Common Reasons Why Troubled Teens Lack Motivation
Low self-esteem - Troubled teens with low self-esteem usually feel that they are incapable of succeeding in life. They often put forth little to no effort to complete their responsibilities or tasks such as homework, chores, or quitting negative habits. Because of this, they tend to beat themselves up and often self-sabotage.
Depression - A common symptom of depression in teens is a lack of interest or motivation in activities or responsibilities, specifically ones that they once enjoyed. Finding treatment for depression will create more success in finding the motivation troubled teens are lacking.
Feeling overwhelmed or stressed - When teens feel stressed or overwhelmed, a significant amount of their mental capacity is focused directly on whatever issue is causing their discomfort. They often will have a lack of sleep, their appearance will deteriorate, or (in extreme cases) will engage in hazardous activities such as substance use.
Fear of failing - Sometimes, troubled teens are lead to believe that making mistakes means that they have failed or something is wrong with them. They will often develop of fear of failure and ignore their work or responsibilities. This way will feel safer than attempting to achieve a goal and failing to succeed.
