Sometimes gaming just isn’t fun. People can make you feel like you’re not good enough, or it may just be that you don’t meet your own expectations. Either way, feelings of anxiety and inadequacy can make you act in a way that is either uncharacteristic of your normal self or in a way that is not socially acceptable.
Dealing with the emotions caused by the games we play is a very real problem, but we at Love Thy Nerd exist, in part, to offer hope, peace and a positive way to manage the pressure of life that we all feel, and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
