moods

sometimes i feel like a failure. ive been in undergrad for 6 years and still dont know if ill be graduating soon... my car is falling a part and my apartment is not only trashed on the outside but i havent had motivation to clean the outside. I hate the way my body looks. I go through phases where i wont eat for like 2 days . It hasnt happened in the past few weeks but i feel it creeping up on me. i get in these moods where i want all new friends.... i dont want to be bothered with anybody i currently know. kind of like i want to start over. the only people i would keep around is my boyfriend and mom.

Hey, I don't know you and I've got no idea what it's like being in 'undergrad' or uni as I'm only 16, but I'm pretty sure it's normal to feel that way sometimes, I know what it's like to completely lose motivation, especially during school (I've got my GCSE's) but what I do is to try and do as little as I can, because little is better than nothing, and potentially doing more, slowly, is even bettter, but don't give up, you'll get that degree one day, and it will be worth it ☺️ I hope this helped, sorry if it didn't

For being 16, what good advice. Being this late in life, I am just now learning to go in a slow pace. I always wanted everything done quickly. Now. Taking baby steps. Thank you for reminding me!

Taken from the proper perspective, failure is a gift. Failure is a lesson of the best kind, but we have to accept this and move on from the failure. With the wrong attitude failure can be our destiny.

It sounds like your stuck in a rutt....and just need some change for the better...tyler you may be going through depression....it could just be temporary since your feeling like your not moving forward in life.... we all feel that way at some time in our lives...the thing to do is ...do something different...positive...take a shower, put on your fav. jeans and shirt, and go to a museum, take a drive, go to a bistro or coffee shop you like...just take a mental brake...

if you've been depressed for a while...then I'd go talk to your doctor, and maybe a therapist to get some clarity and direction. Don't give up, you've come a very long way.
