I am fairly stressed out most of the time because of people, and no, they are not doing anything to aggregate the stress, but it’s because of me that this stress manifests and becomes its own entity. A good example would be stressing about my younger brother’s FAFSA and how he is consistently tardy with submitting and replying to his college’s financial aid questionnaires—this stresses me the fuck out. Is it wrong to compare this phenomenon to a videogame? I feel like I am inside a videogame when hairy situations happen to other people that I have no control over (I have been playing too many emotionally-invested point-and-click adventure games from Tell Tale). Regardless, I have to practice being more level-headed.
