I haven’t been up this long since before I was in college, guys. My dog is sick in real life, and it is this never-ending cycle. It’s starting to calm down a bit finally. I woke up yesterday around 10AM – it’s almost 9PM my time right now, and if I add together the little naps I’ve managed to get between getting up and down, I’ve slept maybe four hours. I am exhausted, but that’s alright, because that dog has taken care of me – has saved my life before – and now I am taking care of him until he feels better. My poor fluffy cuddle bug.
It’s times like these when it’s really important to remember the people who matter. It’s been an insane couple of days, but I’ve had friends stay up with me, friends who have checked in on both me and my pup, friends who have offered their own tips and well-wishes. I know it sounds silly, but you know what? It still matters. And the most interesting thing about it is I would not have met a single one of these people if not for my time here on Second Life. We’ve never met, but when my life gets rocky – as seems to be my lot from time to time – these are the people who check in on me, who cheer me on, and who remind me that I am not alone and things will get better.
SL allows us to connect with so many different people we otherwise wouldn’t have in our lives. While that isn’t always a positive experience, please cherish those that are. There are friends of mine in SL who know me better than people I’ve known in real life for decades. There is absolutely nothing written anywhere that says that the relationships we build here are any less important – any less valid, or any less impacting – than relationships we make in the real world. So, cherish them. Accept the love and support you are given, and please remember to return it in kind when you have the chance.
We could all use a little more positive vibes in our lives, right?
