WAHEGURU ji ka khalsa WAHEGURU ji ki fateh!

im a Sikh currently living In the us, and struggling with life. I struggle with life because inside me, I know what is right. I know I should be doing more path and more simran,and in order to do that I have to finish my daily responsibilities and not waste time, but after thinking about all the work I have to do each day(not a lot), my mind just goes in "shut down" mode. It is like another force is taking over me, and I start to watch tv and do Maya related activities out of unwillingness and stubbornness. I have become so lazy. I just cannot find that enthusiasm, that pride, that love, for being a Sikh, and being so blessed. At the end of the day, I regret it, and I turn mad But now I am regretting it less and less. I used to be a loving Sikh, waking up at amrit vela everyday, but now I am drowning. Please help me before I'm completely drowned.

EDIT - also, I believe I am lacking in motivation. I know WHY I should do my work/simran/nitnem, but I am not motivated still, my heart and mind both seem empty, I feel like I have no emotion, in fact, I don't feel anything. At the moment, I am lying on my bed, It is 11:45 am, I have not done my nitnem , not done simran, I haven't even taken a bath.

Wish I could say that I cannot identify myself with that.

Try these...helps me most of the time:

1) This too shall pass

2) It could have been worse

don't worry it happens to every sikh for a little time...if you break in this time then in future you gonna be a false sikh but if you work on your mind and body this will help to rise again.....its all because of kalyug....kalyug first try to break singh or singhni nitnem then start to kill the emotion related to bani and bana...this way people get far away from sikh...try to win kalyug...we are brave warriors....we not gonna stop till our head is cut off....just think about those singhs in previous century who had nothing to eat ,nothing to sleep but never miss nitnem,,,sikh never afraid from kalyug...F**k kalyug .....we are the awesome child of awesome father....

Its u who has to make the efforts...some things might shut you down or make you feel that there is no use in paath and simran but you have to fight back...dont wait for a miracle :)
