I've put this in the mental health section because I have anxiety and pretty sure I have some form of depression. I find it extremely difficult to do my hobbies, I usually either force myself or spend hours just watching tv and then I don't feel that great. I used to love video games and to an extent I still do but I really struggle to play them for long and I'm pretty sure it's probably due to my mental health. For one, I have like a natural instinct that I want to put the tv on and watch things, it's like a security which makes it difficult to play console games. I got a new console not that long ago and I thought I'd play it a lot but I struggle most of the time. When I have forced myself to play it, I've felt better. Secondly, I feel like maybe it's partly where I can't be around family when I play games, especially console ones, one because of the concentration and two because all the consoles are in different separate rooms away from people. Also, some times I feel like playing games, especially really long console ones are a waste of life, which is stupid because they're fun and people need alone time and maybe even if you're not with people you love it doesn't mean that's a waste but it worries me. I really want to play games a lot more and enjoy them and the same with my other hobbies, just not sure how, any advice?

I know exactly how you feel. I used to love playing video games, but nowadays I tend to spend most of my time on the internet and it can be weeks apart and I won't even touch a video game. Although this may sound stupid, it makes me sad that even though I still have a glimmer of interest in them, I have no motivation to actually play them. I'm worried that it might be a similar thing with me and whether I may still be depressed. My friends all like playing video games and I do feel a bit left out that I have no motivation to play them, and I feel at odds with how much I used to love playing video games
I also feel like my interest in picking up and learning new hobbies has declined and I can't seem to focus on learning anything that I'm not already good at.
