By this logic, I'm a companion keeper, but there are times that I desire a group of spirits with specific jobs or abilities (such as a couple Guardians for protection, or a couple wealth bringers, etc.). I always wind up feeling bad, like I'd be betraying my first Spirit, and I wind up worrying over whether I'd be able to devote enough time to them individually to make sure they know how much I'd value them and the presence they provide for me. I dunno. I'm weird I guess. I think it's that paranoia that might make me stick with one Spirit forever and just invest in a bunch of spells, haha.
I felt the same way you did before I got a few more spirits. I was worried my first spirit would be jealous or upset if I brought more spirits home. Our spirits are elevated beings. They don’t feel the same human emotions we do and we often project our own feelings on to our spirits. Don’t be afraid to get more spirits if you want or you feel a calling from one or a certain race. No need to rush into anything but don’t be worried about your first spirit being upset. I currently have 4 spirits and that’s all I’m taking in for right now because I feel the same as you. I want to spend time with each spirit and get to know them all. Hope this helps!
It does, thank you. I forget that they don't feel and associate things the same way we do so it's good to have that reminder.
