By the looks of it most of my old buds from here have moved on and to all you people who don’t know me, hey :D
I quit shifting nearly 2 years ago. At the time I found this site I was really struggling with life in the real world and so I guess this was a kind of escape for me. When I first started,I was crazy excited and tried shifting everyday but after a time it didn’t become just about the shifting. It became about the people and the support they could provide me with. The easy chats I could have with them, the laughs and the silly late night talks.
When things in my life began to get a bit more stable I found I needed to rely on them less and less. Eventually I became happy enough with my real life and left this life behind. The thought of shifting, my friends here, everything..
So please try not to take this shifting thing too seriously, just enjoy the little journery it takes you on. If this is your escape two, well done, there are much worse things you could do to yourself to help you cope.
Note: This is not hating on Therains, I understand how protective you can get because you want it to be real. This is more my little story and maybe a few of you may be able to relate to this so you won’t feel alone.
