Being stuck in life can hinder your life, learn to become a person of action and walk into the future you have envisioned for yourself!
Looking back over the years at all the ups and downs, the good times and bad times I have to say there were some points in my life that I became stuck and stagnate. Usually over situations or issues that took place that I did not expect that caused a great deal of turmoil and pain in my life. Now that I am older, I realize that trials and tribulations are part of the human experience and that no one will get by without experiencing trials and tribulations of some form in their life no matter who they are.
Move Past the Pain
In realizing this, I do firmly believe that 'what does not kill you will make you stronger but only if you learn to move past the pain.'
Let me quickly explain; life finds a way to introduce pain and hardship to a lot of people in their late teens and early twenties (early adulthood). When you start to provide for yourself and sometimes others, responsibility and commitment start to impede on your hopes and dreams. When we are younger it seems that the entire world is before us and we are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (alert, chipper and ready to go) but as life continues its day-to-day grind, for some of us our outlook on life becomes dim (dark) as we have been continually beaten down by the trails and experiences that we encounter. For some people (not all) it puts them in a place where they stop moving forward and no longer experiencing the fullness of life. So instead of people experiencing the fullness of life, they are now in a place where they are just existing. To just exist is not what God purposed us for but people fall into this state of mind when they have given up their hope that there can be a brighter future for them and their family.
Dreams Will Die.....
To get a brief understanding of what just existing looks like all you have to do is look at the person who has given up on all their hopes and dreams. The person who now just lives day-to-day who has lost their internal joy and when they speak, most of the time only negative things come out of their mouth. The dreams that were once before them they no longer acknowledge because for them they no longer exist as they have become nothing more than a pipe dream (a dream that is no longer probable). This thought process allows the mind to fall into a state where a person starts to believe that this (fallen state) is their lot in life and they are destined to be no more then what they are experiencing now.
