Recent I’ve been spending a lot of time in online lefty spaces that I used to frequent and it’s been, in all honesty, pretty jarring. I haven’t frequently used Discord (the main platform that these spaces are on) since August 2018 and it really feels like Groundhog Day in these spaces. The same discussions come up every day, the same culture of the constant need for validation, the same personal attacks etc. and it gives me such a headache, metaphorically and literally. Outside of long lasting friendships on these spaces, it’s all a huge shit show to go back to and it almost makes me regret it (although I have managed to convince one of the communities I frequented to make the move to Matrix which was definitely a positive).
Non-personal posts will be here soon, just spouting shit in an exhausted state.
