You have noticed a change and it’s not necessarily a positive change. Your concerns should not be ignored. It’s unusual and concerning to feel emotionally unstable.
It is advisable to consult an in-person therapist who will analyze the potential problem and develop a plan for treatment. They are experts in emotions, thoughts and behaviors. They will know if something is wrong. They can explain why you are feeling the way you do. There is likely an explanation for why your feelings have changed. A therapist will know how to help.
You mentioned that you are watching videos that are meant to invoke a particular emotion. I’m wondering what videos you’re watching. Perhaps you are describing a certain type of numbness or apathy which could indicate depression or anxiety. It’s difficult for me to know without much more information. That is why it is wise to consult a local expert who can facilitate a solution to this problem.
When it comes to mental health, it’s always better to be proactive than reactive. You have noticed that something has changed and it worries you. The time to act is now. Thank you for your question. Good luck and please take care.
