    I Haven't Been Motivated For A Long Time

    I wasn't like this before. I used to be really active, care about my studies, work on my hobbies, was more outgoing, etc. Now... I'm just... dead...I don't do... anything. I have no passion, no motivation to take part in anything. Whatever I do it's because I have to. I lost...

    I lack motivation all the time.

    I wanna do so many great things in life, but I could never just get my a$$ up and do it. I could use my maximum potential, I just can't find the will to do it.

    Mostly, Not Sometimes

    The main reason I usually lack motivation boils down to one thing. I'm thankful beyond words for friends - offline or here on EP. But I've been trying my entire life, from as far back as I can remember, which was before I turned two, only a short number of months after my...

    but I'm lacking motivation in just about every area in my life. I used to be on top of my game at work - so creative and driven. I used to be inspired to make all these lists to do projects and cleaning around the house. I used to do fun crafts and educational stuff with my kids...

    Just Do It

    I have very little to no drive to do anything lately. And it's dumb because it makes me so sad that I do absolutely nothing with my entire day. I want to feel motivated to do things. Today, my husband said "If you want to do something, just do it." He was trying to console me...

    I've done it before. My main problem is motivation. I dress nice. I have pretty hair, skin, nails, and teeth. I am clean. I have a pretty face. I get hit on fairly regularly. The issue isn't self esteem - though I know being more fit would be a boost! I do want to be fit but...
