I get it, life is kicking your ass right now. You’re a smart girl/guy…logically you know life isn’t always fair. Your intelligent mind can make sense of just about any problematic equation the universe throws at you. But sometimes…you’re just like…
I completely understand. Things have been a little jarring on my end. Dare I say, I think I’m finally coming out of the rain? Not quite yet. How about I do a personal log for- “What to do when you feel trapped?” Yes, why not 😁
This is what I’ve done so far…
Try to be the bigger person – it has helped keep some peace within my space. But hasn’t helped lessen the resentment.
Figure out what part I play in my unwanted chaos – I own it. I’m not completely innocent.
Search for good. Something good normally comes out of something bad – I’ve been able to release built-up anger. Things I’ve carried with me for most of my life.
Laid out the facts – I control my own reality. My current situation is a result of my own choices. If someone holds out their hand for help, you can either grab hold of them or let go. And I chose to hold on. All the messes that come with it I agreed to.
What are my next steps?
Find a way to accept things. Not by force. I can talk myself into it a million times but my heart is still resisting. Is it ego? Self-pity? Am I afraid? Have I not been completely honest? I’m still trying to figure it out.
Meditation has been one thing that I really struggle with. And guess what? I find myself meditating more and more. What does this mean? I’m being forced to learn how to calm my mind. I’m one of those people who naturally overthink. Can you imagine when I’m stressed? 🤦 When my energy is balanced, I have an easier time sitting still.
Recently I’ve been feeling so much anxiety. Instead of meditating more I’ve been skipping days here and there. Self-sabotaging 🤦🤦🤦 In return, I feel so much worse. No distraction has worked. Not even Netflix!
I’m back on track now. How? It’s an easy fix but I was too busy feeling sorry for myself to begin sooner. Sometimes you just wanna wallow…ya know? I pulled up some Abraham on YouTube and it got me back to meditating daily. In all honesty…calming my mind is one of the most difficult but most effective practices that actually makes me feel better. I’m sure you’ve all read about it. Spirituality, yoga, astrology…it’s so mainstream now. I remember when people use to just rolled their eyes at me. Granted, some still do HAHAHAA
So…this is where I’m at. Trying to find a way to trust in the process. With my heart, not just my head. Will be back when I come up with something else 😉 If you’re feeling trapped, maybe try a few methods I listed above. Hope it helps a little!
