First things first. For once I feel hopeful!
– Edgar Roni Figaro, Final Fantasy VI
The story follows quite a dramatic arc, filled with fun and adventure, but some very terrible things happen in the course of the game. Tales of love that was lost, depression, powerlessness, separation, and even the near destruction of the world.
Maybe you are feeling a bit lost or hopeless. Edgar’s quote gives us a hint for how to get back on track:
First things first.
When life feels overwhelming or we have a hard time finding hope, focus on what you can do, right in front of you. Make sure you eat well, sleep well, and spend time with those you love.
Don’t worry about every detail, but focus on the one thing you can do right now to make your situation a little better. Take action each day, even if what you can do seems small or insignificant, it adds up.
Seeing results will give you hope. But even if you cannot see results right away, don’t give up. If video games can teach us anything, it’s the ability to persist in the face of challenge – and overcome.
You got this.
