I often use RPing as a type of therapy for real life issues. For instance, I was repeatedly sexually assaulted when I was in jr. high by a group of boys & never dealt with it IRL so I have my character kill rapists. The problem is, I always worry I might be upsetting a rape victim every time I do this, even though it helps me work through my feelings.

Mod Thoughts: [[MORE]]Just a reminder though that roleplaying does not in any way take the place of professional council and proper therapy. There are free an anonymous ways to receive psychiatric help, and that’s truly the healthiest thing you can do for yourself.
