tired: I’m upset at discourse
wired: I’m upset at discourse but I understand that the reasons I feel defensive are due to my own issues and not the discourser’s. I will re-examine my behavior so that what these feelings reveal about me doesn’t affect others in a way that could hurt them
inspired: all of wired plus starting to associate heavily the defensiveness from discourse with how bad I feel reading feeds, so I decide to remove my online presence to safeguard my mental health
I’m tired of parasociality, of desiring/being hurt by social dynamics, and of feeds generally.
