    I'm 26, have a degree and am in an okay-paying job. I'm not happy. I live in a nice area and am financially stable but still feel like something is missing. I sit in an office all day, go home and lie in bed. Repeat x5. Weekends usually involve drinks and dreading work the following week. First world problems right? I need some advice. I want to know steps to take to achieve fulfilment and happiness. Tough love is good. What has worked for you? I'm worried I'm getting depressed. Thanks :D

  • I'm struggling with therapy. Any advice from anyone? I've been in therapy on and off for a while and I haven't learned much at all.?

    Best answer: It sounds like you need a cognitive behavioral therapist (CBT). This would help you understand your cognitive distortions about the way you think and to re-frame them so you can get moving in your therapy.

    Lately I've had really low energy levels and lowered mood. Before I had no trouble waking up as my alarm went on and had a lot of energy throughout the day. Lately I've been tired all the time, with little desire to do anything. I do plan my days all the time but because of the mood and the lack of energy I don't follow them. Even if I do manage to get up early I feel like a zombie the whole day (and coffee doesn't seem to be helping). Just to add , I do go to bed at a normal time, but even after 8 hrs of sleep I feel tiredness and lack of energy.

    Best answer: As someone who is similar, there are 2 things that I do to help prevent procrastination.

    The first is to change the environment. For example, if you typically do your homework in your room, try moving to the kitchen. Or better yet, go to a library. This helps because we typically associate certain feelings and behaviors with our environment. Bedrooms are a place of comfort, relaxation, and privacy. Introducing schoolwork into this environment goes against our mental model of the feelings associated with the room. However, a place the like the kitchen is associated with productivity and labor.

    The second method is to create a checklist of the things you need to accomplish. Even if it's a simple homework assignment, try to breakdown the assignment into smaller tasks and write them on a post-it note. This can help to make the assignment seem less intimidating. Additionally, you can reward yourself with 15 minute break after each task, which helps to maintain focus. There is also something psychological about crossing an item off a list. Over time, this method could not only help you stop procrastinating, but it can also make you finish tasks much quicker than your peers.

  • Can a psychopath feel affection for another person?

    Best answer: Not really -- they can't feel anything. They are very good at faking it. It's actually a brain problem, where their
    amygdala is very small which is in the emotion portion of the brain. They can't help it. They are generally born that way.

    I am so dumb. I have a very slow brain. It's not that I move slow or talk slow, I'm like normal people It's just my brain process things so slow and I get teased all the time. I am in a cheerleader squad and I am actually pretty good but I'm the stupidest of all the members, my brain takes time to process concepts and sometimes it's just blank and I lose focus every time. I am so stupid, it sucks that nobody listens to me when I talk because they already think what I'm gonna say is stupid (sometimes I say things that are actually right but because I am a stupid person they don't take me seriously and I end up being right anyways). help please, how do i cope with thinking so slow?
