“It’s my 4th month of staying alone and I have come to a realisation that I’m not the most domesticated human. Nor do I have any order in my life.”

He got candid about how he has been trying to save by eating healthily but finds himself going out for dinner and overspending on alcohol, junk food and bank charges from missing multiple debit orders.

Not holding back, the actor even revealed that the cleanliness of his apartment often “coincides with where I am emotionally and mentally”, adding that, “I’m lazy and I procrastinate — but I try by all means to maintain my space the best way I can.”

The star also touched on the state of his mental health, revealing that he has turned to reading and listening to podcasts to manage his anxiety and depression:

“I’ve been gingerly experimenting with cannabis. The “high” kinda balances out my anxiety & depression but somehow makes me a tad bit schizophrenic.
"So, I’ve put the blunt down and opted for these slightly informative podcasts and New York Times articles as a form of therapy.”

Netizens took to the comment section to admit that they too, relate with him.
