Droopy plant help

Hello,
my plant has been droopy and I am not sure why. I have been watering it properly (at least I hope so) but it doesn't get that much sunlight because of the weather in my country, but it hasn't been a problem for the past 2 years. The leaves have some brown or gray dots, spots also maybe some breakage. Should I water it more or what does that mean? Am I over watering it? Although there was one other time when it was droopy but somehow I fixed it and I'm not even sure how. Is it normal for cold seasons? Now it's doing this thing again and I don't know what to do help me I really don't want this plant to die.
1ft to light, indirect

It needs drainage holes at the pot. Also, try moving it to a different window that gets more light. If you can’t, you can buy a grow light (a light that’s meant to feel like the sun, it helps plants grow)
awww im sorry:(. this could happen because of many reasons. the first reason thats important to check for is overwatering. to check if you have root rot(root problem caused by overwatering), take the plant out of the pot. gently β€œsift” through the roots. roots with root rot will be dark in color and mushy. if you find any of those roots, cut them off, put the plant back into the pot, and cut back on watering for the next couple of days(e.g. having the watering days be a little more irregular, watering a little less, and making sure that at least 1-2 inches of the soil is dry.). if you find no signs of overwatering, you can do the action steps for underwatering. to check for underwatering, look for hard dry soil, and thin, crinkly leaves. if you find you are watering correctly, you can experiment with lighting. if your plant is in a darker spot, put it in more light, and if your plant is in a lighter spot, put it in a darker spot. see what works for you. your plant can also have the wrong pot size. to check if your plant pot is too big, look for soil that dries very slowly. this can be a very big problem. if you find that the soil stays wet most of the time, it may be time to go down a pot size. if your plant pot is too small, you may find that the plant tips over, the soil dries extremely quickly, and roots may be pushing the plant upwards(or roots may also grow out of rhe drainage hole.). how to prevent these isssues, you may ask? its really about experimenting and finding what works well for you and your plant. hope this helps!!:)
