Taking a (short) break from the forums and DNL prime

Post by The Wisp on Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:04 pm

Hi all, I just want to let you all know that I'll be taking a short break from the forums. I'm mostly posting this to commit myself to doing this Laughing

I've been finding that the background negativity about men and men in relationship with women in general on here and on DNL have been getting to me more lately. I'm finding my fears and insecurities about women and relationships being reinforced, and lately it has been making me feel generally down on myself and depressed. I don't know if the negativity has increased or not, but for whatever reason I'm feeling more sensitized to it and more likely to take it personally when I shouldn't. None of this has been directed at me, and I don't think any individual posters are particularly responsible for this and I don't hold ill will towards anybody specifically. I also don't think these discussions should stop happening, I just can't deal with such discussions and topics right now.

Also, I have found DNL and the forum to be the primary things distracting me from my studies lately, and I want to see if I can focus more if I take a break.

I won't be gone long, just two weeks, maybe a little longer. I just need a break.

See you all on the other side!

Sorry to hear you've been stressed lately, but it's good to take a break when you're feeling overburdened. We'll miss you while you're away!

Will miss seeing you around for a while, but take care of yourself! Good on you for knowing you need a break and giving yourself one. And study hard. Laughing

Aw, I missed you guys too! I actually had to use site blocking software on my phone and laptop to keep me away Razz

I did need the break though, I think it has helped me get out of some ruts in my thinking and generally feel less deep anxiety about dating and gender. I also feel like it helped me start to gain some new insights into myself as it pertains to socializing, dating, relationships, and sex. I may share some of that later.

I'm glad to be back!
