These few days, I've been feeling out of sorts.
I had a period (lasting for close to a year) of a real lack of motivation last year, and since then I'm much better, but I still have such episodes.
I look up self help websites, quotes, anything that might open my heart up. I talked to a friend, but it only helped for a day. I don't know what is stopping me from wanting to open my heart up to help myself. I want to, but apparently not deep inside.
How do I get out of this rut? How have you gotten out of similar situations?

I feel you.Is there an underlying issue or problem that's causing you to feel that way?

I don't really have a major cause behind it, not anymore. I guess it's just my personality.. I'm currently studying, so I guess I just really lose interest in it. People are motivated by competition; I don't really like to participate in the rat race so I don't really think of getting to the top. I understand that being better than yourself each time is the most important, but when it comes to studies, I just get so tempted to procrastinate and I do, most of the time, for days. I'm having my exams soon, so I really need to do something about it..

You say you've lost interest in studying.Is it because your interest lies somewhere else?Like maybe you currently don't like what you're studying but there is another subject/topic that you're interested in?Or perhaps you just don't want to study anymore?

I don't like what I'm studying :( I'm currently studying for my national exam, and it's tough whenever I don't have friends around to motivate me, like today. I was at home and lazed around the whole day. I know I should get out of the house and get friends to motivate me but I'm just disappointed that I never ever had the resolve to motivate myself for a long period of time :(
