Everyone has a guilty pleasure. You’re lying if you say you don’t. Not everyone brags about it unless they want attention brought to themselves, or else it wouldn’t exactly be our “guilty” pleasure. Mine happens to be videogames. RPG’s (Role-playing games) to be exact. Anything that I can plunge myself into a world different from my own.
My own world. Where I am not me. An escape.
Like in Skyrim, I am the Dragonborn, slayer of dragons. Metal Gear, I am a totally B.A. guy who could kill a Russian in seconds without looking back. I am no longer Renny, boring 19 year old with no money, no college background, no boyfriend. It makes the days bearable.
In our own way, we like to escape life’s many difficulties. Whether it be hardcore workout sessions, ice cream, MMORPGS(Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, Such as W.O.W.), trashy T.V shows or unhealthy things like hard drugs. We aren’t proud, but we do it anyway? We should instead consider finding people and friends to lean on. We are only human, we search for what is easy.
