Anyone else afraid of the idea of being bored more than actually being bored? in General Discussion Posted August 2 I really am ready to stop gaming completely, and I have been winding down in terms of actual hours almost naturally. I also have been working on my career a lot. I just don't have the time like I used to. But here's also the thing - I just don't enjoy it much. I find a lot of other things more fulfilling. I don't even fear not having games in my life anymore. Oddly enough, the only thing that has been getting me recently is the idea of being bored. But when I become bored, I usually find that it's not nearly as bad as I thought it was in my mind. In my experience, accepting that at some point you will be bored is crucial. But here's the thing: it's not as scary as it sounds. Maybe for others it's completely different, but for me I found I somehow thought being bored was this awful unpleasant experience that I needed to avoid at all cost. I have relatively mild cravings, I think this is going to the last hurdle before I put gaming to rest for me. Obviously being bored isn't fun, but accepting that it won't kill you is also important. It's not good or bad it just kind of is. Kinda a random post, but I was curious if anyone else had similar experiences?
