Mine started happening in 2016 once I reach the adult age. Suddenly the things I love suddenly left so empty. As if I have depression which I have. I’m still struggling with it. When I try to do the things I love it feels very forced. I cry time to time about how I can’t able to do the things I love because of it. I tend it to social media as ask is this actually normal at all. I’m slowly forcing myself to do my favourite hobby, I hope I finally get there. Where I used to love back to me.
I would probably say it's normal because sometimes we just get caught up in depression or we just simply move on.
When we suffer from depression and anxiety, it becomes very easy for us to get wrapped up in our feelings and start thinking about ourselves in terms of our disease. When you spend so many days feeling depressed, it’s only a small step to start thinking of yourself as depressed. Identifying ourselves with our feelings is a trap these diseases set for us, luring us into becoming self-fulfilling prophecies of doom. When we start thinking, “I’m so anxious” or “I’m so depressed,” we set ourselves up with the expectation that we’re going to continue to be this way. We then become too anxious to, say, get through a day of work without feeling anxious. We’re anxious about being anxious or depressed about being depressed, and that’s the way we think we’re going to continue to be
Yes, we as humans are so interested in new things and move on from the old. That goes with things, and people we love. Not always the case, but sometimes.
This is concerning and can be one of the many signs of a potential depression. You should be careful and pay more attention on your well-being from now on!
