Yesterday I was doing research for an article about internet and video games.
I found a lot of information on how internet has shaped not only every aspect of our lives but the gaming industry.
While writing the draft, a thought came to me and I was inspired to pause for a second and write to you. So I’m posting this today.
I think it’s fantastic and wonderful how the world is changing to allow everyone to be who they want to be. I mean it is now possible for gamers to be recognized as esports athletes and that’s actually a real thing.
There are major esports leagues that sponsor professional players. They can make a career out of playing video games and participating in tournaments.
Prize pools are worth millions of dollars. Ain’t that crazy?
I believe that’s how it should be for everyone. Everybody should be encouraged to be who they feel they are deep inside and follow what resonates most with them.
I mean gamers used to be made fun of for enjoying videogame so much.
Now they make more money than a blue collar worker playing on Twitch.
With that being said, here’s what I encapsulate from the research.
People will always make fun and ridicule you for being different than them. But, If you are capable to stick to your gut feelings, you will eventually win.
Never change to fit in the world. Let the world change and catch up to you.
If you’re one of those people that nobody understands, please stay unique. The uncool always turns out to be the coolest.
