Super selective in approving follow requests here.
Off-hand, I make a note of the following:
1. Do you have a profile picture of you? I toot with a real face, I expect you will too.
2. And then, are you tooting personal stuff? Not just the highlight reel, but also the "difficult" stuff.
That said, please don't self-reject -- if I get a feeling we'll get along, I'll be happy to have you onboard.
But if you must, you may follow me on my public + professional-ish Fosstodon account instead: @celia.
I do not expect follow-backs. Have at it if you think I'm interesting and you don't mind lots of personal and work vent toots (usually behind CW).
What's difficult stuff?
@mur2501 I'll leave you to do your own research - https://duckduckgo.com/?t=canonical&q=highlight+reel+social+media+mental+health&ia=web
I see you also want the negative of life as well
@mur2501 That's one way to put it. 😂
My negative is I am hanging for college admissions still having idea what I wanna do
What's your negative?
@mur2501 Just read my toots that carry -/-ve/personal content warning. I've already been doing this.
Money money money
We, quite simply, are a safe space. A larger goal is to become a place for you and your friends to feel comfortable not just showing your uber positive highlight reel, but also talk about personal, often difficult, content that other platforms tend to penalize.
