Friends, it saddens me to say that Mastodon is hard on my psychospiritual health. I am posting this excerpt from Thich Nhat Hanh’s book, Peace is Every Step, because when I read this, I cried. The “cookie” in my soul has been buried in shit. I am discontent. I am unhappy. I am scared. I am hurting. I am a recovering addict and I am allowing Mastodon to compromise parts of my recovery. I need to be present here and now. That’s good. That’s ok. That’s God.
@JosiahRA so I am leaving Mastodon for a season. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of you have my number. If you want some contact info, please reply to this post and I’ll connect with you. I love you. Yes, you. You’ve helped make my life better. Thank you. Namaste.
@JosiahRA Sad to see you go, but proud of you for taking your health serious. Take care, and enjoy the hell out of life!
@JosiahRA My sincerest well wishes, my friend. I hope you find what you need during this season. Grace, peace, and love be with you always.
We will be eagerly waiting to see you again. Thank you for being here and for making this community even better.
We love you, dear friend. And if I may be so bold, I love you too.
@JosiahRA be well, be safe 💚 💚 💚
Hope to walk alongside you again. DM me if you'd like a kiwi penfriend.
@JosiahRA I will miss your warm presence here! You are one of the few people I really look forward to hearing from when I’m on mastodon. Love seeing your blue hearts and rainbows in my notifications 💙🌈 Hope you find your joy soon 🧡 let’s stay in touch
@JosiahRA be well, friend! I will miss your presence here - your wisdom and kindness make my life better! But I'm glad you're taking the steps you feel are best for you right now. We're here if you need anything 💛 🕯️
@JosiahRA I wish you all my love & support on your journey of rediscovery.
I feel like I'm having Joey withdrawal. 😜
As I'm reading & responding, Josh Groban's "Remember When It Rained" just started to play on Pandora. Oh speak universe, speak. 😮
I hope you are not a stranger and we stay in touch.
