Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?

Not confession but asking for advice: I have a sibling who, since childhood, thinks that my mom favors me more than her.

She has told my mom how she feels too but I think she’s getting mad at very trivial things? I don’t know if she hates me or is jealous of me since I’m the supposed favored child. Should I just keep pretending everything’s ok?
