leaving the scene?

did anyone else have some urge and thoughts about just calling it a day lately?

i know it might be a weird place to ask but i am kind of lost at the moment. the gothic scene and subculture just doesnt feel the same anymore like it did 20 years ago in various aspects. i remember back in the day, you could go out and it was a very cozy place with nice people and it felt home and theres always someone talking to you. right now it does not.

when we go out today, the scene around the clubs feels very bizarre in a way. like as if you re physically there but everyone is just watching from far away distance. i rarely meet new people anymore either. its mostly the same people every weekend, everyone is inside their little bubble an rarely interested in new people so everyone just comes as a group and leaves as a group. it feels very cold and unwelcoming, and unhealthy. and if you re single ontop its also almost impossible to meet new people because well… its always the same people.

and its not just the people. also in terms of music. its the same music playing that was playing 20 years ago too because there is almost no new stuff. it almost gives me a feeling of running circles. its not going anywhere or evolves into something. been there, done that, same stuff over and over.

i honestly feel bored, a little exhausted, and kind of stuck. like as if as soon as you re inside the bubble, you re trapped and you watch the outside world go by and everyone around moves on and does new things and evolves and then you look around and nothing is moving or changing. black gets quite stale aswell.

my taste in music is quite varied tho and i dont experience the same type of feeling in other genres or subcultures. for example i can guarantee you, if i go to lets say a metal bar tomorrow or some sort of festival or go to some techno rave, i will meet so many new people every time that i have never seen before and talk to new people and most people will be very welcoming and interested in you and you can just have a good time. the opposite is true if i go to any of the goth clubs. you pretty much just go there to dance for yourself and then leave.

i kind of miss exploring things and the world around and meeting all sorts of people and trying new stuff out and going forward. even tho i will always carry some of the experiences and influences with me and some of the aesthetic influences will prob. allways be with me and some of the songs will always be in my playlists, yet i keep feeling that i dont really want to be part of the bubble anymore and take part with the subculture almost as if its holding me back going forward and most other parts of the world dont even exist inside the bubble because the entire scene is so closed of in many ways.

I posted a few days ago about leaving my abusive boyfriend. My ride is coming tonight! I’m finally getting out of here! 🥳

Things came to a head today and I can't do this another day. I texted my friend and he's coming tonight! It's finally about to be over! Thank you to everyone who supported me. You guys are awesome. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

Edit: I know there's going to be some drama because he's going to be here when it happens. I know he's going to try to stop me. He's going to see me taking my stuff out of the bedroom. I'm a little worried he's going to physically attack me or try to restrain me. I'm considering calling the police to stand by but I don't want to put my friend through that. I'm just going to be firm and reiterate that it's over and I'm leaving.
