I Have No Motivation

    I have absolutely no motivation to do much of

    anything. No motivation to clean my house (though it's not like an episode of Hoarders or anything), no motivation to exercise, etc. I don't know what my issue is. I know some of it is depression, but not all. I know that some people have a ton of motivation & energy...they...

    So here is my story: I am almost 30 years old and have no job, no motivation, no interests, no social life, no life, no skills. All my life I have always been told I was stupid, and would never amount to anything, statements which I've internalized to this day. I have two...

    I just hate my life right now.I'm living with my girlfriend who also has no motivation, she's a slob, and I am on the verge of breaking up with her because I feel she is a contributing factor in my "lack of" problem.  Never in my life have I been this unmotivated to to anything...

    I have no motivation to do anything.

    Today, I woke up thinking,

    "Today is going to be bad." And I just can't get out of that frame of mind today. I'm supposed to be going to work and then going out later but I just want to go home. I'm not going to avoid going to work or out though.

    I am in school right now, and it seems like almost every time I try to sit down and get homework/studying done, I can't. I feel very distant and my mind is always thinking of other things to do that seem much more interesting, and eventually I completely forget what I had to do...

    It is very annoying to not have any motivation.
