Today I am feeling sad. Faced with uncertainty in my employment which could also perhaps affect my living arrangement while other stuff such as the situation in my country is leaving me with mixed feelings. I also feel about this with The Sims, the one thing that has propped me up over the past 17 years.
But we always show cute fun things from The Sims but less of the sad stuff so today, rather than going on about how bad my life is, let's show pictures of the darker side of The Sims. Moments that made us feel sad, angry or disappointed, real emotions from a game that is more than just plumbobs, pink flamingos and lawn gnomes:
Witnessing someone you love being with someone else hurts
Seeing a vulnerable woman being taken advantage of and left to bring up a baby alone is not a nice sight
Seeing someone getting bullied is sad
Nothing hurts more than seeing two friends stop becoming friends. This picture is heart-breaking to look at
And then there is this where you try to act normal but inside you do not feel yourself
Feel free to share more pictures of sadness from The Sims and remember that our lives are not always as bad in comparison
