My name is Pegah and I'm a 25 years old girl from Toronto. I have had uneven motivation all my life throughout school. Sometimes I study and sometimes I don't. Why does my brain make me act the way I do? how can I overcome it? is my uneven motivation my fault? am I the one responsible for my underachievements in school?. I took psychiatric medications but I don't want to take them anymore because of their side effects.
the question of what motivates one person and not another is one of life's mysteries. Psychotropic drugs can alleviate symptoms that get in the way of achievement, but they do not solve our problems. I would recommend you find a psychotherapist who can help you learn more about your personality and help you discover what does motivate you. A psychologist, licensed counselor, or clinical social worker can help you make lasting changes if you are willing to do the work.
