Oh man, just saw this post now, man. You do you, post when you want.

Just know that this place is ALOT less negative and alot more positive than that other place we used to post on. I think that's a good thing for everyone, tbh. It's also lot more relaxed than the other place. Alot less arguing, fighting, and constant nit-picking. I think you'd like it alot, tbh. But post as much or as little as you want, man. This isn't your (or anyone's) job. It's not homework. Come and go as you please, but just know in my time here, this place is ALOT more relaxed and less negative than the other forum. It's honestly soothing compared to the other place, my friend. You'd like it. Stay strong. :)
I have noticed that already. Even in the off-topic sections. Posting in the other place felt like a literal chore, always felt like someone was just waiting to pounce on your posts and try to ruin the general vibe. Even the fan threads weren't safe from it at times. It's no wonder I got exhausted really, but discussing WWE seems to burn me out in general. I think posting little tidbits here and there is probably where I feel comfortable. Probably will just post when the bigger shows happen, as I find trying to keep up and discuss weekly a bit taxing and it stresses me out. Maybe others feel like that, too.

Maybe you're burned out at your job? I know when I'm overworked I have a tendency to bring that mentality into other parts of life when its not warranted.
I mean, I always am. Working is really hard for me because I struggle to do even basic tasks or talk to people. Just how it is. I somehow manage to get through it everyday, and have become number to it, but I tell you I have like no energy most days to even do entertainment stuff. It's likely why posting can feel so hard for me. Plus feeling like I'll be judged.

Completely understandable especially for anyone who posted on the other place for years like we did. Post whenever you feel like it I think is the best thing anyone can tell you. Just know that no one is judging your posts or looking to pounce on posts and nit-pick like in the past. This is a much better place, thankfully. Much better atmosphere. No pressure here.

I'm going to be real with you guys. I'm not sure if I'll be able to post on forums like these anymore. Today is the lowest I've felt in three months. For some reason whenever I interact with any sort of social media, forum or anything similar my mental health seems to deteriorate so fast. I wish I could put it in to words easier, but when I post, I imagine I'm in a crowded room and people are watching everything I say. With that comes a lot of other issues such as increased heart rate, nerves and just a general feeling of anxiety and depression which I hate to feel. I also take other people's opinions on things to heart really easily, and the slightest comment can set me off and down a spiral of just negative thoughts & sadness.

I think there's some people that aren't meant to be on social media/forums and I'm probably one of them. It's been a lot of trying to convince myself I'm okay to post with extended breaks from places like these and even posting less, and nothing seems to work. I just can't do it. I had to delete Twitter & Facebook because of how it made me feel and obsessive thoughts, and I think I need to accept forums need to go too. Real life is hard enough as it is just getting myself out more and I've been making real progress with that, but it's so difficult. I just wish I could explain it better. Last night felt great for a little while, but then it hit me all this morning and I was right back to those horrible feelings again.

Sorry to make a post like this, not trying to make this some sort of therapy session but I just hope I can maybe raise awareness to this sort of stuff and also make you understand me as a person better.
No need to apologize about making the post. I know how you feel I’ve dealt with kind of stuff before and I know that it’s no picnic. We’re all here for you whenever you feel the need to talk and get things off your chest.

It's not you, that place is run by a bunch of assholes, they banned me for no reason whatsoever. I went on the site only to be greeted by the following message: "You have been banned for the following reason: Bye....."

People on this site already been better than the real life counsellor I had for months.



Appreciate the love guys. Sometimes it feels like the whole world is against you, and then you find places like this and people that actually care, even though they don't need to. Might be a small thing, but it has made me so much more ready for this week and having to face people. Not sure how active I'll be, but it's nice to not feel pressured and like I can drop in anytime. Genuine thanks from the bottom of my heart. :cozy Getting too sappy now *leaves*
