It will make you blind you don’t know what is happing in your family your friends and in the outside world.
you playing and in 1 week you come out of your room and you know the world is ending now you are the only one left and a few more. What happens then.
How to Socialize?
you need to meet new people around you. if you don’t like your neighbor that’s another thing.
- Have you consider installing tinder and other dating apps- if you are young and you want that. I mean you can meet other people as weird as you are.
- go on a vacation to other places with your friend and tell them to invite his other friend that you don’t know. Now you can meet new people.
While playing Online games people often get stressed out easily. because they can’t get level up stuck in the mission. loss in-game died in-game, people take this very seriously. then they get stressed out (have you watch Ready Player) It’s based on the concept people get stress and taking steps they shouldn’t have.
- you need to understand the things the games will reflect in the real world. if you are playing games for the year, think about that what that game give you in the past year.
- stress will give you more stress – to avoid that you can cook, you can talk to someone. the best way that you write what you think you can do that on Reddit and quora anonymously nobody need to know who are you. this will give you relaxation of mind stress-free.
the worst feeling is this unsatisfying of a thing you work so hard and don’t get it. this is what happens in online games. you are playing the game and died middle of some mission and you have to start over, this kind of feeling makes you feel angry and you let the anger out on someone not intentionally.
So don’t do that
