A while back in 2007, I wrote a post called “The Three Layers of Self-Awareness,” which you can find here. It basically discussed how to shift the way you think about yourself and your mental health. I’ve also written a number of other things about this topic, so I thought it would be a good idea to share them with the blogging community.
I don’t know if you saw one of the links above, but I think it should be in the header of the main page. That should be the top of the page.
I feel this is a problem with some of our society, especially with our educational system. People who have been in special education for as long as I have are often the first to go through the first layer of self-awareness. They often try to hide their problems behind a mask of being smart, well-behaved kids. They never acknowledge that they are suffering from severe mental illness.
This is a problem in our society because we have to deal with a mentally ill person in our society in order to deal with a person who is mentally ill. The only way to deal with someone who is mentally ill is not to deal with that person.
I think we’ve all been there at one point or another. We are all a little bit self-aware and we try to hide it behind a mask of being smart, well-behaved kids. It’s so easy to assume that if we aren’t acting like a kid in a video game, then we’re not acting like a kid at all. I don’t know about you, but I think a lot of us feel that way sometimes.
You should try not to act like a kid in a video game. You should act as a kid online. Especially when you are on the internet.
One of the things that I loved about the old days of gaming was that you were able to feel like a kid and do the things that you thought were cool. Playing a game like CTF (Citizens of Thule) was a lot of fun, as was watching my grandfather teach us his games at home. But nowadays, it seems like these things just happen to be the norm. If you arent playing a video game, you are not really a kid.
Yeah, that’s not exactly true. You can still be a kid online, but you will most likely be doing far more than just playing video games. You will probably be blogging more, you’ll probably post on Facebook and Twitter more often, and you’ll probably be posting things that have absolutely nothing to do with gaming at all.
Just because you arent really a kid doesnt mean you arent a kid, or that you have no right to make other people play games that they dont want to. The thing is, the most common reason people turn to gaming is to escape, and escape from what is often a life of chronic stress. There are many types of stress that can get people to gaming, the least common of which is boredom.
We know that games can get you out of a stressful situation and away from your daily stresses, but they have become so popular because they are so easy to find. The trouble is that they arent always easy to find.
