I’m 29 and live alone. This is actually my first year living alone and that freedom is something I’ve always dreamed of having. But as of these past few months, I haven’t been able to get myself to do anything productive on my days off from work. I have aspirations late at night that I’m going to accomplish so many things, and once I wake up and get the day started, I get tired and decide there’s no reason to go out. Not leaving the house and sitting around doing nothing all day is not only extremely exhausting, but it makes me feel like every day off is wasted before I return to my stressful job again. I don’t really have a group of friends to see, so I don’t have a social outlet. It doesn’t help that I’m an extreme introvert.
That was a mouthful–does anyone else experience these same struggles? I won’t argue that I’m not depressed but it’s not like I’m mopeing all day. I just simply can’t bring myself to do the things I’d love to do.
What can I do to get myself out of this vicious cycle? I’d appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
