I feel like the tech instances are cool but I don't have much sense of community and the political instances are cool because people "get it" but often mildly insufferable, because I get it you know how to read political books

My main question is how do I find a healthy, motivating community to be a part of?

None of the online spaces other than facebook are places where I even feel like having conversations means anything or will go anywhere so when I do post it's just depressive pessimistic shit

Sure I should just go in the real world but I remember when I could message random people on the internet and make a friend.

Now I don't get that.

To elaborate, I've noticed that browsing facebook and reddit stories, and sometimes even my own rss feed can become alienating and depressing. Then when I come to masto, sometimes I get the same thing.

However it's the only place people usually respond in a genuine way when I bring this subject up, so that's positive.
