Hello? Hello! I saw scouting out the threads here and noticed one that was about the same thing I'm posting about, The OP of it had a very negative outlook on SL and decided to leave. What is second life to you, what has been your experince here? Hopefully this thread will become popular and referenced to later for those who need a pick me up! "And if not?" You may be asking, If not.. Well, that's okay too! ^^ I always try to think positively about the world in general and try to see the good in everything even on my darkest days when my brain screams at me. Here has been my experience here. I came to SL on my very first account back in 2005, Then some things happened in my (at the time) teenage life and I had to leave, but I came back and spent time here and on IMVU, I came back because I missed what SL gave me that IMVU did not. I missed the freedom I had, I missed the places I loved being in, and being able to roleplay with people who knew it was more than cybering. Again, I had left when Mesh first started coming out, and just recently I had returned. Second Life, meant I wasn't alone. It gave me people to be social with since in RL I'm an agoraphobic. Leaving the house is scary to me, even with the medication I'm on it's still hard for me to get out of the house, even with my service dog. Overall? My take on it, Second life has been a saving grace to me. It helps me from feeling like I'm missing out on the world, it lets me feel like I'm apart of it, Allows me to indulge in experinces I can't in my everyday life and of course.. Be able to modify my body to how I hope to one day look Rl. (Mainly about 30lbs lighter than I am and with long hair. Lol, Yes I do work out in my home.)
