Meet me on the battlefield, even in the darkest night
I will be Your sword and shield, Your camouflage
And You will be mine
Echoes of the shot ring out
We may be the first to fall
Everything could stay the same, or we could change it all…
I went a bit literal with this inspiration today – but as I mentioned to Tray who’s posing with me… I couldn’t be bothered to not take it literally. Sorry, not sorry.
I’ve always – mostly affectionately – referred to myself as a loner, a platform hermit, and other variations of the phrasing that pretty much just indicates I hang out by myself most of the time that I am in SL. And that’s not to say it’s necessarily a bad thing all the time… in fact, most of the time I enjoy it.
But the dangerous part of my loner mentality is that most of the time I feel like I have to go through shit alone… because I always have. It’s just always been what I was used to. However, as hard as it is to remember, it doesn’t have to be that way, you know?
You might be sitting at some of the lowest points, by yourself… or facing some of the hardest parts alone… but it doesn’t have to stay that way. There is no harm in reaching out to someone and letting them know you might need some help or some support.
“Practice what you preach, Ronin.”
I know. I hear you already… I’m notoriously terrible at this… but I’m trying to get better. And I think I have, lately.
But anyway… for anyone going through something right now, who happens to stumble along this… you don’t have to do it by yourself. You might be choosing to because you think it’s easier than dragging someone else into it, but you’d be surprised sometimes, at how many are willing to get right down there in the thick of it with you.
I know I have been.

– These leggings are some of my favorite things in a long time. There is a huge assortment of denim texutures (like the one I’m showing) to make them look like jeans, as well as colored legging textures to make them look more like leggings. The side panels can be changed independently of the main color – and the side panels can also be written on with Blue’s Write On my Leggings HUD.
