It’s a weird thought: how can you ever not feel like yourself? You’re always being yourself, so how come sometimes you just feel like you’re not?
I’ve gotten to know myself over the years and know that I’m generally very happy, positive, and motivated to always work on something. And then there are times where I’m not myself. I’m not happy, or positive, or motivated at all and I lose all sense of my personality for a long while – and I know I’ll get it back but it’s not always the easiest, there’s a lot of work to make it feel like all pieces of the puzzle are in place to make that happen.
Recent lockdowns and quarantine have not helped at all. Usually I can get back out into the world and make myself whole again by exploring new things, trying to visit new places, motivating myself to write more about the world out there. This year, disrupting my life and making me feel stuff got me to lose sight of life and I don’t know that I could do that for much longer, because this lifestyle is hard on anyone.
I don’t know when I’ll get back to feeling like myself again, but I’m working on getting it under control so I can make the most out of life.
Anyone else feeling like this lately?
