Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
I have noticed that a lot of people go through life playing the "Why me" card every chance they get. It seems that instead of taking control of their lives, they would rather be the victim.

So my question is:

How do you deal with/help people that refuse to own up to their problems?

October Knights want to know!


What say you, Iwaku!

Depends on the problem, and the person. Often enough, I tell them to just man up and deal with it. :| I'm harsh like that. I went through a phase of whining "WHY ME" and crap like that; decided it got me nowhere and that it was annoying. That's one good thing I learned from my step-dad, I guess. He'd always tell me to suck it up and figure it out. So I give people the same words.

If the situation is something worse, or it's an ultra-sensitive person, I will be nicer. I'll comfort them and assure them all will be well, because if you try to improve what's bad, things really will work out. They always do.
