How do you get past a car crash?
Before the crash life is good and you have your nice shiny car all polished up. After the crash you second guess every move you made and lament over the wreckage you caused. God forbid that anyone was injured but if they were you feel responsible for that too. Some refer to a car crash as an accident however it wasnt really an accident in many casses. It was an act of forgetfullness, ignorance, or just reckless disregard for others.
Ok the car is damaged but can be fixed. The images remain embossed in your brain however. Do you deserve to drive again after making some bone head mistake that caused all that damage. It is really hard to get back behind the wheel for some after an accident. (aka crash). It may be irrational but then again maybe you need to pause and reflect. Perhaps a defensive driving course is in order? A little analaysis of the situation that led to the crash may be in order but running over the event every minute of every day is probably not doing much good for your self conficence which is now shot to hell.
Ok this not about a car wreck. It is about role play when things go wrong and the reason they went wrong rests fully on you. What do you do when you totally screw up a scene by not doing the simple things like checking profiles for limits? What if its even worse and you have read the persons profile like 20 times but forget and walk all over them? Oh and what if its someone you really care about ooc?
That happened to me yesterday and, of course, I apologized but I really have a hard time getting back in it. Its like i have this sign over my head that says JASMINE SCREWED UP with a huge red arrow to warn everyone away.
