The more I grow with my anxiety, the more I want to experience on my own

I have always relied on my parents for everything, and they have always been able to provide it, which I will forever be grateful, but there’s just days where I don’t really feel like interacting with anyone I live with, and not because I’m in a mood or anything, it’s just the energy I put into an interaction, is energy I’d rather spend on something else. I guess this is why I’m always out with friends, and if I’m not, I try to leave the house at least once, just to get some space.

Finding a hobby that keeps my mind and body active is a blessing I’ve been needing

If you’re having any sort of identity crisis or feelings of self-doubt, if there is something that you’ve been wanting to do, just start doing it. I know that sounds cliché but if it’s something that you think you’ll enjoy and you don’t know how to do it, look up videos on YouTube or articles on Google to help you get started with it. Keeping your mind active is an incredible way to keep yourself out of the darkness. I promise you, doing things you enjoy will make you proud of yourself even if you think nobody else is proud of you.

I want to want things

Keywords: want , desire , thoughts , levi , engaged

I do not know if I have always done this or if this has just started in the last ten years or maybe less. Something has shifted as I have become an adult paying rent and living on my own. I am more worried and sleep lighter; always on alert. I used to enjoy things, now those things are fewer and further between. I have always enjoyed the activities of those around me, even if I came to be the one leading them, but I am not quite sure which activities I love and which ones I have learned to enjoy because of my social circles. I don’t really like anime, but I was an anime club president for a year and if you would like to watch one I will absolutely watch it with you (“No, you’re right. It was pretty cool.”) I enjoy going out but not as much as I like a small group on the couch chatting and playing games with changing rules. I used to write and sometimes I would paint. I used to make cosplays and try Harry Potter inspired cupcake recipes. I used to sing and laugh at work. When did I become unhappy? When did I stop wanting to be happy enough that I did the things that made me happy?
