“My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again.”
Hi guys x
This has been a long time coming so I’ll just write this here.
I started RP on Tumblr 5 years ago by July. I was 14 years old then, and didn’t expect to continue it as long as I have. I started RP on Instagram 3 years ago and my anniversary for RP is at the end of the month. In this past year I have realised that I’ve lost the love I once had for RP. When you spend a lot of time attacking yourself for not being good enough in terms of RP writing and themes, it’s certainly not healthy. I found myself taking more and more breaks, as I cut myself off from something I once enjoyed. I was planning on holding on until my 3 year anniversary, but realised dragging it out longer wouldn’t be beneficial for me. This has been a very difficult decision and it’s taken a while to come to this conclusion. RP isn’t necessary for my life and it’s causing my mental health to suffer. This has been the case for at least a year but I kept putting the issue off. This meant also that during my last year of high school my grades suffered due to the high amount of stress and pressure I was under, part of that RP related and the rest was all my own mental health. It’s taken a while to gain some stability again and I know that I don’t want to risk that by continuing something that causes stress so all consuming. Leaving RP is necessary for that reason and I want to make sure my mental health is stable enough before starting uni in September. This message has been written here too for closure. Note: both photography and editing give me joy still so I won’t stop either. This message is just necessary for closure. I’ll have more time now for writing related stuff that isn’t RP related and writing stuff without tearing into
myself for writing it.
There’s further projects to come, which I’ll keep this account updated about.
This edit in addition is the final edit of this style due to losing the texture. I might remake it, as I do miss this style. I felt it was fitting to use this style for this. It’s inspired by an edit by @celestialune
