    Thanks for your honesty. I have studied integrative counselling and psychology, I found that it stirred allot of old unresolved wounds up. I truly believe the only place that we can experience that deeper healing is through Jesus. Sometimes He delivers us of certain things within an instant; but more often than not it's a process. Renewal of the mind and sanctification (the process of being made more like Jesus). Our relationship is cooperative. Therefore there are certain things we can do to help the process. I know when we feel down the last thing we want to do is anything, but fellowship, prayer, reading the bible and trusting relationships where you can share in a compassionate, non- judgemental setting will all contribute to your restoration. Therapy is also very beneficial. Things like borderline personality disorder can benefit from certain types of therapy. I would recommend schema-therapy, although it is long term in integrates a number of modalities. Remember God can use these things as a tool to help you understand some of the reasons why you are feeling the way you feel. Emotions can feel very powerful, and yet we have the ability to choose. Take small achievable steps to begin with. Start by writing out a daily plan of motivation, then start to set goals towards your future. When you understand the truth of why your struggling, and if it's trauma related there are may things that can help. I will pray God leads and guides you into the freedom he desires for you. God bless you and keep you.
    My name used to be chancer but Im now a vessel of honour. God bless you and keep you.

    You feel the way you do because you have no direction to go. You are like standing in a desert and have no ideal which way to go. Every direction looks the same to you. You would rather just God tell you "Go this way" And you are more than willing to obey what He tells you. The problem is He is not telling you which direction, you feel lost, you feel confused, you feel like He is not hearing your plea for help. He is silent, and now your thinking maybe He doesn't care enough to lead you. And instead of choosing a direction you are taking thought to just sit down and wait for the buzzards to come and pick the flesh off your bones, you just don't care.

    Snap out of it, the Matrix has you.

    You say
    I always ask God for strength and motivation for what God has called me to do and to continue on His path
    So you pray to God to continue on His path? Do you go to Church? Do you attend a Bible study? Do you read His Word Daily? Do you study His Word? You pray to God to continue on His Path but do you do those things that are on His Path?

    You do not know which direction to go, because the Spirit of Truth in you is not strong enough to reveal to you which direction to go. Jesus said "eat me" and Jesus is the Word. The more you read and study Scriptures the more your spirit is being fed, the more your spirit is being fed the stronger your spirit gets. And then one day like lightning you read a verse that you have read a hundred times before and BAM!!!!! The understanding of that verse floods into your mind. It was only at that point your spirit was strong enough to reveal to you the meaning of that verse.

    You want to know what direction God wants you to go, then first feed your Spirit. Read the Word, Study the Word, go to a Bible Study, go to Church to hear the Word preached, live and eat the Word of God, and then God most assuredly will reveal to you what He wants you to do with your life for Him.

    But as long as the matrix has you, it will keep you down and out, confused, and thinking about ending it all. Jesus is LIFE. Jesus is the Word. i have read the Word of God front to back over 80 times in my life, and to this day the Holy Spirit is still teaching me things concerning the Word. Wake up, get into the Word of God, feed your Spirit.
    You would not go one day without feeding your flesh food, Why would you go one day without feeding your spirit food, which is the Word of God? Read it, study it, and then see if God does not give you a mission, a goal, a direction.

    Those who draw close to God, are those that God will draw close to.
