I'm probably going to do a pretty drastic friends cut. It's just a weird time in my life, so I feel much more vulnerable that I normally do, and I find myself not posting here because of that vulnerability or...well I don't know why, really. It's not like anyone specific is leading me to feel like I can't share. But I've never been a filter person -- it just feels weirdly dishonest (and also, just a hassle!) and some gut feeling is leading me to believe I need to keep this place a little more cozy right now. Not sure when I'll do it, but sometime in the coming days. I hope there are no hard feelings.

You're my hope for LiveJournal. You and only a few others. I'm so glad you're taking steps to feel safe and secure in this community, I'm happy you're still here. Love you. <3

I totally know the feeling. Do whatever you need to ensure you feel cozy :)

No hard feelings if I'm cut, it's your journal not mine ❤️

I'm a "newer" friend (in the relative realm on things!) so I understand if that is one of the loose factors. Either way, thank you for making this post so people know it is not personal.
And if we do stay on the livejournal journey together ( picturing everyone jumbling around on a roving but really interesting boat) definitely looking forward to seeing what kind of place this does end up becoming for us--all of us!

I understand completely, and I really hope it helps you get back to journaling (even if I'm one of the ones who needs to go for that to happen). ♥!!!

This is your safe space. If doing a cut makes you feel safer, I fully support that, even if I don't make it ♥

Do what makes sense for you! You don't owe anyone more posts.

No hard feelings. Did you get my email?

I feel bad that I so rarely comment, because I really enjoy reading about your life. I honor your choices and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your LJ for whatever time I'm here. <3

Hugs and empathy, friend. Those liminal times are not easy to navigate.

I wasn't online this week so I am slow to reply to this post (we were staycationing in a cute hotel near my office and it was fabulous!!), but in general I agree with you completely that LJ is a "personal" space and you shouldn't keep people around who don't really feel like "friends" to you, BUT THEN in specific I really enjoy your posts and I hope that my extended LJ absences don't boot me into "not a friend" territory!! And of course if it DOES boot me there, that's your decision and I totally respect that and no problem!! But I'd be sad for myself. :) And I hope you are well, I hope whatever is making you feel vulnerable right now is either a passing thing ORRRR will have fabulous character-building outcomes in the end.

I hope all goes well in your new job and new career! No hard feelings. I'll miss reading about your life. Feel free to add me back in the future if you're comfortable. Be well:)

I am so late in reading this, because I don't check in on livejournal like I used to. I consider coming back all the time and then... never do. I completely understand the need to keep livejournal a cozy space. I have enjoyed your journal immensely over the years. No hard feelings, and all the best to you and your family!
