Hi,

I genuinely don’t think I’m being lazy or anything. But I don’t do my work anymore. I don’t know how to explain this but I tell myself please do your work, like I will be begging myself to do my work, even out loud sometimes, but I just don’t. I really don’t know why. Sometimes I look at the work and close the laptop again and not go back to it.
I also lack will power in doing such regular things, like eating and shopping for groceries, and cleaning. I don’t know if I am being lazy or not? How do I know if I am lazy or it’s something wrong with me? How do I get the energy to look after myself and studies again?

Watch those productivity/study youtubers... they'll make you feel like a failure and then you'll want to work out of spite.

I am feeling quite similar. Do you still socialise with people a lot?

Sometimes for some things, it can help to do them with someone else. E.g. when people go to the gym or on a run, often it is with a friend because it holds them accountable and you don't need to have as much willpower because doing anything with a friend is usually more fun than without. And because you then have the responsibility of showing up for them as they do for you.

Sounds like you might be depressed? Have you spoken to anyone about how you are feeling?

You’re absolutely not being lazy. Sounds like you’re burned out mentally atm. Happens to us all. Let yourself be “lazy” for a while, seek some help and try find things that relax you and then try again. If that still doesn’t help, maybe consider speaking to a doctor!

I don’t really have friends who I could do all that with. I just have ppl I know but not well enough.

No I haven’t. I’m worried my lecturers might think I’m lazy.

I have been like this for a few months, I don’t want to let myself b more lazy. I will try to speak to someone but I just don’t know how they will react and might judge.

Easier said than done obviously. But if someone judges you, mentally delete them and find another person. And I know it can be really difficult but it is never too late to make different friends or join a friend group that already know eachother etc. You've got this
