Thoughts In My Room: A series by Endangered Youth ; inspired by self-isolation, loneliness, and existential thoughts.
Sometimes the outside world seems too overwhelming. It can feel like something is physically preventing you from moving, like there’s nothing worth getting out of bed for, like there is too much to do, or as if the world is too loud or you don’t belong. Shame, obligations, work, school, or relationships can make you want to sit out of everything. When you’re feeling and thinking these things, it makes sense that you would want to stay in your room or that you’d feel unable to get out of bed.
Isolation, exhaustion, and lack of motivation or interest in life are common experiences of individuals struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. Almost everyone experiences these to some degree. Hearing this doesn’t always help or make things feel easier, however.
Even if the negative thoughts and sensations feel like the only thing in the world right now, know that eventually they do pass. You don’t have to feel guilty for having a very human experience or struggling. Sometimes the very best we can do is get through one minute at a time under the blankets in our rooms.
