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.

    I’m so sorry to read this Caitlin ……… I do hope that Life takes an upturn for you soon and you find something, or someone, to lift your spirits. This time of the year always seems bleakest.

    Hang in there and I’m sure you’ll find new friends and new pleasure. Till then – be safe, wherever you are.

    Sending you hugs Caitlin. This is the exact position I found myself in mid last year. The last of my long term SL friends moved on and left SL. Coupled with a serious decline in my health leaving me even more isolated in real life I have found it really hard to log in to SL. I no longer know where to go to meet people in SL, and no longer know how to reach out to people even if I did.
    Hang in there, sending prayers your way that you find your path again. By all means, do decorate your house (which is gorgeous by the way!), anything that keeps that connection with SL, and distraction from real life going. Best of luck with everything. <3

  6. Caity, I’m sorry you’re in a painful patch of your Second Life. I’ve been through the same thing, and the good news is, these barren times do pass. I hope that new friends enter your life, and bring into it the joy you’ve shared with us before. <3
