i'm wondering what makes people getting up every day in their life?
since i'm struggling with depression for more than 15 years and having trouble getting up in the morning and doing anything i was wondering how other people cope with that.
for me it's that i don't really have a reason or motivation to get up each day. sure if i have an appointment i'm able to go to it but on a routine day it's very hard.
in my family no one seems to have that problem. my parents are retired for a few years now and still they get up every day pursuing some activities, even if it is just for sitting in front of the computer and photoshopping some photos as my father does it.
i've had this almost my entire life and i guess if my mother wouldn't have forced me when i was a child i wouldn't have gone to school many days in my life.
there were few years of which i had no trouble getting out of bed but in retrospect these were definitely the exception and the rule is that i still have trouble and can't figuring out why.
of course the years when it was easy i had a lot of energy and these were the years i was in the military service and later when i went back to college for a second degree. although the last two years were very hard as the depression came back and i've had missed quite some lectures as i could not face the days feeling tired all the time. still i could complete the program but it has made me feel anxious about pursuing another program as i now feel i couldn't do it anymore.
i was always very interested in people and as a scientific person i want to understand how we work and what makes us going. and even if i know a lot about the different kinds of fields, subjects and theories about us i haven't figured out yet what it is that could make me crawl out of bed every day and pleasing the world for its beauty rather than be depressed.
please tell me about your own experiences.
