Matty

I agree, this should not have been brought into the forum...and I also agree this thread should have been locked, but I'm sure Hermie must have had his reasons for doing this, even though making it public was not one of his wisest decisions to date.

Matty I don't think anyone was out of order with their posts or comments, I never meant to imply that,  I was simply asking for it to end now before it got out of hand...that's all.

Dear All,

Dan has been quite clear and specific in his request.

I'm going to trust that Hermie will get the support he needs from friends elsewhere rather than in this thread. And that Dan will do the same if he wants to.

With that in mind and the comments others have made I'm going to lock this thread now.
