My daughter is 18 (almost 19) She had dreams and ambition till she got into a relationship with her now ex. He was controlling and lazy. Wanting her to sit with him all the time. She finally broke it off but now she has no motivation, no drive, has given up on her dreams and says “How can I make an effort when I dont even like myself” She has a job, she wont put effort into, and wants to quit. I have younger children to look after and her negative attitude is affecting them too. What can I do to help her? When she doesnt want to help herself? Im worried.
