I need to play video games.

My dad tells me I need to stop playing video games all the time. If I told my dad the reason for why I need to play video games, he'd refuse to believe me and think I was making it up but the truth is, yes, I need to play them. When I was a kid, I would play video games like most kids do because it was fun. However, as I got older, I started turning to video games not for fun but as an escape. While in school, I was relentlessly bullied and the teachers and my parents did nothing about it. I was physically, verbally and emotionally abused at home. I have been talked down to by others. I would be blamed for things I never said or did and would never be believed no matter how many times I stuck to the truth. At my job, I'm constantly pressured not just by my managers but, often I find myself getting into a heated argument with customers. To me, video games are a way of escaping from the pressures and demands of my life. A chance to escape from reality. To forget about the world around me and experience a moment of actual relaxation and comfort even if it's only for a brief moment of time.
