56. How to…give ’em everything… and survive.

Pssst. Here’s the secret: it requires a baseball bat.

But not really.

See, the thing about relationships in both worlds is that we’re people, and people are flawed, scared, and sometimes dumb animals who will often bite the metaphorical hand that feeds them. It happens sometimes… more than any of us would like to admit. So, why trust anyone then? Why even bother letting your heart get mixed up in such a mess?

Here’s another truth bomb: it’s even worse in Second Life. This is likely because more often than not, even if you know the person – really know them – there’s a disconnect that happens between that person and the avatar. It’s okay to hurt you because they don’t have to look you in the face when they do it, and they don’t think they will ever see the repercussions of those actions. And the people that do stuff like that? Hurt you for the sake of hurting you because they forget that you’re a person just like they are? They’re not worth it. Trust me.

But the thing is… there’s plenty of others who are. People who will accept you, who will speak to you and not about you, who will love you completely and unconditionally, who will lift you up instead of tear you down… and they are worth it. They are so worth it.

You just have to take the leap. Take a chance. Is it possible you’ll get hurt again? Sure is, buttercup. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that’s always a possibility. However, there’s also another possibility – that you’ll leap, and that person will catch you instead of laughing while you fall.

And there’s really only one way to figure out which one it is, regardless of whether or not we’re in Second Life or staring them right in the face…
