I'm thinking it might be good to depend less on this site when I recover

Idk. I have mixed feelings about this site personally and that is just due to the way I am.

I sometimes wonder if I’d be doing more if I never knew about this website.

But then again, I learnt things on here too which is good.

And also I see how there’s so many REAL ones of us. So I feel sort of less alone.

How do you all feel about this site?

I think if I was on this site for life then I’d get more attached to it than I want to.

I don’t want that to happen.

I have to remember that I have an actual IRL to actually focus on

It doesn’t have to be all or nothing either. Sometimes I visit this site more and sometimes I visit this site less, depending on my mood and what else I have going on on that particular day.

In other words:
You don’t have to completely cut it off to move on in your real life…but there is no need to be on it constantly either.

I just feel like I get more attached to people than they do to me. On this forum.

And it is not exactly fun, if it was like that for life.unless I can change my outlook on the way I relate to people here.

I’d rather just disappear at some point.

When I’m more able to do things in life.

The thing is I don’t know if I’m capable of leaving this site though I’ve tried so many times.

So well see. This is more a discussion thread about pros and cons of the forum as opposed to a leaving announcement. So I hope it doesn’t get locked.

You’ve helped a lot of people. Try to remember that! But yeah I hear you, it’s hard not to feel warm toward some people sometimes when they put so much into their posts.

If you left you’d be recalled fondly! I try to tell myself that too!

Thanks Happy2!

Yes I love this forum. I know I do cos when I first came on here I was feeling like wow but over a long time now I just feel like something doesn’t feel right to me, internally. And consequently externally.
It is no one’s fault though.

It is just me and how I am.

You’re one of the popular ones here, but depending too much on the site can’t be good either. Just take a few days off and catch up with your favourite series. :slight_smile:

I hear you and I feel weird in retrospect for sharing a pic of the baby in the fam(it was in light of Covid-19)… but I’m craning my neck mentally as though that was a mistake… and if it ever haunted us somehow, I’d never be able to explain why I made that decision… But I do know what you are going through!

Lol I’m one of the annoying ones who talks about food all the time. I get that this must be annoying. I asked my brother and he was like, yea it’s annoying actually.

But yea I will see how it goes and I do think you are all amazing and strong people too.

i hope you will stay for long time still… we would really miss you. But i can understand your thoughts about it like how it could hold you back from real life things to do…

I just get the balance all wrong. Too attached to a forum and neglecting real life.
I would really miss the forum too if I stopped reading it at least at first I would. It is a big decision to make after being on here for 3 years. But like I said it is just thoughts for now no concrete decisions.

Do you feel addicted to the forum, like you’re not doing the things you would normally do if you weren’t on it?
