I have a problem where I have no motivation at all. I can't seem to motivate myself to do anything. I do suffer from very mild depression - not tablet controlled - and I have self-esteem and self worth issues, which i have sought help with but haven't improved much.
I seem to struggle to be happy. I'm not down all the time and I do my best to think and feel positive. I'm very happy with all i have in my life also, sure it could be better but I am more than thankful for my lot in life (which hasn't been a walk in the park so far).
My house is a mess, I seem to lack the energy and motivation to do anything. I have two jobs which, although I love them both, are a chore to me. I would quite happily sleep my life away. I go the gym 3 times a week - but can't seem to quite get myself to a place to take it seriously. I want to pack in smoking and do so every day but get to a point where I think sod it. I get geared up to do something and then put it off. I'm most unhappy with this part of me but haven't got a clue how to change it. I just feel I have nothing to be proud of and no real organisation or motivation in my life. And I know its time to change that, but in all honesty don't quite know how to. I just want to shake myself and say get a grip!
