I unfollowed a bunch of people this morning. It's a crummy solution given some of them are local and I really enjoyed their posts. That said, my mental health is worth more to me than "internet friends". I need to be able to enforce some boundaries on what reaches my eyes on a daily basis, and this is the start of the self-care of doing exactly that.

I've decided I will unfollow anyone who is unwilling to content-warn political discussion/debate/posturing. I used to do this on Twitter, when I was still there, before it became impossible to keep up. I see no reason Fedi would be any different, aside from my own idealism (which is obviously entirely unfounded and ill-placed).
