A thing people don't say much about leaving Facebook and other big mainstream social media, is that it's not normal for us to be followed around by ghosts of our childhood for our entire life. If you stay in one place and so does everyone else that's one thing, but if you leave that place you should not be obligated to worry about who there will get mad at you, or who there is missing the context of your current self and will judge you for the past, and so on

It's really nice to shed that.


@redoak this was on my mind just yesterday and it's nice to have this perspective!
