The good: I found lc while recovering from the sjw life - I would literally wake up in a cold sweat after a nightmare wherein I'd misspeak on twitter and get dogpiled/abandoned by everyone who knew me (yes I realize there are some underlying mental health issues in there, but anyway) - so it became a really relaxing place for me. I've become much more chill after reading so many opinions different from mine and instead of immediately thinking "this person is being malicious" I found myself thinking "this person is living a life different from mine, let it teach you something and then let it go" and I've found that so freeing. I think that's one good thing about anonymous forums, tbh (I was never a channer); over here it does not fucking matter if I post something and someone loudly disagrees, they literally do not know who I am.
The bad: I've slowly come to realize that I've been using lc to replace friendship. i.e., in the evening after work I come here to "hang out", log whatever passing thought I wish, respond to anons and laugh with them, etc. The pandemic hasn't been great as I've slowly drifted away from my irl friends, so rather than report to them what I think of so-and-so event or celeb, I go here. I think that's enough of a sign that I need to limit my time here, but since I have nothing healthier to replace it with atm I don't really know what to do.>>782563
Big hugs, nonny
. I think we're in practically the same boat and hope we both get the hell outta here in the ways that we wish!
