Lack of motivation

I am a male student currently studying in high school. I lack of motivations in my studies. I cant find a motivation in my life. whenever I forced my self to study, I feel worn out, sad, depressed and cant give in any hardwork,sometimes I even cried. I've tried to be confident on myself to study, but it doesnt work anymore. I cant find a goal or interest for myself. Sometimes I feel like giving up in my studies. I feel lost. What can I do to save myself?

Hi Alson, Based on what you

Hi Alson,

Based on what you described, it sounds like you are struggling with depression. Sadness, tiredness, lack of motivation, and loss of interest are all symptoms of depression. You also say you "can't give in any homework" - if you are having difficulties concentrating on your school work, that is also a common symptom of depression.

I suggest you talk to your parents about setting up an appointment with a mental health professional for an evaluation (if they have health insurance then that should cover at least part of your treatment). It would also be wise to see your regular doctor for a medical check up to rule out a possible medical condition that may be causing these symptoms as well.

The most important thing is to have an evaluation. Then you can look at your options and make an informed decision. Depression is usually treated with therapy and / or medication.

I don't recommend medication as the sole treatment because it often requires a lot of trial and error to find one that works, and will treat only the symptoms. It will not help you learn ways to manage your depression, learn good coping skills, address underlying issues, or help you change thinking patterns that may be significantly contributing to your depression. However, it is better than no treatment at all.

I commend you for reaching out and encourage you to get an evaluation as soon as possible. You don't have to keep feeling this way, but you may need some help to get bettter.

I hope this helps and I wish you the best.
