Using up empathy
This isn't just an old guy rant about internet friends being fake friends. I have friends I have never actually met in person who I know a great deal about. We have shared many deep personal things. I will have the same empathy for them as I do for IRL friends because they are in my real life. If all I know is a self-censored timeline then I don't really know you. If I don't know what you regret I don't really know you.
Don't go to the internet with vague calls for support. Go to people who actually know you. Rant over.
