Making Changes in SL vs RL

Do you ever feel like making changes in SL because you can't really make changes in your RL life? I'm going through some RL stuff right now that I don't really want to get into on this blog but I really don't know what to do to change the situation.

Or should I say I do know but I'm not sure it is what I want to do because it will hurt a lot of people or in particular one individual a lot! It would also be very embarrassing or humiliating to admit to those around us. I just wish at my age that I would have already learned the lesson to listen to my gut and trust my instincts instead of being talked into something that I really did not want to do.

I guess one way for me to deal with it at the moment is to just start throwing money into SL and make all kind of changes. I feel like changing my SL skin and moving into a new place, etc.

I guess since I can't run away from the problem or myself in RL, I figure if I can run away from myself in SL that it will some how make me feel better or at least occupy my time by going skin, home and furniture shopping.

Whenever I find myself feeling out of control in my RL, I take it out in SL with building or hair shopping or buying expensive shoes. In fact, most of the things I build and give out to the group come at times when there is something going on in my RL! LOL

I hope whatever it is making you feel this way passes soon. *hugs*

There is nothing wrong with using SL to do things we can't in RL, having the escape and down time often makes us better able to face the RL.

Hugs to you, there is always light somewhere even if we aren't sure how to get to it at the moment.
