The happier this picture is, the more real and unbearable it is for me :(
After a long laugh, I stopped for a moment and realized it is a huge problem that has to be solved.
Some winning games came to my mind which I missed because of this stupid reason. Once I had a rook, knight and 2 pawns against a single rook, and get checkmated. Can you imagine? :(
I hate when people gather around my board and I'm stressed for it :(
I don't know how to overcome this. Are there any tips?
Is there anyone who has this problem or am I alone? :(
1- Play against pieces
2- Put ear plugs
3- Do not look around
I think my problem isn't about distraction but it's something psychological :(
anyway, thanks for the reply! :)
you're not alone! you're not alone! you're not alone! ))
It's really annoying especially when you know that they want you to lose lol.
I can definitely symphathize. But I am sure there are ways you can train psychology in day to day life, e.g focusing on a deep breath when stressed, or simply be aware of the feeling of what your inner state is.
There is a difference between being aware while stressed, and being overcome by stress.
