I actually have a shirt that says. “I can’t adult today” It’s meant as a joke. But its something many of us with anxiety, depression or any mental illness feel quite often.
There are days where facing the world is just so scary. Going to pay bills seems like fighting a giant. It’s like we have no energy.
And it is not an excuse. There are so many people who say they don’t want to adult because they simply want to be carefree. I wish that is all that I wanted to do. Instead, I can’t adult today because I am just so exhausted from adulting the day before. Stressing about every little thing. Panic attacks that come from no where. Feeling like everything is my fault. Like I will only ever have bad karma.
Some days, I just don’t have the energy to adult.
