Asking for advice

Hey everyone. I need help.

It's been a few months since I started my job as a Sales Executive. I've been talking to a lot of clients without having problems. All of the sudden, I've lost my interest in everything. Including my job and my hobbies. My boyfriend also asked for "cool-off" or temporary break-up which might also added to the cause of my depression. I have talked to my friends and asked for their advice but it didn't help me. I do have a family but I don't wanna bother them with my own problems. I've been hiding my issues for a month now. I feel empty, like something is missing. I feel exhausted without doing anything. I don't know what to do. I can't even distract myself.

Well it can be quite stressful in a new work role. A relationship pause can be quite disconcerting also. I would see a Doctor. You can consider whatever is suggested but maybe there is a route for counselling support.

Listening to good, motivational and uplifting songs on youtube helps me. Listen every day.

Write on a journal expressing all your thoughts and feelings.
