Is There Something Wrong?
I hear all the time that those who lock themselves in their homes are anxiety-riddled messes and need tons of therapy to get out into the world again. So I wonder if there is something wrong with me.
If I didn’t have to go to the market, I could easily spend all of my time in my apartment over the weekends. I have food in here. I can reach out to family and friends if need be. I have a home gym. So I don’t have to leave my apartment. In fact I prefer not to leave the manse.
But I don’t think I’m an anxiety-riddled mess. Sure I have some low-level anxiety that comes from living in this hypercapitalist American state, although I am doing much better than a lot of folks. When I do leave my apartment, I am fine being in public. I do schedule vacations to get away and travel. So I don’t think it’s all that unhealthy that I stay in. Right?
I guess there may be some flags raised that I don’t want a partner, don’t want kids, and love living by myself. But that doesn’t bother me. It may bother others, but I’m fine.
So no. I guess there is nothing wrong here. Of course, who knows if I am in severe denial?
