How to get my mojo back?
I have been working since I was 17, now I am 27 and I find myself struggling with motivation a lot. I find it hard to stay motivated and it has hampered my career in a massive way. I could probably still live with that but it has also started to take a toll the quality of my life. I have become quite lazy and indecisive and feel like I am losing respect of others.
Any advice/suggestion/tip welcome.
It sounds like you are experiencing a form of depression.
The only cure I know of for depression is taking action. The less active one becomes mentally and physically the more depressed they become. Eventually they withdraw from friends and family.
The strange irony is once (they) cut themselves off from loved ones they convince themselves that nobody understands or cares about them!
The 20s are a time for "self-discovery". You're not suppose to have all the answers by age 27. Some people don't figure out what they want to do until they're 40 or older. Cut yourself some slack!
Consider joining a few Meetup.com groups who have hobbies or interests that align with your own or simply be willing to experiment and try new things. Read inspirational books or biographies of those whom you admire. Whatever you do don't paint yourself into a corner and withdraw from the rest of the world. Sometimes you have to "fake it until you make it".
Find someone who has done or is doing whatever you hope to do one day and learn what steps they took. "Success leaves clues". Two people using the same recipe are likely to get similar results.
Be aware of who you are spending your time with, what you're listening to, and don't over indulge on negativity in the news. Having a girlfriend/boyfriend can also be a great thing. Best wishes!

But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.

I was recently studying Mark 12:28-31 which calls us to Love God with our whole being, AND ALSO to love our fellow man "as ourself". How can someone who does NOT love themselves (low self esteem) treat others well? SIMILAR ISSUE: Can we be both humble and also have enough love for...

Of course I won't but how would you react to someone who threatens to do this. Someone I know, fairly well, committed suicide this year. He had money worries and I feel really guilty that I did not take up his offer of carpentry work from a flier he put through my letterbox. I didn't know he was in...

I've felt empty of emotion for two years now. I can't seem to get over this,I'm tired of faking the happiness for the people around me. I'm tired of the only thing I do feel is sadness. I don't know what to do and I could use some advice.

When and how does it end up that you have a lot of friends and then eventually you turn around and you are alone because you are not happy with yourself? Shouldnt that be a time where your friends are there the most?
