    Feeling unmotivated


    I'm a 25yo male and for sometime now I've been feeling very unmotivated and bored with life. I've lost contact with my friends, I haven't had a GF in years, and I'm currently still living at home with my Mum, as I'm trying to save up for my own place to live in, as property prices where I live are expensive. Living at home isn't ideal, I live in a broken family and there is not much love, we just fight with each other most of the time.

    I just can't seem to get any motivation to do anything these days, I just don't have the energy to find some new friends or a girl friend, I don't have the motivation to get up and ride my bike, clean the house or read a book, I just like to vegetate in front of the TV or computer.
    I should also note that I'm very lucky to have a job which I like, and if I didn't have this job I don't know what I'd be doing, as it gives me something to do during the day. But even with this job I enjoy, I'm starting to feel bored with it or more so unmotivated to give my full 100%.

    Anyway I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of how I can sort out these issues I'm having. I think the best thing for me is to move out of home ASAP as that's the main problem in my life.

    Hmm.... Sounds to me like you might be depressed. Does your family have a history of depression? In my opinion, any depression or mental/emotional should be taken care of before you go out on your own.

    If you are depressed, the best thing to do would be to see your doctor. He can either refer you to a therapist, or prescribe you medication.

    I feel similar, except I'm fifteen.
