One of the old legacy elements of roleplaying forums and instant messengers that I so miss is the consistency and rate of urgency people once had in posting in them. It was not an uncommon experience, at least in my life, to have spent hours writing posts to and back per day, four to six with others, multiple paragraphs at that. It really is a cherished relic I wish would return but have no high hopes for, with the fact being in this, that is what I truly seek if possible in this genre of hobby.
I can sympathize with you. It's taken me hours to write a simple, short post before. The words just don't come to me and to make matters worse, I'm my own worst critic, so whatever progress I make will sometimes be deleted.
This past Sunday morning a friend of mine invited me to a soup kitchen in the downtown area to help feed the homeless there, something of which I'd never done tbh. I was hesitant at first, not being any kind of a social person, and even less so in a room full of complete strangers. But, it was so awesome and so humbling to have experienced it first hand.
My heart broke, esp for the children there, and even listening to those parents who had given up days of not eating so their kids could. I suppose that morning, I also gained a new perspective, and realized that whatever challenges and hardships I may be going through was nothing compared to what those beautiful people had to deal with on a daily basis.
