personal growth 

The older I get, the smaller I want my personal world to be. More and more I prefer doing less but more meaningful stuff than to just gather experiences for the sake of gathering them.

personal growth 

@srxavi, I share the feeling. This world is plagued with "big", "great", (a fake sense of) growth. Most of that hyped stuff is meaningless.

personal growth 

@jalvarez I want to de-gamify my life. I don't want to keep getting trophies for doing stuff (visit that country, join that activity, participate in everything), in fact I want to remove "likes" and "achievements". This is one of the reasons I'm moving away from big social media and moving into smaller and more focused communities

personal growth 

@srxavi That's a laudable goal. This community is relatively small and friendly. It is more likely to have meaningful interactions because of that.

I have never been on the "big" social media platforms, but I must say that Mastodon has the same "gamification" elements (boost, favourite and comments), so be cautious.

personal growth 

@jalvarez you're right, but, at least for me, the joy of these small communities is in the interaction between peers and no so much in the prize (as in likes)
