We have decided to close this thread to encourage members to create their own thread where they share songs that they think are sad. We have also moved this from the Movies, Music and TV forum to the Depressing Music and Movies forum, as the topic was sad songs rather than inspiring songs.
Don't worry. You have not done anything wrong, it is just that the purpose of this particular forum is that members can share depressive or sad music they like or find soothing with each other. We feel that it is better to have a whole forum where members share these things than just one thread, for a couple of reasons.
By creating your own threads, other members can give direct feedback to individual members, and more members can feel supported. Also, seeing a lot of threads about music instead of just one may make more members feel better as well. Members are more likely to read individual threads if they are about one member or issue, and they have more threads they can respond to. Members may spend more time reading in this forum if there are a lot of different threads, and they may more easily get inspired to post something themselves. In addition, the members posting the threads may get more positive feedback from other members about what they posted, which makes it likely that they will continue to post threads of their own.
It is especially important to us that new members find support here. It is common for new members to post in discussion/question threads the first thing they do. Then their posts may go unnoticed, and they may feel ignored and end up leaving the forum.
This is why we have guidelines about creating your own thread when you seek support or want to share something personal about yourself. This way all members feel more noticed and appreciated, because other members will see what they post about and give them personal feedback.
As always, you are very welcome to tell someone that you can relate to them in their threads, as long as you do not take the focus off the original poster and topic. If a thread starts focusing on other topics or members without the original poster being supported by this and participating in the conversation, it can make them feel bad.
Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by posting in the Contact Moderators
I hope you all find support here on TTL, and I hope you keep sharing music that helps you.
