We are born into this world without a choice of gender, appearance, personality, health, and placement. We don’t get to choose our situation. We are left to deal with what we are given.
Sometimes, it is terribly hard to get out of or change what we don’t like. We are left stuck and it seems as if we don’t have a way out many times. Think of the people born in third world countries. They didn’t choose that. How can they possibly leave where they are and change their lives? What about people in slums? For them, at least they have more resources. The answer is to make the best out of everything and to try you’re best at making your life better. Those are major examples of what I am getting at, though.
Downsizing a bit, what about if you’re life is alright, you know that it could be made better for you, but you’re stuck regardless? You’re stuck in a bad situation or surroundings, but at the time being, you just can’t find a way out. It’s so hard seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and being unable to find a way to get to it. A person can only mask a situation for so long before it overtakes their life.
It’s also hard striving for something you’re passionate about or good at when everyone around you fill you with negativity. Self-confidence is built up from the confidence others feed to a person. When outside confidence and support are lacking, it also diminishes one’s own. The answer would be to find people that will make it stronger, not take it away. Seems simple, but not always. Even if that answer is found, how can it be believed? If someone goes their whole life always hearing “no”, how can “yes” be taken seriously and wholeheartedly?
Sometimes, the easy answers in life are the most impossible to achieve. It’s tough to see other people achieving so much in life having full support by the people around them. It’s tough to see other people living a hard life with no one around at all. It’s tough being stuck within ourselves as well.
We all come at times in our lives where we are dying to reach out to someone or having someone reach out to ourselves. We want it so badly, but don’t have the courage or know how to achieve it. I see many people doing terrible things to gain attention. What they want is positive attention, but what they’re getting is negative. As long as they’re getting some sort of attention, that’s enough to keep them sane. Some people are like cold brick walls filled with many, deep emotions on the inside, and seem lifeless. They aren’t getting any attention and aren’t doing whatever it takes to get some and feel better inside their shell, comforting themselves.
Many things can make us stuck in life. Rather it’s life in general, or things within life we are stuck in or with. Most of the time it is our of our control, but other times it’s from a mistake. Being stuck is never fun and it would be nice if we all were thrown a rope a few times in life that would fix being stuck magically.
