Over the past two years I have fallen into a hole and I cant get out.
Im 19 and I now live alone and am at risk of losing my house.
I feel sad most of the time. I know I need to get up and fix my life, help myself but I just can't motivate myself.
I miss being happy.
I used to be social and always have friends around me.
But now I'm always alone.
This forever sinking feeling that life is pointless is really starting to wear me down.
I look at pictures of myself a few years ago. It often brings me to tears.
I don't bother with my looks, no one is interested in me anyway.
My eyes hurt from crying.
I look at my life and shake my head.
Where did I go wrong?
I need help.
Someone who is going through these feelings too.

I miss being happy.

Hi LightandDark, I definitely get the same way when I have my depression. I have bipolar disorder. I understand when you mean motivation is hard. honestly, what motivated me to go back to counseling was the fact that I wanted to be happy and told myself in order to go get it, was to put myself out there atleast try. I'm feeling better and have reasons for staying motivated. College, my business, and more. Find your reasons, and why you want to be happy. You have to atleast give it a try. There are ways to also make yourself feel better, too. Email me if you want to talk anytime. Take care.

That's the question that every procrastinator fails to answer correctly. Here is how it works: Actions bring emotions. If you felt bad then take actions and you will feel good after sometime.If you lost hope then take actions and you will regain this hope after a while. Whenever you get any emotion that you don't like just take more actions and you will get rid of it after sometime.

Do you know why some people do the impossible?
Its because they keep trying and trying until they do it even if they lost hope midway.
