Long story behind THAT bit of repression. Either way, this past Sunday I finally got around to downloading and installing KS looking for something to occupy me, maybe some faps. Instead I got feels. I got feels bad. All of the repressed feel from being dumped started surfacing, and I'm barely keeping it together. Does it ever get better? I feel more emotionally connected to these sprites on the screen than I do to people. I don't want to be that person, but feels, man. I have them. I'm confused and stricken.
It gets better. Look toward why
you care about these characters. Look toward the many examples of how this game has changed peoples' lives. Immerse yourself in the community, pay attention to how it's touched others. You'll get a sense of why it's affected you so much. That may give you a place to start.
Also, looking toward the community, pay special attention to the people whose lives have been changed. It doesn't need to be dramatic, but try to make a change in your life. Just like you do in the game, pay attention to your decisions. Just like in the game, they have consequences. Work to make your own good ending, even if only in a tiny way.
