Some people are in their personality, fairly shallow, passive, and tend to take life as it comes. This is rarely the result of abuse, and indeed apart from clear memories of abuse, there are no symptoms or signs that reliably preduct that someone was abused. Its not clear from your message whether you are talking about yourself or someone else. If the person was truly as passive as you describe it, they probably would be content as they are, and without them actively wanting to change, change would not occur. If this is yourself, and you are asking, presumably you don't really want things like this. A proper assessment by a psychologist will help clarify the reasons for and nature of this situation, and he/she could then advise on how with therapy to change things in the way you want.

Whoever this person is, it would be of great help to get them to do something fun they don' t usually do, like going to watch a great performance at the theater, or motor racing, or even just a theme park like Ratanga junction or Gold reef city. New fun experiences are a great trigger to get you in the mood for excitement.
