My Mood: Pensive
I used to have a gaming addiction. Mostly came out of boredom since I never felt the motivation or courage to hang out with other people, or even work on personal stuff because I'm afraid of failing or not being good enough. I would play MMOs almost 12 hours a day, only getting up to eat or use the bathroom, striving for some sort of human connection -- but ofc it pales in comparison to real human interaction.

I got bored of it eventually. I became too frustrated with how unfulfilling it felt. So I just switched to youtube videos and binging TV shows. And now I feel like I'm getting bored of that, and I'm switching over to just researching stuff and posting online all day. It's not good. I know it's not healthy, but I feel like I can't do anything else or I'll start thinking too much and face the pain of loneliness.

So I keep distracting myself.
