As I'm following more and more people here, I'm starting to see more and more of the things I don't like on other platforms:
- Folks spreading FUD
- Folks not assuming positive intent in their conversations
I stopped using Twitter because this kind of atmosphere wasn't good for my mental well-being. It wasn't a fun, rewarding, learning experience. The Fediverse felt more like that to me a few months ago.
On one hand, I know of a quick fix: keep my social circle small, unfollow when in doubt. On the other hand, not following more people doesn't widen my horizons, doesn't open me to more opinions, ultimately keeps me in a bubble.
Is there another solution I'm missing? Anyone have any tips?
