One of the most difficult things in life is when you feel stuck and think you need to start life all over again….stress sets in. There are times in life when everything you try seems not to be working. You do all, nothing changes and what remains is frustration because you are unable to get a solution. Just the thought of feeling stuck makes me panic.
You may think your life today is uncomfortable and think the only solution is for you to start somewhere all over again. It is common to hear people say they want to start life from zero or change their environment. Such thoughts have engulfed my mind several times. At the end, I realised it was impossible to start life from zero and changing environment, especially physical location isn’t a solution either.
Starting all over again when you are feeling stuck is more of a temporary solution. You cannot build a new life on an already shaky foundation. Changing your physical location will help but it will not change who you are. You cannot escape from yourself. The problem is within you and not with where you are. Trying to identify this root cause will go a long way in improving all aspects of your everyday living.
Your life is not broken, it’s just out of balance. We usually interpret unhappiness as a sign of ‘nothing is moving’. Feeling stuck is what we perceive and is not the actual reality. Feeling stuck is a signal that you need to change something in your life. Most often, we know deep within us that we need to make those changes, but the fear of doing so stops us.
I know taking a radical change in your life is not an easy thing. Starting all over again from scratch when you are feeling stuck is just like saying you have unsolved problems that you want to cancel and start over from zero. I won’t hide the truth from you – the problem you leave unsolved, even in one location won’t just evaporate when you change location. If changing your location or distancing yourself from that which is happening to you is for you to get a wider perspective, then that’s find.
“You can’t solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it,” Albert Einstein. This means you need to develop a higher perspective to solve a problem when you are feeling stuck. If changing location will help you get an open mind and a wider perspective, then I will encourage you to do that.
How we also interpret a situation can be the source of us feeling stuck. At such times, you need to acknowledge the fact that you are human and not a finished product. Life is a continuous journey where you go to find yourself to become yourself. Who you are today is a result of all the actions you have been taking through out this journey.
Identifying the causes of your feeling stuck is a great step forward in solving the problem. The easiest way to not think of starting life all over again is by you creating a life that you won’t think of escaping from. The only thing that is constant in life is change. Life changes, evolves and renews itself constantly. This means we also need to embrace change, we need to evolve and constantly renew ourselves so that we can feel alive again.
