    This is probably a really weird place to ask, but, how do I stop wanting to roleplay? I know I’m not fit for it, yet I keep trying, and I really need to be able to just stop. Can anyone help me?

    I know this might not be what your looking for but if you keep wanting to role play then keep role-playing. There's no use in wanting to stop wanting to role play.
    I don't really get what you mean by saying your not fit for it.

    By “not fit for it” I mean exactly that, I’m really bad at writing, at least fictionally. Not to mention every character I use ends up having my personality. I keep getting excited and ready to do it again but then I realize I can’t and I just feel terrible.

    Just stop playing?

    Play a different game, do something else, etc

    This is more of a personal matter, if you can’t stop roleplaying maybe check with a doctor or get professional help? We aren’t professionals nor do we know your interests or who you are as a person?

    i mean if that's the case i think you should keep at it! it's with practice that we become better at things. you just need to be patient with where you are and keep striving to improve.

    I can’t stop, because I keep trying before I re-realize how bad I am. This hasn’t worked before, but I wanted to see whether anyone could help me here.

    When I first joined the server I was crap at role play I had bad grammar (I still do now lolol) but I kept at it. My characters had my personality too. It just makes it easier to role play like that. Actually only recently did I start doing odd or different personalities to help me get better and just for something new.
    I'm still kinda bad at role play and with my anxiety I'm even worst but I still try it because its exciting and fun. You aren't gonna become a good roleplayer over night if you just started either.
    Just be in it for the fun don't think about whether your grammar is bad or if you misspelled a words. Having fun is key and if you keep putting yourself down then you wont have fun.

    You don't need to know how to write to roleplay, and a character having your personality isn't the worst thing in the world. Most people here started off with a character like that. If this is something you enjoy, you shouldn't let a lack of expertise be what puts you down. If staying in character is what you think your problem is, then the community here is a great resource to mine for advice.

    So I joined Massivecraft for Factions. Mineman RP seemed to be really odd, and I couldn't fathom why anyone would waste their time doing it. It seemed silly. Fast forward and @BillyTheScroofy goes and almost arrests me for my red eyed skin, and I actually thought it wasn't as bad as I thought. Now I only rp.

    Everyone is gonna suck in the beginning. Be it writing, portrayal, whatever. The learning curve for the lore is notable, but not impossible. We all started out terrible, and we learned to get over it. And for those that didn't, they still have fun regardless, and more power to them.

    I don't see an issue with characters sharing your personality. In fact, every character created is gonna be a projection of your personality or someone close to you in some degree, because it is incredibly easy to react to things as if you are there instead of trying to comprehend a different type of personality.

    If you really don't want to roleplay, then survival is the way to go. Factions can be just as enjoyable as roleplay on here. There is also the quest world to collect items to either save or sell to everyone on the server. Though it seems like you have already jumped down the rabbit hole, so why not venture further out?

    I’m not sure how to respond now.
    I mean-you’re all making me want to try again, but,
    It’ll fail again, like it has the last ten or so times.

    Failure will always occur. Failure will lead to growth. Failure must be recognized, but not be dwelled on.

    Yes I did just quote part of the Viridian Order's code, but they're some good words to follow when you rp. Nobody cares if you screw up. We just want to de-stress and have some fun.

    Sounds like you've already made up your mind. Just saying.

    Hey dude. Writing is hard to improve, but hear me out. The best way for you to learn is observation. Do you read a lot? If not, read more. Read fantasy books, or honestly any fiction, or even non-fiction. Take note of other people’s writing styles, and you can observe others on Massive too, even. I formed mine by picking and taking things from other authors and such that I liked. You probability aren’t going to jump where you want to be overnight, but know it’s possible, -and you’ll get there in time. And hey,you’ve already got a leg up on others in my book, you use proper grammar and punctuation.

    There’s also nothing wrong for your character to share your personality. A lot of mine have at least one aspect of mine- that’s what makes them playable.

    You seem to have the basic concept of a sentence down. What exactly do you think you cannot grasp about writing/roleplay? You don’t have to be a genius to have fun with it.

    Reading makes me feel so intimidated (I don’t stop reading the books though)

    Oh, don't worry about the personalities of your characters. I had a single RP character, and it more or less had my personality. I had a good bit of fun with it. Although, if you really don't want to roleplay in Regalia or anything, share a bit about what makes you want to roleplay and maybe someone can suggest something else that fits your preferences a bit more.

    Well, now I’m going to try again.. if it really isn’t that bad for your character to have your personality..

    But.. my skin is really bad, so i don’t think it would go well with everyone else.

    Skins are just a rendition of pixels on a skin tied together to make a splash of texture that just seems right, and doesn’t honestly matter. You’ll ease into your talent, find the ropes and all things come later as you maybe multitask or find the right connections.

    No need to worry, just go with what suits you and the rest will just have to accept. It isn’t their decision unless it breaks the rules.
