It hurts when we find ourselves in situations we thought we’d never be in. We feel trapped and can’t get out. Maybe it’s our family, our job, our relationships, or our responsibilities. We don’t know how to handle or navigate our way out. We think of scenarios where if it was just like “X” we could easily get out of this. We could easily leave behind things that do not serve our lives anymore. There’s always something that keeps us here. That dangling carrot. The hope that things will get better or easier. We’re trapped feeling helpless to our own thoughts. It may not ever get easier but as time goes by we get better. We are our only guarantee and we deserve to have a life full of things that make us feel good day in and day out.
