For a long while, I have had to do a bit of soul-searching as a gamer. Games are supposed to be fun, right? Games should bring you entertainment and all that jazz … However, my “main” game for the past four years, League of Legends, became anything but that at a certain point.

The moment I found myself being more agitated, stressed and even infuriated by League, the more I came to accept that it was probably my No. 1 source of all the negative feelings a human being shouldn’t have to endure on a daily basis, at least when it came from something that should make me happy.

And boy, I certainly wasn’t happy with League on many given days. It was always one thing or another. No matter if I was trying to play a “just for fun” match or something more serious with the game, I kept finding a boatload of reasons and (often illogical) excuses to rage.

It got downright unhealthy and unpleasant. I will admit I relied on League heavily as an outlet for excess emotions, but I think League was definitely spawning more bad feelings than getting rid of them. The balance definitely wasn’t there.

After a while, I just told myself that I needed an actual break from League. I am not saying I am quitting it cold turkey at this point by any means, but this was a really tough decision for me as a gamer.

The 54th Deadline: Wild Card

Standard


————————————————————————————————————–
The 54th Deadline: Life is a series of chances to achieve something by a given point. You might very well miss out on opportunities if you are not careful. However, I firmly believe that God gives us plenty of means to find our way, even if we mess up here and there. After all, life demands deadlines. Try and try again until your goals and dreams are realized. Strive to finish on a successful note with whatever you set out to do. Always.

If people are like cards in this elaborate game of life, then I am no doubt a wild card.

My value is ambiguous. My purpose is further shrouded in unpredictability. Regardless, I am cool with this.

Other people are more obvious about what they bring to the table. They already know what they represent as cards and nothing more.

When it is a non-wild card’s turn to be played, they contribute toward life in some way and that’s that. They fulfill their respective role in the name of the game.

However, as a wild card, my time to shine isn’t so obvious. It isn’t apparent until all the other pieces are in play. And then, and only then, will everything make sense.

I’ve been gradually changing my attitude about everything. I don’t see the world in the same light as I did even just a few years ago.

My parents brought me up with the notion that hard work pays off, and this is something I do hold dear to my heart. However, I never really factored in the COMPETITION in life that has become way too obvious and apparent. Sometimes, to get ahead, you really need to be BETTER than everyone else.

Your peers.

Your friends.

Your “rivals.”

EVERYONE else. Continue reading
