Holy shit, tie down everything that might blow away in the wind, it’s time for a Mod Opinion

It’s okay to use your RP blog as an escape from life bullshit, because god knows we all need that sometimes. If it makes you feel better, go for it, dude. It’s your blog. 

HOWEVER!!!!!

  1. RP (or any other hobby really) is absolutely not a replacement for Real Actual Therapy from a Trained Professional. If you need support, it’s okay to seek it. But sometimes it’s just not fair to other people to expect them to know what trained professionals know and do what trained professionals do. Sometimes, you gotta recognize when your RP (or other hobby) just isn’t cutting it. 
  2. If RP (or other hobby) makes you feel worse, not better, stop doing it. If it stresses you out or makes you sad more often than not, it’s time for a break. It’s hard to take that break. I understand, I have been there. But man, when life is getting you down, you don’t need a fictional life getting you down either. Get the load off your shoulders if you need it. YOU and YOUR mental health come first, not RP or any other hobby.
  3. Don’t (or at least try not to) trigger other people. If you use a blog to vent, RP blog or not, it’s a good idea to put some basic warnings on your posts, just for the sake of safety and respect. It’s rude not to warn people about stuff and no one likes that particular kind of surprise. Yes, you can post whatever you want on your blog, and yes, people can unfollow you if you don’t like it, but… Potentially making other people feel worse won’t make you feel much better. Slap those warnings on. It’s okay if you forget, everyone does it, but intentionally avoiding it is a Dick Move. 

Capicé?
