Thank you for playing Far From Noise Sean.
I’m going through that beginning adult phase in my life as a 21 year old where I know what I want, but the journey getting there just seems so long and overwhelming, that I kinda just shut down at the first sign of a struggle, and then I feel like shit after, like I failed or that I wasn’t strong enough to take the necessary steps I needed to get there. And like you said, taking that first step is always the hardest, and it is always very difficult for me to really push myself to start it, not even because of fear of failing the outcome, but just the long arduous journey that looms with the unknown.
Part of that is anxiety as well, and fear of hardships, and part of it is lack of real concrete motivation to start due to depression and the feeling of pure tedium. And it sucks because what I want to do is something so gosh dang exciting to me, but it isn’t like any other career. Acting is something that you have to keep pushing at throughout your life, and keep looking for new roles and opportunities. And I just get in this head space, like what you said, ‘what if I’m not creative enough?’ That fear keeps me from starting.
This is exactly the kind of game I needed right now, I’ve been dealing with a lot of very similar thoughts that this game discussed, and how this game explains dealing with them and how it gave some much needed advice in helping with my anxiety, such as to look outside of the situation, to breathe and just take in the moment also really helped.
And it helps me reflect a whole lot more, on really going out there and trying and when I do get overwhelmed to breathe and take small steps.
I dunno. I’m probably just rambling at this point, but I really appreciate you playing this game. Seriously. I love games like this and I hope to see more like it in the future.
