In the past week two men I like and who’s company I enjoy very much have withdrawn entirely from social media, both essentially citing what I think amount to the same reasons, and I’m fairly sure we could all list them.

Negativity, rejection, egos, darkness, and comparing ourselves to ideals which may not even exist is real life.

I’m a little sore inside right now, it is they and people like them who are real shining lights for me, good values and actual friendship.

The thing is I can relate completely, I’ve done this myself, I’ve withdrawn completely, I’ve retreated into myself and if anything it fuelled the darkness even more, albeit without actually breaking yet more friendships. All I can do is tell them and give them time.
