I've been through depression, I know what it's like, i belive I can go through it again if that's the case, the thing is, after my ex left me, I became obsessed with psychology, how our brain works, how we can become better as lover, friend, son. I think I have a very clear idea of how people "function", that's why most of the time, I'm like the" psychiatrist " for my friends, I can give great advice, but I won't apply them for myself (ironic). My biggest problem right now is the path that I want to follow and stick to it, I don't want to procrastinate as much as I do now. It's a constant battle with my brain, and I have to take control over it. I wanna thank you for your advice, and at the same time, I hope you have an amazing life

Personally, I function better when I have deadlines. Even if I make them myself, put them in my calendar. Being accountable to someone who is going to ask you what you've gotten done is helpful If they aren't obnoxious about it.

I definitely would consider seeing a psychologist (if u haven’t already). You sound like u think very deeply about things which is really powerful but sometimes overthinking can jamb u up and just need to unscramble. Potentially ADHD (distractive) might be a factor for u if you flip between being insanely productive on things that you connect with but struggle with motivation / procrastination if it’s not that interesting to you.

Overall, take it easy dude, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves in our late-teens and twenties. You have decades left of your life to work it out.
