    I seriously need to get motivated to live my

    own life once more... After graduating college, I just feel like that's all there is. I know there is more to life but I seem to care way less now.. Just been trying to watch some motivating ted talks, experiences here, along with talking to some of my friends. I'm still young...

    I have so many great ideas,

    and so many opportunities to make my life better but I have no motivation to follow through with anything. I tried my hand with direct sales with a team I guaranteed success, and I couldn't even motivate myself to get that off the ground. I have no motivation to work out even...

    No Motivation

    It is strange to be asked to write about my lack of motivation when this lack of motivation gives me no desire to write. Basically I am not sure what to do...about anything. I have felt depressed for a long time now and everytime my life seems...

    Seems like I'm wasting my life now.

    I don't even go to school anymore I wonder if I'm considered a drop out. I had such high goals set for myself. I hate that this happened to me.

    It's pretty tough to do things without

    motivation. Even the simplest daily things become a struggle. I don't think I need more energy.

    it's hard to have motivation

    when the only future you see is even beaker than your present. and honestly you don't want to find out if life gets better or not. you just want it all to end. but somehow I have to find the motivation to get through each day. make choices for a future I never wanted. and act...

    It is very annoying to not have any motivation.

    I do clean my house every day but, it takes a little while for me to get off my butt and do it. And I feel like I’m just lazy and that makes me sad. The things I want to be motivated to do is-yoga, meditating, working out, and painting again. I take anti depressants that are...

    But I guess I will need to figure out how to

    I didn't come to this point and time to be extinguished by life. Not my plan of course, but it's what has been dealt to me. Kicked off ones perch to the dark pit.Tired of the repetition of picking oneself out again.No motivation. Searching for that open door to relief !
