    Default Does it make me a bad fan that I want to take a break and step back from all this B.S going on?

    I am sick and tired of feeling the weird crazy one when I defend MJ and it's actually starting to burn me out. I don't get this with any other artist I am a fan of and believe me when I say there is plenty i am honestly just wanting to take a step back and ",mute" Michael on twitter and other social media platforms so I don't see any of it. It's extremely draining.

    I know how frustrating it can be sometimes. Nothing wrong with muting or taking a step back for a bit. Everyones on edge with the virus and what not.

    A lot of fans get burned out, it's nothing to be ashamed of. It's natural. Definitely step back and take a break from it if you need to. Self-care is very important.

    Hold your head high. No, you are no less of a fan; however, I want to tell you as I continue to say on here, "You have to keep/hear everything in perspective. Many of these people run their fingers about MJ because MJ was the biggest celeb in the world and really the most exciting. Look how obsessed some of these media folks are in being so willing to talk about MJ even 11 years after his death (Look how others are accused YET they do not talk or focus on them in the same way they do MJ. So it is not about the accusations more than it is about MICHAEL; otherwise, the media and those folks who gets on your nerves would be talking about those who were accused. THEY DO NOT). Also, the media think MJ help get sales & get them ratings (again MJ is also exciting to them. Look how some of those trolls still stalk MJ fans-some are just looking for drama anywhere they can get it also). These fools know MJ was innocent but they want to talk. Do not let it get to you. You MUST know most people are NOT sitting around trying to trash MJ no matter how some media outlets want you to think so (those media outlet are often saying what they feel, NOT the world/society). This why MJ is still being played despite LN and even the few who did removed his music has it back on. So again, keep negative trash in perceptive. You take it to heart about MJ because you love MJ probably far more than the other artists you like also. When LN came out last year, I was one on this board who told everyone that lying trash will be an overall flop and people will start taking it apart (debunk) for all the lies. Look, it happen. People who love MJ will continue to love MJ; and if there a few fans who do not want to listen to him no more, they were never fans from the start because there is too much info to show LN and everything else was lies (also you can not take serious some of these people. They were never fans but they think by claiming they were fans, it helps their lame argument. NOT). Just know MJ is loved (there will always be some haters as all of us have "haters"), his music is giving comfort to people in this stressful time, and MJ is in HEAVEN looking down smiling at the love you and all of us have for him.

    Stay away from negativity. Personally you have to be pretty thick skinned and have all your ducks lined up to bother with the idiots. I openly admit ive always stayed away from anything that is full of hate.it does you no good to go looking for it or get involved unless you just go to post somefacts and then walk away. Thats why we have places like this and other boards. the internet /twitter can totally screw your perception of reality.

    I get it. That docu airing and seeing all the tweets coming in from the usual folk stating so matter of factly about Michael based on some poorly researched one-sided hit piece made by someone with a history of MJ hit pieces! Not to mention the otherwise intelligent folk who accept it all. All backed up by an organisation with worldwide notoriety and integrity. It's very difficult. Especially when the cards are all stacked against us, and they had the best part of a year to fire their shots against us. To me it feels like this broken and battered defence ought to be firing back. But it remains largely silent.

    Michael didn't get cancelled. We all know that. But I have to wonder what damage over and above, perhaps longer term, is being done.

    I'm over the docu last night already. But I had some of those post Leaving Neverland thoughts in my head last night, similar to what you're feeling. It's just so difficult at times...there will always be people who think this about Michael but the biggest injustice to me is having the BBC approve something that to me is packed with lies and misleading information at a time when it's really time to present an opposition. Or rather, simply tell the full story.

    MJ will be fine. This trash just make the BBC look foolish. This only exposes the UK lying media.

    Ture. social media isn't really good for mental health. it's good to take a step back from it sometimes.

    You get to deal with haters and morons each day, fighting them and telling them off can really stress you out like it did to me after Twitter suspended my account for no fricking reason at all and I still say that’s nothing but a hater job on their part.

    Not at all. I think it is perfactly natural with everything that has been going on.

    Personally I'm getting more and more detached from the environment in general. I continue to listen to his music and defend him if I have the chance to, but I'm no longer into all the other things like what one or the other said or did... it's just a toxic world in my opinion, and it's definitely not for me. It never was and probably never will be, and has nothing to do with what Michael really was.
