Real life has taken a lot of my time, and it is not at all the pretty and happy stuffs. Second Life has, for the past 10 years, been my escape and home away from home. A happy place without worries, just fun and friends. Being a social butterfly, to me it always was such a wonderful distraction.
Those happy times always come and go in waves and so I know there are episodes in both lives when things do not line up. As happened to me the past months. Real life worries, problems and all that made it hard to login to Second Life and be carefree. I’ve tried to escape but it was all too much.
Combined with the loss of some SL friends, who for all the right reasons either never log in anymore or, if they do they, have moved on and contact is getting less and less which by now basically left me in a situation I know all to well: lonely.
It is how it goes. I know. It’s not the first time I find myself alone and lonely in Second Life and I think things will change. But for now, I don’t know what to do with myself.
I should smack myself and start decorating my new empty house which I put on my land weeks ago.
So much empty rooms, such loneliness.
