Living with impaired emotions through cerebral palsy means emotionally means I live with less motivation and inner-drive.
Neurologically my emotions are impaired, which means I have very little motivation. Cerebral Palsy is one factor and with no emotional support I would always struggle to get off the starting block.
With a physical disability that affects you mentally, there will be elements of an emotional struggle. In my own case, I would start things that never got finished and through my inability to function normally, I very quickly became trapped and misunderstood over the tasks others thought I should have finished.
As a result I failed to gain momentum because everything was difficult. Given my physical and psychological difficulties, even if I had have wanted to improve my life, I would have struggled. I was trapped in a world where no one understood or cared. I retreated into my own little world.
There was nothing I could improve on, so nothing improved. I had no goals, ambition or objectives. I existed. The environment I grew up in was another contributing factor. Other causes for a lack of motivation are chronic illness, trauma, depression, being stressed, anxiety, insomnia and low self-esteem.
Anything we struggle with that causes us to cope less with our life, is when we lose our motivation and inner-drive.
