Virtual Family vs Real Life Family

Lyn Family means a lotI was thinking a lot about family here and in real life while I was away recently. We don’t have a choice who our real life family is. Your real-life family is important because you only get one and you know you can count on your family. There’s something very lasting and important about that.

Your virtual family kind of feels similar in terms of importance in its own way, but is much more of a choice. It’s literally family by choice. You become a family when your friendship grows to that point that there’s no other way to describe it. I tend to be able to share more heartfelt emotional things with my virtual family.

I tend to be able to share a lot with family in here but I also try to be more careful in some ways with them too. There are reasons why we don’t mess around in your real family just like there are in here. I Love my virtual family in a very pure kind of way.

Susan’s Loving LYN Poem

Lyn girls loving all togetherMy family consists of three
Katy, Kait, and Tay
consistently honoring me
each and every day

Katy is my wife
the cutest of the three
I need her in my life
she fills my heart with glee

Kait’s the selfless one
generous to the core
hot as the mid day sun
her passion I adore
colorful love
Tay is the sweetest thing
with music she melts my heart
it makes me want to sing
i loved her from the start

loving acts each day
showing who they are
incredible things they play
constantly raise the bar

three kind hearts make me weep
there love I cant deny
the love I feel so deep
its happy tears I cry

forever showing their love
selfless as can be
guided from abovepatriotic LYN girls
this loving group of three
if you havent guessed
I get on my knees and pray
thankful im so blessed
each and every day

together or apart
Im truly blessed you see
my angels touch my heart
loving family of three

In a virtual world Symbolism is more real

say you love you in imvu with silly thingsSymbolism means more in here than it does in the real world. Maybe it’s because it’s all symbolic, therefore it’s just as real as anything else. Maybe it’s because we don’t have the little mundane things in here. But giving things that mean something is a big deal. Susan is also the best at showing how much she loves with awesomely cute little little products. Don’t worry about being overly mushy or sentimental, be bold and show how much you love them. It can also be things you wear. It’s very special to have a necklace or bracelet, or tattoos that mean things. Katy is one of the best at that. She always had special ribbons and bracelets and she even gave me my LOVE necklace that I’ve worn since then.

I wear Susan’s name tattooed on my feet, that Kim made for me. I wear a special Lyn bracelet and locket with special pictures. It can also be giving someone a key to let them come into a semi private room or making a secret code that only they know. All of these things are important in here and help to build meaningful relationships, and the word BUILD is key. All of these things take time and make people feel close and loved.

Earlier today Gabby did something for Taylor that was very special. She gave her a family bracelet, making her a part of the family. One of the most wonderful things to me is the feeling of belonging that I get. It really is a family. There’s just no other way to describe it. It’s definitely one of the best feelings in the world being a part of that, strong loving group. And it’s even more special to welcome someone that I LOVE.
