    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    It can be hard for me to stay emotionally present. I have a tendency to disconnect emotionally when out with others. I feel exhausted from trying to be present and mindful.
    "My comrades and my beloved, upon your way you shall meet men with hoofs; give them your wings. And men with horns; give them wreaths of laurel. And men with claws; give them petals for fingers. And men with forked tongues; give them honey words." --Kahlil Gibran, The Garden of The Prophet

I loved this place and dedicated a lot of my energy and focus and affection to it. But eventually things changed. While I lamented the change, I couldn't eventually deny it and redirecting myself elsewhere in life.

    I guess people eventually change, and groups change, and situations change; and you enjoy something for as long as it lasts, and then when it naturally starts to end, you let it go versus trying too hard to keep it on life support. If we're fortunate, we find some people who change in similar ways as we do and so we all can stay together to some degree; but sometimes things just ebb and one can't live in the past.
    I understand your pain.

Some weird experiences in Vent, plus the way the forum exploded when the new rules were announced, contributed to that. Innocence was bliss, I suppose...

    Now I have a much firmer set of boundaries, and I no longer try to be everyone's friend here. I build up my various cliques and am happy with them. No idea how long that will last.
    I can relate.

    Believe it or not, @phobik, being a mod is a big help with establishing those boundaries. Now I can see this forum as more of a professional endeavor than a social one. It gives me even more of an excuse not to be everyone's friend.
    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    But maybe we can discover some things anew.
    I don't know.
    it's worth a try.

    Otherwise you just give up.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
