How can I help myself not feel guilty for having me time/alone time?
I use to feel really guilty for the long hours I spent in my room drawing, doing hw, or relaxing (I'm more of an evening friends/family socializer) . anyway, I really need that time to myself. I've explained this to my parents before, and they've assured me that it's fine after they understood, and I've been fine. However, last Sunday, even though my I already told my dad I had to work on a project, he asked me if I could watch the Super Bowl. idk why it irrated me so, but to cool off, I went back stairs for a drink. my dad said "I'm bored-could you stay downstairs?" since then, (which is ridiculous) I've felt guilty for being in my room. it makes me anxious and me time not so enjoyable. My heart pounds, and I feel panic-y and rushed. I need to finish a drawing for a friend-as a surprise, and have an essay due soon. I cannot be consumed with guilt, but can't help but feel bad-like I'd feel bad if someone was bored and wished I wasn't busy in my room. it doesn't make any logical sense that I feel this way-but somehow, I cannot reason with myself. it's like I'm hard wired almost, to feel guilt and to care too much. it's so debilitating. I need to let go and not feel guilty. Help? (I know it's silly-especially since it was a while ago-don't know what's wrong.)
