Gaming, specifically massive multiplayer online roleplaying games (MMORPGS), was my drug of choice for years. Where else can I become a badass blue-skinned Draenei shaman who duel wields maces in one moment, or a night elf shadow priest who melts faces and offheals for raids of 15-40 people? Gaming has been a gift and a curse for many, including myself. With our culture's increased use of technology, there may be a need to address the reality of internet and gaming addiction. Seeking balance can be an important aspect of any behavior, even one that gives so much joy and creative beauty.
It can be a great escape when life becomes too stressful, or a chance to be a hero or villain one's always wished of becoming, and it can also help bring people across the globe together for a unified cause. It may be difficult for non-gamers to understand how important gaming can be to many.
I offer coaching that is gamer-affirmative.
This approach acknowledges that gaming is an essential part of a person's life. There are real memories created with real people, and the investment of time is very important in honoring when talking about gaming. It is not just a hobby. It can be a person's lifeline to the outside world, a chance to process issues, and/or opportunity to spark creative exploration.
