Thank you for your response.
It sounds like you are feeling unmotivated to do any work lately.
It's common for people of your age to go through emotional distress after finishing a high school when you enter young adulthood.
You are not alone.
But, you may need to find a way to empower yourself to have a more fulfilled life ...
You seem to have some regret from leaving a previous school.
Well, that may be affecting your current feelings - lack of motivation, drive, passion etc..
It may be good for you to restart doing what you used to enjoy or feel passionate about.
Are you open to counseling or life coaching to increase motivation and/or boost self confidence ?
You may benefit from seeing a counselor/psychotherapist OR life coach WEEKLY for 3-6 months or longer. Life coaching may be useful for you to increase your motivation/purpose, plan for the future, and take constructive action.
For psychological counseling,
she may benefit from having a Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT). There are several ways to find a psychologist or psychotherapist who takes your insurance.
You can search a licensed psychotherapist or a counselor who provides life coaching on internet- such as the PSYCHOLOGY TODAY website. Go to (http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/ppc/prof_search.php?iorb=4764) and enter your zip code and optional category of specialty such as life coaching. Read psychotherapists’ profile to see if he or she specializes in Cognitive-behavior therapy or life coaching. You may also want to create your mental image of psychotherapist that you want to work with – Male or female? Old or young? To note, many therapists offer initial consultation for free. So you can see it as an informational meeting. You and he can ask any question. You can also negotiate psychotherapy fee and number of sessions.
Also, you may try some or all of the following to increase motivation - 1. Exercise moderately, but regularly, 2. Eat healthy but delicious meals, 3. Regularize your sleep cycle, 4. Don't drink to excess or abuse drugs, 5. Spend some time every day in play, 6. Develop recreational outlets that encourage creativity, 7. Distance yourself from destructive situations or people, 8. Practice mindfulness meditation
, or walk, or an intimate talk, every day, 9. Allow yourself to feel pride in your accomplishments, 10, Listen to compliments and expression of affection, 11. Build and use a support system, 12. Pay more attention to small pleasures and sensations.
