Hollie Leavitt Posted November 1, 2018 Share Posted November 1, 2018 I find myself coming back to SL whenever something's missing in my RL. I first joined SL when I was depressed and things weren't going well in my RL. SL can add to your RL by bringing enjoyment, but personally I think it can also take away from your RL. Because although there are less constraints in SL as there are in RL, there are constraints nonetheless which can sometimes lead to a choice that has to be made - whether to invest in your SL or in your RL. For example, choosing to spend money on dolling up your avatar vs spending money buying an outfit that you can actually wear in RL... or spending time living through your hot avatar vs spending time at the gym in RL so you can be a hotter version of your real self. Personally, I don't like that opportunity cost but I guess that's just life, whether it be SL or RL. After having disappeared from SL for 11 years, I only log in to the extent that it adds to my RL satisfaction... which I admit, is not much. I actually frequent forums more than i do inworld. I guess I enjoy the connection ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
