What To Do When You Don’t Feel Like Yourself?
It’s not horrible it’s very easy to stop feeling like yourself. Just forgot all negative thoughts. If you find yourself particularly down, don’t be afraid to just stop.
It doesn’t have to mean that you think less of yourself or the person who’s experiencing these feelings; it means that your life is going through a time in transition and those new emotions are trying to re-establish bonds with an old part of you.
You don’t have to see it or feel like you have “to do something” about it. Just stop when the transition is over and think back through your life experiences that come easily to you, so that they fill in all of those gaps between where things are now…and then change them into a happy memory while reminiscing.
It’s not me; I still attend my local game store every week (your mileage may vary on this, but it works for me). The key is coming to terms with the fact that what you used to know hasn’t been crushed. You just have a new way of knowing things and being aware of them.
I struggled immensely with college before that first semester ended in January 2007 . My class credits didn’t count; my dorm mates moved classes every 30 days (because they got kicked out) or their health completely changed on them leaving school early.
Why I Don’t Feel Like Myself
Since I had to drop out of college without a degree it has been hard for me. You can get frustrated with everything and feel that you are so far behind everyone else but there is no need to be upset or let bad things happen because they don’t matter as much anymore.
It doesn’t mean I hate my life, its just the way it happens sometimes in your life.
What won me at the time was an overwhelming sense of worthlessness; my life was over and I didn’t know what to do. I could feel the “Christmas tree” feeling in my chest, I would constantly check to see if I had puked or not. (Getting through this feels a lot like an out of body type experience).
Looking back now its almost funny but it wasn’t funny at all really. Its hard when you lose people that you cared about and can no longer get feedback from them because they are dead.
Do The Things What You Want
Don’t care about other people’s opinions. Keep your life simple, just focus on yourself.
All things will work themselves out (this is a very hard concept) If you do something that you aren’t proud of or even if it doesn’t matter to anyone else; then don’t be ashamed. Just move past it and keep doing what makes sense for you going forwards .
I also put my statement to on purpose for others: Start over take classes online, go back to the people you trust and start from there .
This is what worked the best for me. I found myself feeling more comfortable in going around with this structure than just trucking along due to lack of money or not enough sense about life after school , so I’m trying it out now. Wether its right or wrong who knows as its all.
Its okay to be sad, cry and get all emotional with yourself. This is a huge thing I had also fought against but by remembering that people who are much older than you have lived life before got what they wanted out of life their whole lives makes you feel so much better about your own existence (love having my siblings help me try it).
Just don’t let things overwhelm if its too big or bad on the outside because each day will take a toll on you within. Keep getting new things out of life by doing what makes sense for your needs and work with that.
Don’t try to strain yourself like this is a test or anything just be okay in the moment (this also means no judging anyone ever once).
Love yourself I know this seems contradictory to what I’m saying, but doing things for your own well being is the best thing you can do. Your happiness and future are up to you , so enjoy it throughout as long as its right. That will help everyone around them too!
Meditate About It
For me I need to be able to sit still for long periods of time so that my mind is at ease. Otherwise , anxiety and thoughts just get worse, but it forces you into a state where the world has slowed down completely .
I’m a huge science nerd and functional medicine wont explain other people’s experience or what works on one person in full as its too multi dimensional (imo).
Meditation makes practicing healthier habits really simple by being aware from the start , starts to take values out of the equation by providing your best frame so that you can see things clearer and make better decisions.
Be patient with yourself Just because I’m not very perfect doesn’t mean its so awful, every person has their own issues they overcome or don’t at times. Some people might have a harder time with something than others but we all go through different ways of coping it dosen’t matter exactly how hard encounters.
Let Go Of Toxic People
I’m not talking about the toxic people to you know be like if I turn down your help that last remark might seem nice at first but is actually hurtful, its hard because we want others to relate and find someone they can connect with.
But there is a phrase by our founder David Lynch “Art imitates life”. If this person acts differently than how RELATED TO SOMEONE ACTS then just get away from them .
Don’t try too hard to be good friends , I once had a terrible relationship for years because I thought if he did something way out of line than this would help change it. Well its not.
If you feel like your alone in the world Mingle, get off social media and remember that people care about each other we are all connected but only so far as our mind can imagine! Live … just live and have fun doing exactly what u love without remorse or worry.
Be the best you can be imo and focus on the things that make u happy, don’t let other people just ruin it for yourself in hopes they will feel better about their lives by having someone else’s life to look at positive or negative depending which way its working out more than anything.
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
I think we can all agree this goes with most of the things that are on my list. Get out there meet new people expand your awareness and be brave enough to not just watch a life its like being at dinner get up , introduce yourself asking about
‘I always wanted to learn how to dance”and then learning traditional lindy hop, it increases you self worth through body expression from movement as well as soul exploration by connecting you with others who have the same dreams and hopes as you.
Be comfortable in your own skin I think we all have to ask ourselves this question at some point “Can my new relationship with myself drag me down lower than where I am, is it better for us ?”
So make sure its what YOU want, not what wanted from others . If you feel like a bit of self care go out by yourself , dance when people are watching or even sing good.
Take A Social Media Break
Want more out of life but not sure how to go about it?One thing you can do immediately is ditch social media like snap chat and Facebook, instagram, twitter, if we are honest with ourselves on the impact they have had in our lives I would say its time to hit delete.
If done correctly by us alone or in groups doing this as a group…I think we all need this when people use Facebook as their diary. Sorry everyone around the world!
Find What You Makes Happy
We become so attached to own thoughts and people, changing jobs and having a new partner can make you feel like the sky’s fallen in as well it could be making that person happy or not. Do what makes YOU happy first avoid feelings of depression if alone or loneliness .
If its more than looking after yourself do something about it..and just remember I think we all bring our happiness on ourselves.
Take a break from social media if it causes you to be overwhelmed and going on your own. If not just try and keep yourself slightly topped up on this stuff off the internet as much as possible, we can all make ourselves feel better by being grateful with what we know of life. even though things change too quickly.
If we don’t set boundaries for ourselves the world will take over our lives. From having to much of a good thing in life, losing your alone’s and being constantly connected .
If you are unsure Whats my goal? question it! Ask yourself what is there that I absolutely hate about people not knowing by just starting but asking them lets keep some control or understanding on how things work.
Sometimes you have to just be yourself in a group full of people who are not. The world is so dynamic I think we need someone reliable, loyal and truthful always close at hand.
I also believe us humans don’t prefer being alone its more that rather than go into our self as usual or close the door if they see themselves as dependant even if it means no relationships dating…we may find ourselves needing this feeling again really soon.

What Is Wrong With Me?
It can be hard to tell if something is wrong when you don’t feel yourself. It can seem like nothing is wrong at the moment, but that’s not always the case. Helpful to ask yourself a few questions to determine what’s wrong. For example, does your body feel tense or sluggish? Are you feeling especially tired or irritable? If you still can’t figure it out, seek support from friends or family members. Remember, don’t self-judge – there might be a reason you’re not feeling your best.

People with this condition may feel as if they are not in control of their thoughts or movements. This can make everyday activities very difficult, and it can be hard to stay motivated.
Thankfully, there are treatment options available that can help you feel better. Some of these options include medication, therapy, and lifestyle changes. Make sure to speak to your doctor about your symptoms to start the best treatment for you. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out for support.

Soak up the love and acceptance others offer you and don’t let them go. Take some time for yourself each day – even if that means taking a bath or reading a book. And most importantly, know that you’re loved – no one can take that away from you.
