This realization was my straw. I just can't, in good conscience, use LJ anymore. I won't be deleting my journal because I may decide I want to do Yuletide this year, but other than that, I'm walking away.
It makes me horrifically sad. Because it means essentially I'm walking away from a lot of the fandom stuff I've loved. It's been a huge part of my life for over a decade. But I have to do this.
I haven't made my mind up about DW. I'll be honest, I don't really like it. Plus, not checking LJ the past month has relieved me of stress a tiny bit. It's time I can devote to other things. But I don't know if I'll be able to stay away. I guess we'll see.
