Feeling stuck in any part of life sucks.
Sometimes we are stuck because of circumstances beyond our control, e.g., weather, illness, the economy.
Other times, however, we stay stuck because of fear.
Fear of loss.
Fear of failure.
Fear of ridicule.
Fear of being alone.
Fear of the unknown.
Fear of being truly seen.
Fear of what others will think.
These fears are real and they make us miserable.
However, remaining stuck makes us miserable, too.
Staying in a job, career or relationship that depletes us may feel safe but it robs us of our chance to live as joyfully as possible. The only way to get unstuck is to acknowledge the fear and dive in to overcome it.
This isn’t easy but it’s doable. It requires motivation and courage. Sometimes lots of courage.
The goal is to be able to wake up in the morning and look forward to yet another day you love.
Are you feeling stuck? It’s OK to ask for help. If we could get unstuck by ourselves, we would!
Joy is out there waiting for you.
