This is 100% normal, don’t worry. It’s actually a seasonal depression for most people, like myself. Just know that you’re not alone.

yeah i know. Seasonal Affect Disorder. It’s suspected to be caused by a lower amount of sunlight. Because my part of the earth is further away from the sun, we don’t get as many of the light waves that are needed to trigger the brain to produce Melatonin (a chemical which makes us happy).
