Are you worried you might, with time, grow out of your fursona/character?
Now, obviously, everyone happens to grow out of some of their hobbies, though in this particular case I am not thinking of a light, fleeting interest; not to be an elitist, but I feel like this question should mainly be directed to those who feel some kind of closer bond with the character/s they have created.
From my previous post, and this one, one could come to a quick conclusion that I am utterly fascinated by the idea of creating and endlessly carving an extension of oneself (to put it creatively); and you could not be closer to the truth. When I find myself looking for a question to ask, it almost always comes down to the topic of fursonas, my most prevalent preoccupation.
If you, the reader, are keen to answer the question, I'd also like to inquire into just how close you feel you are to your character.
I'll go into a little more detail with my own example:
For me, my two characters act as my role models and guides, to some extent. I'm aware that their personalities are far from perfect, but their example gives me something to head for and helps me break out of my comfort zone and try something new. ...it's complicated and I am not so keen on discussing this topic myself, hypocritically enough.
As much as their company gives me no harm, and makes everyday life more interesting, I imagine time and other priorities will put paid to this endeavour, even as a fairly mature adult. I feel like it would truly be a shame to abandon something so inspiring for me, something with such deep roots within my past. An outlook like this kind of scares me, how I would become just another shallow human, though I feel like a different meaningful goal would take its place instead.
It’s confusing for me, which is exactly why I would like to hear from others, to see their insights.
And remember: no answer is wrong ^^
