What the heck is going on with me?
Feeling stuck is when you find yourself in a life situation which does not seem to change for the better. The movie Groundhog Day comes to mind somewhat. You may be in a job that feels joyless. You may be in a stage in life which hardly motivates you. You seem to be doing it every day for months or years. You may be living in with financial stresses which drain the life out of you and despite hard efforts…things don’t change. You could have the perfect life: good relationship, nice car, happy life, etc…..and still you feel like you’re treading water in quicksand.
Life is constantly in motion
You experience life differently each day. There is something new and fresh every moment. Life is very much alive but you are not seeing how dynamic life is. Hence your feeling of being stuck. You need a change of perspective and a re-focusing your thoughts on things which can re-energize life. Every day has the potential to bring something new to your life but it requires looking and seeking it out.
What prevents me from seeing life differently?
Something in you is resisting seeing or experiencing life differently. You may be clinging on to something or afraid to address/face something. You may be more comfortable stuck theinstein quote – we cannot solve our problems with the same thinkingan changing. You have probably thought of options but making a choice to change direction is a daunting task. Your desire to stay where you are may be based on ‘past conditioning.’ But you cannot come out of your ‘stuck’ life using the same things you’ve learned thus far. You’ll need to let go of the thinking you are currently using and lean into some new ideas although you may be uncomfortable at times. It takes changing how you thinking and adapting to life’s experiences. And become willing to allow life to inspire you once again.
What you need to remember
Firstly, you have the power to move forward and live up to your dreams. Secondly, you have the power to follow through and achieve your goals. Some other things to know:
- Feeling stuck is a feeling, not a fact
- Thinking about the past mistakes is distracting you from seeing life
- That stuck feeling is your brain telling you that you are ready for a change
- Change is worth the effort even though you may be uncomfortable along the way
- Don’t let your usual excuses keep you from enjoying life
- Surround yourself with people who support you
- Beware of other people’s opinions as they can become your next excuse to avoid change.
- Change is an inside job
- You are stronger than you’ve given yourself credit.
What does this mean?
We’ve never met a person who hasn’t felt stuck in life or in a stagnate situation. So why do I feel stuck in life? It doesn’t mean you have depression or anxiety. Generally, feeling stuck is short-term and situational. Years of therapy are not likely to be needed.
