well more than anything i just thought it'd be amusing to see a thread named this near MJ's thread (i've been awake a long time, stupid things are starting to amuse me). but i was also bored and i feel like making conversation. has anyone ever found themselves stuck in a situation for years, and still been completely baffled about how to change things? my problem is i can't seem to make myself do much of anything, from working out to leaving the house to getting a job, etc. best i can assume is i'm afraid of failure, and i know i'm afraid of finding myself stuck doing something i *really* don't want to do for a living. but what really keeps me from doing things is just complete lack of real motivation, i think. and i just can't figure out why absolutely nothing, not even the things i love, can get me motivated to do anything at all. i don't think it's that i'm depressed, really. i mean, anyone who knows me knows i'm anything but perky, but i'm also not exactly wednesday addams (despite what some people think). so maybe it's just that i'm so certain that i'll fail at anything i try, that i don't bother trying to begin with? even if that's the case, i'm having the darndest time trying to snap myself out of thinking like that. so if anyone has anything they'd like to add to this, maybe if they're feeling the same way or whatever, i'd really appreciate some advice (or even just opinions). and yes, the fact that i've been awake for about 35 hours most likely has something to do with me posting something so random in here.
