I’ve spent the past three days letting my emotions unravel. I’ve always been an emotional woman even though I’ve learned to appear reserved on the surface, and I’ve always had times in my life when those emotions needed a rest.
Second Life is full of possibilities and I’ve had such great expectations, until recently. From the beginning, I’ve believed that most people in SL try to be good people. And I believe all of us should be able to be the best person we are capable of being. I try not to pass judgement on peoples real lives and their relationships. In fact, I try to draw a line between real life and SL and I encourage people to leave their real lives behind. Unfortunately, real life can burst into SL with a vengence, destroying every fantasy.
It’s now the morning of the fourth day since I left SL. I already realize that my second life and my real life are way out of balance. I know that it is too early to be thinking about solutions, but I am thinking about solutions. The main thing is that I have to cut back on or eliminate some of my activties in SL.
