    No Motivation

    I'm 26, male, construction worker, newly married. There are so many things I want to accomplish but I usually just end up sitting around all day after work or opting out of doing my own stuff by visiting family or friends. I can't seem to figure out how to initiate anything I...

    Exactly!

    I've been looking for a group like this for a long time. This is my exact situation! I want a lot out of life but my extreme obstacles induce my laziness. I want to be that go-getter who has it all but I want to just chill, too. With such a conflicting nature, things seem...

    I love my mom, but I simply can't think of anything positive about her. In my mind, she's controlling and judgmental, which she kind of isn't. She's very nice.
