CAN WE TALK ABOUT

  1. How fucking nice everyone here is?
  2. I know it's not the first, nor will it be the last, time that I write about The List App and how it's changed my life for the better.
  3. But the past few days (or, let's be real, months) have been super fucking tough and on all other social media I've withdrawn.
    Twitter, Tumblr, FB, etc.
  4. Here, instead, I've poured out my soul to all 2700 (whatthefuck) of you instead, and I haven't just received hearts and hugs and comments.
    All of which, for the record, are super appreciated.
  5. But people have personally messaged me to check in to see that I'm okay.
  6. I don't get that anywhere else.
  7. And the funny thing is, I'm more anonymous here than I am anywhere else.
    Most of you haven't seen my face which is a decision I stick to not out of distrust but out of a lack of self-esteem, and because it's easier to write if I'm not worried about you thinking of my expression as I type the words.
  8. But I still get more love here than I do elsewhere online.
  9. At first, I thought that this was just a novelty and after a couple months my love for this very special form of social media would die out.
    But it hasn't.
  10. It's grown.
  11. And I've grown to love the hell out of you guys, to trust the hell out of you guys, to know that if I have a terrible day I not only won't be judged but I also won't be ignored.
  12. I'm not screaming into the void.
    Even if some of my sentences read like MSN status messages from 2004.
  13. The void is listening, and screaming back.
  14. With love, with understanding, with compassion.
  15. I'm so thankful for this app.
    And I'll keep saying it for as long as it has my back - which I imagine will be for a really long time.
