Do you ever feel like there is someone out there who understands you better than anyone else? If so, you may have stumbled upon a concept known as an IRL Kin. This blog post will explain an IRL Kin and how to tell if you have one.
What Is IRL Kin?
IRL Kin is a term used to refer to those who identify as a fictional character or species in an IRL (In Real Life) setting. This can be for various reasons, such as coping with trauma, connecting spiritually with the character/species, or simply wanting to explore and express their identity differently. People who consider themselves IRL Kin can feel deep connections and memories with the characters and species they identify with, often leading them to believe that they are that character/species in some sense. This can lead to delusions of grandeur, but it is important to note that this is not the same as psychosis or any other mental health condition; it is simply another form of self-expression.
