Figured I'd just keep it short and straightforward because I doubt anyone really cares too much
Why I quit:
I requested my acc get banned a few months ago for many reasons however the main one was that the website kinda changed me.
Long story short in a weird way I became obsessed with this website and became very paranoid about losing a debate.
Not only this but this website kinda made me become very cynical of the world and very detached from it.
However, I recognize that this isn't anyone's fault except my own for allowing DART to consume and transform me.
Why I return
I'm primarily returning because in the last few months I really missed this community deeply in the past few months.
And logging back in being met with some messages of people saying their goodbyes really reminded me of that.
However I'd like to make one thing clear, I have zero interest in online debating.
In a lot of ways, I've kinda become bored and disinterested in online debating. Add on to that school, scouts, and my social life, I really don't have a lot fo time to be debating anymore even if I had an interest.
I'll primarily be using this website as a means of having discussions and voting on debates.
For anyone interested in how my life's been going, it's been going perfectly as of now.
After I broke up with my abusive ex in august my life has just been amazing in a lot of ways. I've found that ever since then I've been a lot less depressed and frustrated. Rather lately I've been very happy and content with my current situation. In fact, I've actually struck up a new romantic relationship recently and I'm going on a date with him today!
I even made a lot of new friends and overall have had a lot more time to actually have meaningful relationships and do the things I want to do.
In the end, I'm just happy I made it out of that debacle alive and well.
Anyways I'm just really happy to be back in this community and I guess I'll see you all around!
