Wellness Tool #20: Online Games

Online video games have been a coping skill since I was young. Regardless of the game, these online spaces allowed for communication on the grounds of when I wanted to speak to others with no pressure to respond immediately. A win for an introvert like myself who has found over the years to be better able to meet and socialize online versus in a physical face to face setting. Not only do these online games create space to interact and meet people while working on a group goal, they also provide a room for socialization with people from all reaches of the world allowing me to better understand different cultures and customs.
