It annoys me how people start to ‘worry’ about you if you are not in a relationship or single for a long time. Like yo only have value when you are with someone. The fact that someone desires you and finds you interesting to stay with you suddenly makes a huge impact on your friends and family likie “Wow, look they evolved. New stage of life is reached.” It is almost like someone is less of a person when they are “alone” and like to keep it that way. I doubt there is more people in a relationship than singles to be honest. But appararently only this matters.
Cyber-psychologist Berni Goode talking about Flow on Charlie Brooker’s How Videogames Changed the World.
Flow is extremely important. So, so important.
It’s what keeps some people sane. It’s what drives the world’s most skilled and accomplished athletes, the most intense gamers, the hardcore hobbyists, even many of the most talented artists, musicians and actors - flow is what you get when unstoppable drive meets an unflinching will and unlimited dedication.
Flow is being utterly, truly “in the zone”. And it’s one of the most amazing feelings there is.
This is why finding a sport, or a hobby, or a martial art, or a handicraft, or a new video game, or any skill-based activity that uses focus and requires practice and repetition is so beneficial for things like depression and anxiety and overall mental/physical well-being.
Colored some twitter sketches from yesterday!
