you have to put yourself first. If it affects you negatively, then scale way down or leave it completely. big hugs <3

Simply, unextravagantly put, Tumblr’s turning out not to be my cup of tea.
It’s entertaining. It’s a nice way to communicate. In fact, everyone I’ve “met” on this site has been incredibly kind to me. However, Tumblr seems to bring out the worst in people. I’m not saying I’m not partially guilty myself, and I’m not saying you’re a terrible person if you’re a part of Tumblr. On the contrary, I’m saying Tumblr brings out that petty part of people, because Tumblr is, itself, fairly petty. These are all things present in our daily lives, but not pervasive. They’re pervasive because 30 or 100 people updating you 2-3 times an hour on their life is bound to go there.
And when I shut myself off from that, I slowly get pieces of myself back. Like my patience and my tolerance and my enjoyment of my life. And I really need that when it comes to “real life.” And I miss that, too.
