Today I’m gonna be answering “why do I get angry when I lose at games?”
Video games, we all played them growing up.
Some of us still play today.
Video games are a great escape from everyday life.
For a lot of people it’s their favorite form of entertainment.
Why do i get angry when i lose at games
You most likely get angry when losing at video games because you have suppressed emotions. That and low self esteem. They also take competing seriously. If you use your available resources then you’ll have a better outlet to release stress. One of the best outlets can be a new hustle.
In an article written by Kabir at healthygamer.gg they believe as well that suppressed emotions can show after the results of a game.
When you’re playing games, it’s a release.
When you have a meltdown, you had a situation earlier at some point that’s just now resurfacing.
You’re using video games as your escape.
And that could be fine, but learning how to have less attachment to the result is more important.
It’s kind of a hard tactic to apply.
In fact it’s gonna take some practice.
But you’re gonna be way happier in the long run if you use it right.
