I don’t find it excusable since I do know I should be getting out and doing what I want without mental illness holding me back. But I do find it understandable. There are days when I just can’t handle the anxiety of everything and have to hide in my room.
Maybe try thinking of a special treat or reward you can get for yourself if you go out and see if that motivates you? Or maybe try breaking your routine down into small steps and celebrate your accomplishments along the way :)
