March 2023:
For the last 3 years, this game was too much of a reminder of my ex for me. I should get down on my knees & give thanks that the Tekken8 trailers are triggering nostalgia, instead of triggering resentment and PTSD aftershocks 🫣. Tekken7 convinced me to buy my first gaming console, since middle school, to bond with my gamer gf. I absolutely wasn’t ready for her to show me her own “Rage Drive” (more people should talk about how domestic abuse is statistically higher in lgbt relationships)

@Tbag2332 Thanks so much for writing this. your message made me smile, it reminded me that I’m not alone. I remember my first encounter with T7. My ex’s friend had a 60” tv mounted on the wall, and when I tried playing, I chose Alisa (the Android) who became my my main (before I even knew what word meant in the FGC). I don’t make friends quickly, and I too thought the people that played this with me would be lifelong friends as well. My ex tried to kill me, and after that Near Death Experience, I don’t see the world in the same way. Now I believe that everything happens for a reason. My guardian angels knew that codependency had brought me into that relationship with a friend of almost 5 years who I also worked with as a creative collaborator. I was too insecure to walk away, so I’m glad I learned to stand up for myself, even though I paid a huge price (I’m worth it though lol!). I hope you feel like you learned from your own T7 days, and it’s no longer a cause to ruminate. If it is, I get it: I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, but tbh, I felt stupid being emotionally stuck on a 2 year relationship for 3 years+ 🙃. It’s taken so long because that relationship brought up so many unresolved issues that had piled up within me. That’s another reason I believe everything happens for a reason. Heartbreak is a great teacher. I wish you wellness

@gang_of_kites I was fourth in my state as a feng Wei main and was so proud of it, I love Tekken but I am so split on getting into 8 because of the amount of dedication and practice it takes. Makes no time to play other games that’s also a factor as to why I stopped playing.
