Weird alien feeling

Recently I resolved a conflict that really just deprived me and made my anxiety and depression worse than it already was. Since then, I've felt nothing, as if my body is empty. I no longer reside rage and sadness. It's so weird because I'm so used to these emotions that no that they're gone, I don't know what to feel. I should feel happy right? Or at least content with my life now but I don't know. I'm not saying I want to go back to being totally down and angry but I don't understand why I'm not as happy as I expected to be since my conflict is now resolved 🤔

Hi, If you have had this conflict for a long time, it could be that your mind and body need to get used to the new you. If that conflict caused you to spent a lot of time and effort worrying or ill it might be that you need something to fill that time.

Maybe you need to celebrate the end of the conflict. When I resolve an issue I do something to celebrate. Might just be putting on a happy song, or writing about it in my journal or treating myself but I do something to recognize my success.

Take care and well done on resolving your conflict.


Hi, I'm no expert, but I would think that your mind has gotten used to feeling bad. It will probably take a little time to get it on the right track again. Keep drilling it on the resolved problem. Hoping you get to feeling happiness again real soon.
