Angry feeling a mixture of bad stuff - August 30th 2018, 10:54 PM

I sometimes get this feeling, and I'm getting it now -- this weird feeling of like, unease and guilt and restlessness. I don't know if these are the exact words to describe it but it's really hard to because it's just this mixture of various emotional gunk lobbed into this on feeling. I'll feel it when I'm particularly emotional, when I'm bored, when I'm not focused on anything in particular, or when I AM but I'm not properly invested in it; I guess it's always shadowing me and manifests itself in some moments more than others. I think it kind of follows me around and most of the time it's very mild (but nevertheless constant), so I can be going about my day and I get this small feeling that something is just slightly "off". Like, imagine watching a movie and the audio is every so slightly out of sync from the visuals, and you're sure that something isn't right but you're actually NOT sure about it but it still feels kind of wrong... that kind of feeling.

And most of the time I can't link the feeling to any specific event or emotional issue I'm having, because it just feels like I'm feeling the emotional response to ALL of my worries and insecurities and issues. Kind of like my emotional mind has pulled all of my issue-strings together and tied them in this one knot of emotion.
So when I ask myself, "why are you feeling this way" I can't think of a clear answer, it's just these abstract snippets of feelings and contexts and worries which jump out and then melt back into this feeling.

I guess I'm just wondering how normal or abnormal this is, like should I really pay attention to it with the view of potentially bringing it up as an issue, or should I just live it and let it go ?

Paying attention to it can be helpful but definitely bring it up with someone if it's getting in the way of your quality of life. You said there is sometimes a restless feeling; does that lessen when you do things? If there's anxiety or restlessness in your mind it might help to keep on the move as much as you can so you're not thinking about it as much.

Sometimes when I get overwhelmed, I feel like all of my thoughts and feelings get put into one blob and then I can't pull out anything in particular because it's all stuck. You mentioned not being able to pinpoint anything which is why I'm mentioning this (because I can relate a little). Even if you can't pull anything out, it might help to observe yourself and document any thoughts or things that do come up, even if it is small.
