Default Taking My Leave…

This is not a suicide post, but an explanation for why I don't plan on posting on these forums anymore.

It really comes down to the fact that when I've made posts recently, I've been too afraid to read any replies. This is supposed to be a safe site, but my anxious mind still manages to turn it into a dangerous place. A few days ago, I once again made a post and was then too scared to read any replies, so if anybody was wondering why I never left a "Thank You" to their posts, it's because I did not and can not read them. And really, if I'm not brave enough to read the replies, why post at all?

I'll continue living, and maybe one day I'll come back, but that remains to be seen. I wish the members of this site well, but sadly I currently don't feel safe even here. And so, on the New Year's Eve of 2018, I take my leave.

I've been in this situation too, where I've created threads and didn't think them worthy of responses- so when I saw one, either ignored it, or replied with a general thanks for the reply

getting better at it though

I hope you have a nice 2019 and good luck in what ever you do.

it would be nice if you decided to stay, but I get it, I really do.

being anxious about reading/ posting isn't a nice feeling

I feel like I don't get many replies on mine. I know that feeling of when you post something and get replies. I feel "butterflies" when I know I got replies. I would say that whenever I get replies on here about 99% of them are OK or good. There had been some that were not. By far this place has been the best for replies. It seems like all of the others I've been on have been horrible.

People can be so mean and it's hard to not take it personally. I think it's best not to because the ones who are mean probably have all kinds of problems for themselves and take it out on others. It's that way in real life, too.

I hope you will come back.

It can still be helpful to write things even if you don't want to read the replies. Then someday you might want to and be happy to read them.
