Hey role players! I wanted to share this in depth study on Actors vs. their Characters i found, in hopes of elevating some stresses that we all go through while rping out the drama inflicted on our characters. It's a little long but trust me, insightful, and could broaden your own personal perspective of what your character is, or help alleviate some personal drama evolving from it.
