I've long shifted to worldbuilding and the like altogether, but when I was doing more roleplay (here in particular) it was pretty standard to just bake the story that would never be and its characters into some subset of my lore, with adjustments. No waste if it's reused material for a greater good.
Such is the nature of these things; most can't really enjoy roleplaying or writing for the hell of it. Only can be what you make of it, what you do to make things worthwhile is your own path. But I would say if it's getting that bad, a hiatus is an advisable start.
