We all like to feel comfortable. But doing something new, especially taking an action to change, usually doesn’t feel comfortable. It feels awkward and strange.
Sometimes depression and anxiety can block us from taking the actions we want and need to take. Not taking these actions can increase our depression and anxiety, and we feel even less motivated to act. This cycle can keep us trapped.
If depression and anxiety are so severe they’re stopping you from taking actions to live your life, you may need to seek professional help and get those issues under control. That in itself is taking action.
Challenge: The hardest thing about taking positive steps to change can be having enough hope to believe that what we do matters and the steps we take will work. (Melody Beattie. Daily Meditations [Dec 1, 2014])
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you take action even when you feel uncomfortable.
