On the brink . . .

10.9k AircraftoftheRedStar  1.2 years ago

I may be leaving, but I’m desperately trying not to.

Life is just so depressing for me right now that I’ve lost my motivation to build. I burnt myself out after creating two huge bombers in two months and haven’t recovered since. I desperately want to continue building, but as mentioned above, I have zero motivation. If I don’t find help, I most likely won’t be posting for two or three months.

    I am taking a break from building, a good relaxing month long session. However I will still be active on the site.

    For those who are wondering, I have not considered suicide and never ever will. The thought of causing all my friends and family tremendous grief terrifies me.

    Thank you. I’m already trying to make a comeback, but am starting small.

    I’m slowly making my way back into building again, but it’s hard work.

    Like, I've spent the last few days playing around with the stock Jundroo planes.

    :/
    After my F-35A (Will be published today. T to be tagged), I'm in the same place. I just cant seem to build anything half decent anymore. I'm losing motivation, and when I try to build, it's a piece of crap that I'd be ashamed to upload. The thing is tho, SP is all I have to do anymore. Idk what to do about this.....

    I hope you eventually feel better and start building again. Feel free to take as long as you need. @AircraftoftheRedStar

    I don’t know. Airliners don’t strike my fancy unless it has a weird configuration or something like that. Even so, I have some amazing projects for when I return. 😊@Numbers

    I usually get burnt out after a while, and leave until I feel like coming back. It helps me not get bored of the game, and makes it much more fun to play. Mental health is always the most important @AircraftoftheRedStar

    You don’t need to stay. If you need to take a break, take a break!

    Trust me, most of us simpleplanes players know that feeling. Being someone different, feeling that you just dont fit in and that you just have to get a life instead of playing games and rotting on a chair.
    It only takes time before a commited member of this community gets into that situation.
    What i found helpful was trying to resist the need to play the game. (i know you have tried that before, just saying)
    stay strong, you arent alone in this. Look at your following and the comments on this post. These people like what you are doing and hope that you continue doing what you do.
    You probbably dont even know who i am and cant recall any of my builds, but i sure can. Id say you are a known member within this community, as much as the gold rating might decieve you.
    So stay strong and take your time, the suffering will eventually come to an end.

    welp good luck in the future, if you want a break take a break, you can do so at the drop of a hat if you want to. I disappear for months at random even a year once (kinda I uploaded a few times unannounced during it). Its all chill build what and when you want.

    Nobody forces you to do anything. You owe nothing to anyone here. I took breaks for 11 months, the penultimate build I did for two years. Do what you want, when you want.

    Yeah that’s the thing. The Soviets made the most simplistic ideas.
