Has anyone else here gone through a period where you genuinely feel like you aren’t the same person you were before?
I’m at the tail end of that phase right now and I think I figured out why it happened, but it’s the most frustrating of hopeless situations. I felt like I wasn’t even in the real world anymore, I was just living in my own head and watching the days go by. My entire existence consisted of worrying about who I really was, what I should be doing, what I’m missing, what I pay too much attention to, the self-doubts just wouldn’t end. You want to help get yourself out of that mindset, but YOU are the problem in the first place! I feel in those situations you’re at the complete mercy of those around you and random happenings in your day-to-day life, it’s all you’ve got left when your own mind turns against you. If you don’t have someone to smack some sense into you, and you aren’t relying on the outcome of some sort of upcoming event, climbing out of that mental hell you’ve fallen into is nearly impossible.

I feel like I am a shell of the person I used to be
I was someone who cared about myself, now I don't. I feel like I am going through the motions but not really living life the way I used to.

[@475335,AlienMindLink] I understand how awful it is to just go through the motions, you feel very powerless like everything that isn’t you has more control over yourself than you do.

So you used to do things for yourself, but you don’t anymore? So you more or less just stopped doing the things that you used to have fun doing?

[@475335,AlienMindLink] btw if you want we can talk privately, I have zero clue how much public self-disclosure you’d be alright with
I encountered the Christian faith 4 years ago and have grown so much.... Dude after everything I've been through I don't even recognize myself in the mirror anymore

[@602555,DylanEbat] Religion does have great use for stuff like that, but I'm way past that. I gave it a shot, but it's not quite what I'm looking for.
