Sometimes we feel as if we are stuck in one place and can't get out no matter how hard we try. We feel as if life is passing us by. We feel frustrated and sometimes blame our loved ones for our misery. The more we feel stuck, the more our self-esteem dives and the more we may feel sad and depressed.
Check yourself, where are you stuck, is it at work, is it in your relationship with your partner, your children your friends? Where? Think about this for a moment.
Perhaps you find yourself alone more often than before. Perhaps your phone is not ringing as much as it used to or perhaps you spend less time with your partner or either of you deliberately avoid each other.
Are you taking care of yourself, your spirit? Are you making sure that you get enough rest? Are you doing the things that make you feel happy? The worst we can do is to engage in activities that make us feel horrible. These are usually activities that someone imposes upon us and we feel pressured to say "yes" to when in fact we want to say "no". This bottled up frustration can play havoc on your psyche. It makes us feel powerless and the more powerless we feel, the more miserable we are and when we are like the energy we give off is like a repellent to others with whom we come in contact. When we act in this way we are not loving ourselves.
When we love and respect ourselves, when we do the things that enliven us we are in a better able to extend our love to others. That love from ourselves flow to others naturally and they are drawn to us, they like the feeling of being near to this source of good feeling. When we say yes or no and respect our decision we are empowered, we are confident and we feel good.
When you feel stagnated, stuck, unfulfilled start with yourself and start paying attention to what you are doing and how you feel when you are doing whatever you are doing. That will give you a clue to the problem.
Whenever we step out of our own shoes and start wearing someone else's shoes, we immediately feel the bunions of our emotions start hurting like hell. Our shoes are made for our feet.
Take care of your spirit, be present in the moment and do what makes you feel good. Be conscious.
I will pay attention to what I am doing and how I am feeling in the moment. I will do what makes me feel good and stay away from doing those things that make be feel disempowered.
