Sudden startup failure. blank screen asks to reload


Hey everyone im new here and im not super savy with programming. im running atom on macos highsierra. atom has been slow starting up since i installed it. i always get a dialogue saying its taking too long and i have to press “keep waiting”. since i restarted the computer yesterday it completely fails to start up just giving me a blank screen. it says that it crashed and asks if i want to reload so i say yes but nothing happens, just the blank screen. i completely removed it from my system and downloaded a new copy, but when i started the new one, the exact same thing happens. any tips?


What happens when you open Atom from the Terminal using atom --safe?
