F F F F F My procrastination habit makes me feel down about myself. I sometimes feel so depressed or lacking in energy that I just don't feel like doing anything. I wish I could talk about my procrastination problems to someone who is understanding and not judgmental. I've tried to stop procrastinating, but I just don't feel like I have any control over it.
