I feel like I am going insane. Every time I open Tumblr I read so many horrible things and it makes me feel awful. I am getting so stressed and miserable about things I don’t even fully understand and I am sick of reading so many emotional, all-caps rants by people to try and figure out what’s going on.
I know it’s not the right thing to do, but right now I just need to ignore it all and try to calm down. Tumblr is slowly convincing me this world is an absolutely terrible place and it’s making me lose the motivation to bother getting up every day.
I know how important some of the issues on here are, and how trivial most of what I reblog is, but I come here to unwind. That is the reason I made an account, to lose myself in my interests with like minded people. It has become a place where everything you post can potentially come back to slap you in the face and I find myself constantly worrying about whether what I post or reblog will upset people.
People often talk about what a great place Tumblr is, saying that everyone is welcome and you can be yourself, but you get shot down just as often for being yourself here as you do anywhere else. There is so much hypocrisy. Everyone is so opinionated and judgemental. I have seen posts preaching peaceful messages where people have reblogged adding comments stating that you don’t belong here if you disagree. I just can’t deal with it all any more.
This website is not the fun and interesting place it used to be.
I’m going to log out now and hopefully not log back in for a long time. If anyone wants to contact me I’ll still be on Twitter:
