Here is how I left a toxic online group!
Some of the members were deliberately posting content that was rather hurtful for most of us.
Following is my last message in the group.
I have come to believe that being an active (passive most of the time) participant of this group has become quite detrimental for my peace of mind.
In truth I feel there is an awful lot of unwarranted covert aggressiveness going on in this group by posting stuff that is neither respectful nor kind.
In fact in a group consisting of many individuals such ambiguous posts can be directed at just anybody. And in all honesty it can provoke quite a hurtful response, I am sure most of you would agree!
My intention is not to change anyone’s mind but I am a person who strongly believes and practice the virtue of being kind and respectful of other's feelings.
So before I leave this group I wanted to ask you all to be kind.
I also ask all of you to forgive me for any ill or wrong that I may have done or caused - unknowingly.
P.S I can always be reached at my number for one to one chats.
Bowing out gracefully.
