When SL Touches RL
When I was in SL before I always seen these folk who 'played families' as strange. It is adults using a child's AV and talking like a child to another adult. I still don't get it. Each to their own I guess.
The furniture in SL for babies is what stopped me in my tracks. I never planned to look at this stuff, I was just wandering around and came across it.
This stuff made me a little teary, think I was feeling emotional as it was . My dream was to be a mother so when I got married we started to try for a baby pretty soon after the wedding, 15 years later and nothing. After a couple of miscarriages and failed IVF we had to just stop. My body went into early menopause. The chance of being a mother was over and my dreams gone. So when I seen this room set up it made me stop.
Some folk in SL must be in the same situation as me, I wonder does this help them.Those who had a crappy childhood, does this help them face some of the hurt from then. I don't know the answer to that but when I walk around SL and see a 'family' out I won't be as quick to judge as I was before.
Like I said, each to their own.
