Serious lack of motivation

(1 Post)

I was really, really depressed in my teens. My circumstances got better and it seems to have very gradually lifted but I still have this overwhelming lack of motivation even though I now WANT to succeed and be happy (I didn’t before).

I’m working full time and studying, plus I have a toddler so I do have a lot on but even on mat leave I felt like this.

Some days I’m absolutely fine and do just get on with it, but some days (like today) I just achieve absolutely nothing and I hate it. Has anyone managed to overcome this?
