When life steals your lemons… steal them back?

265 - Oval limeswow, rough week! I’ve definitely taken hits left and right. I have decided though to just keep a smile on my face, and not let it get to me. There is nothing I can do, and worrying about something you dont have control over solves nothing. I don’t really want to get into the specifics of what is going on, because it’s quite personal, but just know that life isnt treating me with kid gloves. So, my question to you is, “How do you deal with stress?” I deal with it in 2 ways. I either focus intently in something (like video games, or work) or I buy stuff. When I’m stressed, and I go to a store and just buy something, whether its a cheap nicknack or an expensive game, I just feel better. Yeah, its definitely my materialistic side coming out, but it helps. It also helps to focus on something really deeply, like a video game or my web design business. I just don’t want to think about the problem at hand, and would just prefer to be distracted. That is why I enjoy video games and books. They provide an outlet where I can enter a different world, and not think about my issues. You might call it escapism, but I just plain call it life. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be playing borderlands.
