Depersonalisation is an anomaly of self-awareness. It consists of a feeling of watching oneself act, while having no control over a situation. Subjects feel they have changed, and the world has become vague, dreamlike, less real, or lacking in significance. It can be a disturbing experience, since many feel that, indeed, they are living in a “dream”.
It is a prominent symptom dissociative disorders but also; anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, BPD, OCD and sleep deprivation.
~~~Some people feel depersonalisation with the use of cannabis and aim to get this feeling (I find that getting high can produce a similar feeling but with a lot less of the anxiety and fear that comes along with depersonalisation). The song comfortably numb describes it pretty well :)
Depersonalization is the third most common psychological symptom, after feelings of anxiety and feelings of depression.
"Individuals who experience depersonalization feel divorced from their own personal physicality by sensing their body sensations, feelings, emotions and behaviours as not belonging to the same person or identity. Often a person who has experienced depersonalization claims that things seem unreal or hazy. Also, a recognition of self-breaks down (hence the name). Depersonalization can result in very high anxiety levels, which further increase these perceptions. Individuals with depersonalization often find it hard to remember anything they saw or experienced while in third person."
Depersonalisation is a subjective experience of unreality in one’s sense of self, while derealisation is unreality of the outside world

talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
“Date someone who meets you half way. Date someone who brings you a glass a water when they get themselves one. Date someone who makes sure you don’t spend money on ridiculous things. Date someone your ex hates and your mom loves. Date someone who’d rather spend a Friday night watching movies, than out with 50 people they barely even talk to. Date someone who sleeps on your chest and leaves a little puddle of drool. Don’t date someone who makes you leave oceans of tears.”—At the end of the day it’s the little things.
