I keep forgetting this thread exists, lol.
Anyway, there's this group I started hanging out with during Covid who have a whole podcasting network (which will be nameless) that I've actually been on quite a bit. They seemed pretty cool, but as time went on, some of the group (who'd been through college together) turned out fairweather friends or a-holes, and the people who've stayed have just gotten meaner, more surly, more defeatist, etc. I know I need to cut them out, but it's just hard because there's one guy who's still chill & sweet, but I just don't know how he manages being friends with such jerks.
Like, being on the podcasts is fun and all, but I'm in the part of my life where I'm done just coasting by & want to be a voice actor. Problem is I'm worried about something I said in the past on those podcast being taken out of context & worry that I'll have to take a hard stance of "that was a part of my life I'm done with, I don't stand for those people anymore." Except, then I'm the fairweather friend in that scenario, & it all just sucks no matter how you slice it.
