How do you change
by No one
I have come to the acceptance of who I am and don't know what to do now.
All my life has been have to or must do. Now that it's gone I can' seem to muster the motivation to do anything.
I know the things I should do for myself, exercise and social but I just don't care. I feel so tired of trying and pushing to live, I feel done. I lost my house and live with my son and his family and can't seem to feel a part of too often.
I need a life but can't get going. I feel there are so many things about myself I need to change but get overwhelmed and just take a nap. I'm worried sometimes because I just want it to be over. I know if you focus on others you forget yourself but if you get going how do you do that?
I've always HAD to, guess never been a self starter or it's always been for someone else. I cared for my parents for the last 15 yrs , they are both gone now.
I don't know, I just don't know how to motivate or care enough to do anything. I could use some advise.
Wendy: Have you seen a doctor? If you are often sleeping, you might want to see one... thyroid? depression? who knows... but you need a little energy before you can find a life, right?
I think it will only get harder the longer you wait. Find out what's happening and feel better so you want to go out and find new friends, get busy again.
You have a LIFE to LIVE. Don't let it pass you by - and regret it later... Please give yourself a little kick in the A** (grin!) and get moving.
p.s. Next time you want to nap, make yourself go outdoors for a walk first -- breathe deeply, take in some bright sunshine warmth and happiness, get your body moving a little bit.
