Giving Up College Football

I’ve kinda given up on college football and a few other sports. Not because my teams aren’t winning but because of the emotional investment I really don’t have to give. Somehow there are other things I’d rather celebrate or enjoy at the moment. Maybe it’s a seasonal thing.

  1. Good on you. I’ve also had moments when I realized that I’m becoming overly occupied with something and that it’s not worth my time. Making a mental effort to reduce obsessive preoccupations gives me more time to do things that are more meaningful to me.

    It’s an ongoing effort, as new things will come to distract me.

      1. I think it’s good do disentangle your self esteem from sports. After all, if you are just a spectator, the team’s performance has nothing to do with you. I mean, it’s just some folks who don’t know you playing a game. Nothing wrong with being happy or sad for them, but it really doesn’t reflect on you as a fan.
