The answer is easy, try to play different things:) What I mean try to play musics that you never play before. That could be different artists (Ron Thal, Guthrie Govan...) or music styles(classical music, jazz, folk, country)... or you can try different techniques like hybrid picking, finger style..
Also you can try to cover different instruments like sax, traditional fretless instruments... I get the same problem just try to enjoy when you are playing.

we all have moods I guess ,Ive now heard your playing and just keep doing it ,,have a look at some players you havnt heard much ,take a riff thats new to you and thrash it,another thing you will find is as you go through lifes little battles and grow older your playing will slowly mature ,and you will notice this with time ,

you will get bored and frustrated from time to time ,but dont fucking stop playing your music is your lifes emotion ,feeling and what not ,think of what you would have if you stoped playing ,,,,,... :|

If you are ever feeling down or want to throw away your guitar talk to me ,and i will put you back on track young dude

A lot of people will tell you to try to learn a different style or expand you playing and taste. That might be a good idea, but I don't think it will work. I've been there. You kind of just get burned out and everything feels the same. You need a break. Try to learn a new instrument. Learn piano. It's a great instrument to back and forth to. Then go back to guitar. It will feel like you are "right at home" again and you'll want to get back to playing. It worked for me.
