Sometimes I don't feel real. Like I don't have a personality, and real motivations, or desires or anything that I didn't take from someone else to fit in. Sometimes it even feels like I'm not even present within myself, like I'm watching my life play out from afar. Ive had a lot of mental breakdowns over it and I don't know what triggers this feeling or why i even have it. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar?

Hey, rando123, welcome to the forum. I haven't personally, but I'm sure other people here can relate to that. Have you been diagnosed by a therapist/MH professional at all?

No therapy is not an option for me currently unfortunately.

Do you feel like dissociation happens? Feeling: A sense of being detached from yourself and your emotions. A perception of the people and things around you as distorted and unreal. A blurred sense of identity. ?
