If you need me, you'll know where I'll be.
I guess I’ll start using this again.
Recently, a few people I encountered in my life and also myself have been going through tough times. Once so happy, once so humble, are now saddened, depressed and don’t know how to express their feelings.
Even though people go through a hard time, they should not feel like they are alone. Trust me when I say this, but sometimes your friends and family are NOT going to be there, not for the fact that they don’t care, but they also have a life of themselves to take care of, and they don’t want to take on some of your problems themselves. I know it’s kind of a dick thing to say but i’m speaking the honest truth right now. Some people just don’t care.
When people aren’t there, people resort to other things. Sometimes things that are bad for them. Some resort to drinking themselves to sleep, some resort to doing drugs and other resort to doing the extreme.
Suicide. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.
I would be a liar if I didn’t say I didn’t have a lowest point of my life. I felt useless, broken and in deep depression. However, one thing helped me through it all, and if I were to feel that way again, I know they would be there no matter what. So how does one cope and deal with things in their life when people aren’t there?
My personal opinion, a devoted, long time hobby. My hobby? Starcraft.
It may not make sense to most people, and I don’t expect people to understand, but when people aren’t there to support others, I’ve noticed that people crumble under their feet and slip back into the state that they were previously in, and I believe i’m not the only one who’s noticed.
The reason I say that Starcraft is my hobby is because it will always be there for me when I just NEED something to turn to. I can learn new strategies, play a new race or have fun with the community with Arcade games, and its based on my decisions. Whether it’s a bad breakup, a bad grade or just a really shitty situation, hobbies don’t turn their back on you. No matter how much you were wrong, how much bad you did in your life, no matter the quality of character of the person, your personal and lifelong hobby will never judge you.
…but that also means that you shouldn’t judge others. Some people DO have it harder than you.
It’s not a complete, 100% foolproof way to treat it. I’m not a psychologist or have a Ph.D in Psychiatrics, but what i’m saying is that you’ll be surprised in how many people just rely on others to cure their problems when they cannot be there in the first place, so they have no backbone to deal with their problems themselves. That’s why I say instead of spending all that time rotting in sadness, depression and personal issues, invest all that time into a hobby.
Because no matter what, like I said before, It will never turn away from you. It will always be there
