Paradoxically enough, one thing I dearly aspire to learn from the ‘gamer me’ is how to deal with reality.
Even if the stage is difficult, I admire how gamers firstly, accept it, and at the same time know that it is just a stage and there is surely a way to get through. The game’s not done yet and hence I cannot give up!
Most of our anxiety and therefore worries stem not from the troubles of reality but from the assumption that we are at some wrong level and the ‘what ifs’ that follow.
If only we could just breathe, accept and start working things out one mini-level at a time!
