Can video gaming really be a disorder? Are the stereotypes of gamers true? What’s underneath excessive gaming? Boonie and Rachel tackle these topics and also share some of their personal experiences with video games and people who love them.
“It’s never really about the game.”
“Instead of us blaming the thing, maybe we can step back … to think of the person when they were growing up.”
“Sometimes when we enter a game looking for something outside our reality, we may actually find reality staring us right in the face.”
“Be open to something else, but don’t feel ashamed about being stuck right now.”
