How long can you go working at a place that you really do not care for? When is the right time to leave if you’re unhappy? One of the worst things in life is becoming a slave for another person, who truly does not give a shit about you. So why do some people put up with it? Maybe because of comfort? Because of knowing you will always get that paycheck as a security blanket to cover your bills? There is so much opportunity out there, why settle for something that you don’t deserve? You deserve to be happy in this ONE life we are granted. You deserve to live the life you have always imagined. You deserve to be loved and cared for and enjoy every second of it. So, why is it so difficult to break free?
Growth is important for the mind, body and soul. When you work at the same job, making the same income for months or maybe even years, where is the growth? How can you expand? How can you become better? One of my own personal goals in life is to constantly better myself. After falling into a minor depression a year ago, it was almost as if I settled for the “limbo” period of my life. It was a dark place for me, everyone goes through it though. But you know what? Times like that only makes you stronger as a person. You realize who you truly are, what you can handle and how you deal with life. It’s a very valuable lesson, even though it’s a shitty period of time. “Grow through what you go through”. One day when you finally make it to the top, to the peak of what you always desired, you will look back at those dark times and realize you probably wouldn’t have gotten to where you are today, without those moments.
Emotional support is key. There are some people within your life who you know you can always go to for support. Latch onto these people forever. Without emotional support, it will make you feel as though you CAN’T achieve your goals and it will all be on you to fight through those moments. Life is such a ridiculous, what-the-heck-is-happening kind of ride and I only just crossed the start line! If you have the right people to always lift you up when you’re down and support you no matter what, it will make life just a tad bit easier. Emotions can become a pain, but your body and mind always know what is best for you. You must listen and pay attention to your body when things feel uncomfortable. I like to call it my guide through life. When you are aware of your own body and mind, and know how to respond accordingly, it will save your butt in so many ways. It will help you break free.
Fear is the number one reason why people do not go after their dreams. It sucks. Fear makes me so mad, if it was a person I would love to punch them square in the face for how greedy and selfish they are for stopping people achieve their goals. However, when you take a step back and really analyze fear from head to toe, it’s a joke. It’s not real and it’s only you against you within your own head. Trust me, I battle with myself all the time. It becomes exhausting, but you must never give up. You have to smash that transparent wall, step over it and onto the other side. Because on the other side, that’s where dreams come true.
I personally am still learning this whole life situation, but who isn’t? Life does not come with an instruction book and that’s the beauty of it. Sometimes I feel like I’m doing awesome, other times I wish someone would hug me and tell me it’s going to be okay because life is hard. But you know what? YOU are strong and confident. YOU are brave. YOU can achieve anything you put your mind to. YOU can and WILL break free and spread your wings. Most important thing is to never give up on yourself.
