I am just writing this because i feel in my heart to encourage everyone to remember their priorities in life. Garry's mod and and other games are fun and all but it should only be seen as a hobby, in my opinion once it starts becoming a "chore" or more of a priority to you than life (School, IRL friends and relationships, Personal Commitments and health) then it is a problem. I let SWRP and other videos games take over my life and i got too committed to it, almost like an addiction and i 'lost myself' and it started affecting my IRL tasks and relationships, I've come to my revelation when it was too late where my GF dumped me (Good riddance though), and i was so far behind my University work and i wasn't looking after my physical health. Hence why i decided to Step down as Shock CO and limit my game time and im now making sure that im up to task with everything important in my life before i engage with my hobbies like gaming.
My point is that i want everyone to make sure you're looking after yourself, make sure life comes first. School/Work, Relationships, Family & Friends, Mental & Physical health, and personal commitments should always come first before gaming, as much as it is enjoyable trust me. I am now 20 and i have decided to 'Grow up' and focus on me, and i encourage everyone to put themselves first. If you're struggling with something i promise you there will always be someone there for you, just reach out.
