I’ve been apart of an rp group for over a year and up until recently, I’ve felt welcome.
But, over the past couple of months, I’ve made some of my friends angry and I’ve annoyed others multiple times. It makes me really sad and anxious when this happens…. I don’t feel like I’m a “bad” rper, but some times I feel sick with guilt over the mistakes I’ve made and the anger I’ve caused people.
It’s been hard to reply to threads because I constantly feel like I need to walk on eggshells. I just wish it was just…fun again.
I understand where OP is coming from.
But let me just say this:
RPing is collaborative writing. Part of the fun is interacting with characters someone else is controlling adapting to their view of the story, and not knowing exactly what will happen next. If they are telling you what you should and should not do in a reply, they need to go write by themselves.
RPing is fun, it’s a past time. It’s a place where you learn. You shouldn’t be ridiculed and you shouldn’t be made to feel like this. Your version of the story is just as important as theirs is. <3
