Kin and Spirit Guides: What's the Difference?
As of late, I have noticed some people on other sites (not TG) mixing up kin and spirit guides.
The largest difference?
Kin is an animal you identify as, and spirit guides are separate creatures that are not you. So, if you think you're therian, please ask yourself, is your animal side a separate being than you? I have seen a lot of people referring to their kintypes as completely different beings, giving them individual names and personalities. Even if you believe that you were xyz animal in a past life, you are still the same being as the animal you used to be. You're the same person, and nothing can change that.
But, if you still believe your "kin" is a different being than you despite reading this, than please, think on whether or not you're a therian. Of course, even if your spirit guide is not your kin, I have seen some people who have spirit guides who match the person's kintype, so don't feel completely off if you have a spirit guide.
I'm not sure if tis post made any sense or not, but thank you for reading.
