“Just remember that bad times are just times that are bad”
My favourite quote comes from a video game that I’ve played for many, many years now; Animal Crossing. I remember getting the original game on my Gamecube all those years ago, and now I am still addicted playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf [ACNL] on my 3DS.
If you aren’t familiar with the Animal Crossing [AC] games, you are basically a little human in a village of animals. Typically you can have up to 10 villagers at a time living with you [espically in ACNL] and you get to decorate the little village you live in, your own home, and collect items for it, clothing to change how you look etc. The villagers all have their own personalities, and some of them are really cute. You can do fishing and bug hunting, you can grow fruit to eat and sell… the possibilities are endless really.
It is a quote that I try to remember when I am having a bad day, not to turn it into a bad week. With my anxiety at the moment that is a very easy thing to do, my mood sometimes will spill into the next day and the next if I cannot control it. I have this written down in a few places so when I see it I remember.
I know a few people who do not understand how video games help people, but for me, it is a time to zone out and relax. I get drawn into the game, I start to feel relaxed and whatever happens within it, I know I can control that and have fun!
