Counseling is good, but pick a goal and commit to it. If you are serious about being whole for your kids, then focus on that goal. When times get tough, focus on the goal... When you don't feel like getting off the couch, focus on that goal. There may be times when you don't overcome the lack of motivation, but just get back up on the horse (goal) and run at it again.

Life wasn't meant to be easy. If it was, we wouldn't learn anything.

I get derailed and go off the tracks very quickly - snowball effect. Nothing has helped to regain focus.
