GrainSiloEnthusiast 313 Posted October 13, 2022 Author Share Posted October 13, 2022 Been having genuine cravings lately. Catching myself very frequently daydreaming about how I'd build a new island in animal crossing, houses I would build in the Sims, flips I would finish in house flipper... Etc. It is a good thing that the games I crave are creativity based and not just completely pointless grind types (which I have played my fair share of... Fantasy Life is a good example... Not craving that one in particular even tho it was one of my favorite games.) I'm not sure what's wrong. I have been doing all the activities I wanted to replace gaming with, and frequently. I've been doing a daily gratitude list exchange. I don't watch gaming streams or anything. I'm around my wife when she games sometimes but she doesn't play any of the games I'm craving. Not gaming has given me so much, I don't understand why I'm having these cravings. Maybe it's the changing of the seasons. I associate summer with detoxes, winter with going back to gaming. We still own the consoles, we haven't sold them yet. I can't sell them on my own I need my wife's help. I'm afraid of repeating what happened last time I sold them... Going out and buying more when I inevitably went back to gaming. Maybe I miss the sense of control? It would be nice to have a "house" of my own to actually decorate as I want and keep minimal and tidy. Our real house is so ugly and I've done about as much as I can on my own and with our very limited funds to make it better. Things are so much better than they used to be... but the reality is that I live in someone else's house that's got a ton of problems with someone else's crap and there's not much I can do about that. And I'm blessed to live here. We live in an extremely safe, beautiful neighborhood. We have a roof over our head at all, most people in our financial situation aren't that lucky. I hate how much I worry about the stupid things like aesthetics when I am objectively so lucky to be in the situation I am in. But I don't think that's 100% of the issues. I have no idea how to deal with any of this other than grit my teeth and sit on my hands. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
