Stuck in life: take powerful action and free yourself


Do you often feel like going nowhere or even slipping backwards? Do you strongly believe that you are condemned to live an unhappy and unsatisfying life? Do you find yourself unable of feeling any positive emotion whatsoever? Have you ever considered that maybe you are just taking your time and preparing for a long and tiring marathon called “life”? Another viable explanation for this situation is that you just have the strong impression that you are stuck in life, but it does not represent the actual reality. You just focus your entire attention on failures and negativity, thus overlooking all the beautiful and positive things in your life or around you. Sooner than anticipated, you become irritable, frustrated, angry and even depressed. There are many factors leading to such a solid blockage in life including perfectionism, which translates to unrealistic expectations, procrastination, which inevitably leads to shame for not successfully completing a project in time, a deep shame that makes you apologize for every minor error and defensiveness, which is a protection mechanism.

Stuck in life - take powerful action and free yourself

Do not let fear impede you from changing your life

Nevertheless, you have to rise above these details and keep pursuing your own objectives in life. You cannot let obstacles and challenges block your path in life. You cannot possibly know what the future holds – unless you opt for psychic chat, but the main idea is that you have the power to create your own reality. Do not view this as a recommendation to overlook that feeling of going nowhere because it actually represents an obvious sign that you need to make a change in your life. You probably already know this, but the fear impedes you from taking any action. The solution is more than simple; you just need to gain an objective perspective of the situation by distancing yourself from all the negative and depressing vibe controlling your life. The irony is that you created the problem and you are the only one who can put an end to it, but you have to change your mindset in order to do so. After all, you cannot fight fire with fire.

What to remember when you feel stuck in life

During this important and decisive healing process, keep in mind these real things: if yesterday was defined by failure, today does not have to be the same; making a significant change might seem to be a daunting mission, but it is worth it in the end; there is nothing holding you back from achieving your goals and making your dreams come true, except for your own excuses; you cannot let others dictate the way you live because their negative opinions might destroy your enthusiasm; do not fear individualism or authenticity, not everyone has to be the same. All the challenges that you face and the obstacles that you overcome help you grow and develop as an individual. Do not underestimate your capabilities because you are stronger than you can imagine. Finally, yet importantly, remember that you are not actually stuck in life.
