I drew these sketches today. I was trying to express how it feels when I have the time and space to research my interests, listen to music, talk with the people I'm close to, play video games, and be myself versus the times when I am operating outside in the world at school or work. I don't feel anxiety because I'm worried about what people will say - I just feel like my soul is getting snuffed out. I know that I can't pursue my hobbies and interests all the time, but I think it's probably not normal to feel like my identity is being poked/pressured/destroyed in the midst of every day experiences. Or is it normal?
