We all have moments when we say enough is enough. We feel that something is very wrong, our relationship is not how it should be, our life seems wrong we feel stuck in lives that donâ€™t make us happy.
We go in search of answers, we speak to friends and family and all this does is create more confusion, more frustration.
We may read books or go on websites like this one. Then at the point of action where we meet those who can really help us we stop.
The courage we had that started our search has gone, and we go to a place of fear in search of all the problems that taking that final step would make us face.
- We fear it wonâ€™t work
- We fear we might have to face our demons
- We fear the financial cost of going and not going
The fears we discover then paralyse us and so we lose the courage to take action. So we convince ourselves in the moment we are looking after ourselves by taking no action, but deep down we know that our fears are creating a prison of safety where we have the illusion of freedom.
Keep the courage
If you know that you need help, keep the courage. Whatever you think you will experience will not be true and will be made up from a limited knowledge of how professionals can help you. The courage that helps you to take that step opens a world about you that will free you from the many prisons you have designed to protect you.
Even when you are in the process of self-discovery, keep the courage because you will have to face you, the real you, but temporary pain against a life of freedom is a worthy trade by any standard, and for those who have been through this process their result to them is priceless.
