I take breaks from time to time. It's important to have friends or a community that you have a common interest with or various others. I'm fortunate to have about 2 or 3 of those. We're respectful to each other, and we stray from many things that can cause an argument. It's just as important to have each other's back.
If something is done to another person that is very wrong, we come together for support. However, my last recent break somebody was very upset in my DMs. Though I did make it clear I was taking a break, and life was just something you can't control and that I would get back to them when I could. The last spammed message included "You haven't responded to me and I don't appreciate that at all!". 😬 So, if this sounds off, I am sorry but, no. I felt a major creepy vibe.
I do not like blocking others, but I have learned that sometimes it is needed. It is also okay to take a break from anything or anyone if need be. Don't engage in arguments, but do say what is on your mind if you feel. If people give you a tough time, helpful block button, or take time away. This place has been a wonderful breath of fresh air & it still continues to be, here and other places. 💕
