The thing about Terraforums, or the entire internet is that although you may form special relationships or create a lot of meaningful substance online, there will always be the fact that it's not face to face and so people will operate within that reality and there will be misunderstanding, there will be a lack of a will to understand and there will, of course, be a large array of differing view points and beliefs.
There will also be giant run-on sentences.
These things you just can't avoid! So it is our job, and difficult sometimes, to measure out how much we let the internet shape our actual lives. Clearly you have gone all-out with Terraforums, you've been doing giveaways and forming friendships, taking it upon yourself to do contest threads and on top of that building such a giant collection in such a short amount of time. So take a break, let it sink to the bottom. Grow your plants, love your family do your thang. Just make sure to have a lot of update photos later on.
Remember the internet will be here. Terraforums will be here, and probably most of us will still be here.
Good luck on your changes and I wish you well.
