Taking a break from the forums

I'm taking a break from these forums. I'm not sure how long I will need. I'm just letting you know in case you are wondering where I am.

 

I'm not sure if these forums are right for me. I'm not sure if an online environment is right for me. Maybe I need to connect with people in real life.

 

I don't feel like I fit in here. I can't relate to most of the people here. It makes me feel alone. I don't like the way the forums are run. It feels too oppressive for me. It doesn't feel like an online forum. It feels like a mental health program that is run by the government. 

 

Okay, that's all I'm going to say.

Thinking of you @Arizona It's good that you are making conscious decisions about what is right for you.

Re: Taking a break from the forums

Hi again @Arizona I think a lot of us feel at times that we don't fit in but that is infact once thing that actually makes us all fit in here. I acknowledge though that you feel this way here too and whilst I cannot change your feelings on that I would say that you contribute a lot here and it seems a space you can write to get things out. I do have a question for you - and you do not have to answer - what is it that you would like to get for yourself from the forum? Is it connection, a place to unload, a place to feel safe, a place to find yourself....

Hi @Zoe7 

 

I tried replying but it was too difficult for me. I'm sorry.

 

I just need to take a break.
