Empathy for the Devil

Monday morning ramblings from me today as I think out loud about a subject! We all need a kick up the ass sometimes to make us appreciate those we have around us and the trials that they have going on in their life. Everyone is dealing with their own battles and while we are we have to remember sometimes that those affect the people around us too.

I have someone in my life who has a ‘friend’ that is clearly mentally unstable and has repeated patterns of challenging behaviour and I’ve seen this on numerous occasions in Second Life. It’s a simple fact that the predominance of people with a mental health issues in Second Life, is by its nature, higher than the average in real life. These can be mild issues from anxiety and depression to more severe issues. I’ve suffered from the former myself in the past and I’m not convinced that a virtual world is the healthiest place to work through those issues. Should there be more support within Second Life for mental health issues? Either to help educate our friends to support us or to help people find help when they are ready to accept it.

I don’t know, and I’m not judging, as I said I have had my share of issues in the past too. It’s just something on my mind of late. Of course it’s important to appreciate that some people aren’t mentally ill at all, they are just trolls, or immature and enjoy drama too.
