Ask A Therapist Onlinelack of motivation
Anon asked 12 years ago

I am a person who has no drive and motivation to do anything, within minutes of performing a task I lose interest and cannot concentrate, my whole day is filled with mental tightness, resentment and anger. I’m 20 though live with my family which is not the problem, the problem is that my family is dysfunctional with my father and sister having mental health problems, my father especially sleeps all day and night. The main cause of my resentment and anger is the fact that he has never been there for me in the physical and emotional way a normal father is. Its something I struggle to come to terms with as my mother goes through a lot of pain and I am powerless to do anything to help myself or my mother. Please help in some way, I have never asked anyone for help on this issue though I admit I need guidance.
