#HighlySensitivePeople: Do You Have Trouble Staying Motivated?

Do you have trouble staying motivated? I do sometimes. Although this bothers me, I realize that it’s impossible to be “on” all the time. I start out energized and excited about a project, and soon after, I’m in the dumps having a pity party. Staying motivated isn’t easy! If it were, everybody would do it.

I bet you’ve had this experience too. It happens to us all. You may have felt good about a certain job or project when it began.

Highly Sensitive People: If You Want To Be A Writer…Write…Right?
