The feeling of being disconnected from your world.
Depersonalization and derealization are two psychological conditions that can cause a person to feel disconnected from their own identity and the world around them.

Derealization is a feeling of detachment from the environment. People may feel like the world around them is not real, or that they are living in a dream-like state. They may also feel like they are disconnected from their surroundings, or that they are living in a different reality.
Depersonalization and derealization can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma. They can also be caused by certain medications, such as antidepressants, or by recreational drugs. In some cases, these conditions can be a symptom of a more serious mental health disorder, such as schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder.
If you are experiencing depersonalization or derealization, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional. Treatment may include psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of both. With the right treatment, it is possible to manage these conditions and improve your quality of life.
