Making an Effort to be Better
When it comes to my characters, I’m pretty OCD. I like them all on the same server. I like different servers for different factions. I’ve been playing on Argent Dawn for a few years now, but I used to play on Hyjal with horde. I left when my husband started playing. Except he’s not playing any more, and I’ve been really lonely.
As much as my anxiety would like people to constantly reach out to me, I realize this is unreasonable and the fact of the matter is that I too have to put forth effort if I want to find a ‘home’ and connect with people.
I recently returned full time to Seaghyn, a guild I’ve been in for many years as a casual – horde, on Hyjal. I’ve started moving my horde characters over using tokens, and so far I have 4 moved. It’s a full population server (or at least high population) and VERY different from my quiet low population of Argent Dawn. I’m making an effort to get involved with things, help people, and be present. I’ve been lurking in discord for years now, but I don’t really say much. All the channels they have make me feel overwhelmed.
I need to make my own efforts, though. I can’t expect everyone else to do that for me, it’s just not fair. I just hope I’m up to the task.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
