I am a privacy activist, just trying to feel my way through this world. I decided I would join this community because the more I go at this alone, the more parinoid “tinfoil hat” I become. I started out with this cause about 2 years ago, I now have a linux laptop, no social media, and have a new phone on backorder (it’s a pixel to use calyx). I figure the more I isolate myself, the higher the chance I have of basically losing it and hiding under my bed for all of eternity. I hope this community can help me to feel more acomplished about how far I’ve come, and less isolated.
I feel you. The more I stay away from the internet, the more isolated I feel. But that’s kinda good, because now I have time for myself and I am more focused now.
I do have a couple of accounts on social media -that aren’t personal- so I could feel connected if I felt isolated. I use them rarely, and I post something every now and then.
Sometimes I feel like I’m not protected enough and I need to do more. But, I try to remind myself of what I’ve accomplished so far and loosen up a little.
If you are not in danger, then I advise you to not be hard on yourself. And remember, life is more then the internet. Go out, meet your friends/family, take a walk, visit new places, try new things and hopefully you will feel better.
Have a good day!
