How mastodon changed me
It was just supposed to be another network to make jokes on. Be silly, get laughs.
People were talking about real things, and… no one was berating them for it… that made me dip my toes in, and you beautiful people welcomed me and loved me and accepted me.
I dropped my sarcasm shield and shed my cynic suit and dove in completely. I've met amazing folks, friendships that have changed my life, and experienced authenticity.
You folks make this place great. Thank you.
