It’s easy to get stuck in life.
In fact, for most of us, it just happens. One day we just realise it.
We get that nagging feeling that “doing this, here, was not what I was meant to be doing.” We get that nagging feeling that there’s somewhere else we should be. We dream of escaping constantly.
Life has a little bit less zing to it. Happy things don’t get us quite as happy, and sad things – wait, “that’s life”, we tell ourselves – so we suck it up.
We start telling our friends who are going through tough times “Welcome to the real world!”
At times we convince ourselves and others of the following;
“Dreams? Who can afford them.”
“At least I’m paying my bills and I have a place to live.”
“What’s the use? I’m just going to settle here. It’s good enough.”
“Ehh that’s only possible for a select few people.”
How many times do we start off right. We’ve got a big dream. We’re going to fulfill our destiny. But along the way, we face opposition. Adversity arises. TOO MANY TIMES!
For most of us, we hit that “stuck/fucked” spot right when we get the first secure job. It pays us good enough so that we don’t worry, we get a good enough apartment, then a good enough partner, then a good enough marriage. And then life is “Eh, good enough ” for the rest of our lives.
Fuck good enough .
I realised I was “stuck” and I was “settling” when the following things started happening;
If you identify with any one of those 5 points, I urge you please to take that leap of faith and become “unstuck”!
Would also be keen to know from you if there are any other signs of being stuck I haven’t mentioned above, so please do comment on the post 😉
