I am leaving SW permanently.

The 72 hr clock will start tonight. If you wish to keep in touch, please PM how you would like to do so.

I'm reducing my online presence among other reasons. I'm tired, upset, angry, frustrated.

Thank you for putting up with me. I'm glad to have met many of you and wish you all the best. This will probably get buried in the sea of questions, so feel free to tag people who may not see it right away.

So people know, 72 hrs ends about 9:30 CST, Jan 2.

[@554696,MechE96] It's 9:30 AST, two hours left, I wish you well 馃

Although I'm not on much anymore, the past couple of weeks I've had some extra time to hang. I was wondering why I haven't seen you for a while. I'm sorry you feel this way but I know it's been an issue for you for a long time. I wish you all the best honey. I hope you find the peace you're looking for. 馃
SW User
[@517284,HarryRidesTheShortBus] I don't know why I didn't see this sooner, but thank you. There is a bunch of new things that have occurred outside of SW that I need to protect myself as a result.

I have enjoyed all of our conversations and being downright stupid silly with you. It will be missed. I hope your new beginnings are everything you hope for and so much more.
SW User
I'll miss you, not many STEM people in here I can talk nerdy to, but I understand your motivation. I've always kept a low profile on social media because there are just too many downsides. Imma PM you my email. Stay in touch, okay?

SW User
[@763507,crossproduct] I too will miss getting full-nerd with you, but email is a great option, and I look forward to many emails with you. 馃

I was about to leave two days ago but I couldn't . It's hard leaving and hard staying . Friends come and go and I constantly have to try looking for new friends . It's exhausting and I have more important things to get done . My life isn't great at all now and I have a long way to go . The only thing you can do is try to stay positive no matter how sad life has become . Good luck
SW User
[@822559,LookupAbove] Thank you. I regret not continuing to be a constant when you return from being away. I need to heal and choose a different path with my life. I wish you immense luck and success with yours, please stay strong. 馃

[@554696,MechE96] Thanks this place in reality is only a waste of time keeping us from doing things that might improve our lives . I feel like a zombie staring at my phone . I should be doing other things . Keep strong and remember no one has a perfect life .

Your presence here will be missed more than you may know. I hope that you can find peace and happiness in this coming year. I'm glad that you're making a choice for YOU, but it's always sad to see the good ones go.
Sorry you鈥檙e feeling like this. I hope things eventually look up for you
SW User
[@607935,HijabaDabbaDoo] I've learned I am not meant to be happy.

I've learned that people come and go, and people come and go faster online.

I've learned that the amount of caring and devotion put in is not always equal coming out. Frequently it amounts to a "Thanks, you're sweet!" And they go on their way.

I have learned to stop fighting.
[@554696,MechE96] Everyone is meant to be happy. Some just have a longer road to finding it.

People come and go, yes. Some things are inevitable. Not everyone in your life is there to stay but those that do? They鈥檙e worth holding onto.

Another hard truth yes, but it鈥檚 a process. Like with most difficult periods in our life, there鈥檚 usually a turning point and these times usually allow you to grow as a person unlike any other time.

Again, i鈥檓 sorry you鈥檙e feeling like this and i鈥檓 sure you have enough reason to but know this doesn鈥檛 have to be the be all end all. I hope you see this one day.

Genuinely one of the kindest, nicest, most fun people I've ever met online. I'm so glad we have an alternative way to keep in touch. Looking at the comments here, you're loved, my friend!
SW User
[@717536,Lauren19] It makes it all the more harder to leave, but I need to.
I hope the steps you are taking will help you find some peace and happiness. Your presence will definitely be missed 馃挌
