I took time off. A long time off, about 2-3 years. Mostly because of my health problems, but also because I was mentally exhausted. I stopped working (I did pick up some jobs here and there, but it wasn’t busy like it used to be), stopped being creative, stopped talking to people. I watched many hours of lifestyle YouTubers cook, clean and gardening. Watched a lot of documentaries and movies. Watched many Korean tv dramas. Read many books. It's like one day I just decided to get off the conveyor belt, sat on the grass and watched the world went by. There were days I'd panic and jumped back onto the conveyor belt because everyone was moving ahead of me. But then I'd immediately get off when I recognized fear had taken over my head.
