It has been a while since I posted an article here so this is my first in a while. This one will focus on how lockdown and the corona virus has affected the mental health of my fellow teens. I personally write this from my own exp. Feel free to Share share yours at the end of the article.
Loneliness: personally, it is understandeable, no more time to hang out with your friends and you only communicate via text so you feel like your friends may not enjoy talking to you anymore or they have found other interesting people to talk to. Personally, I’m sick of it and I miss my friends. Don’t tell them that.
Anxiety: It seems ridiculous to get anxiety when everyday seems the same when you’re cooked up but one’s mind is a scary place and when left to think alone, it can wonder into some dark places. I often thought about how the World would end and how unfulfilling my life has been. I kept on thinking that maybe I blew my life.
Sadness: You may end up waking up to dark days, feeling like your entire world should end right now or that you are a burden but don’t let that get to you. Don’t give up.
Basically, the lockdown ended up making feel so depressed. I felt like I was a worthless burden that wouldn’t matter if I was gone but I realized that was not true when I got into new hobbies and especially this blog, it has been a light in my dark world.
