Narcissistic Abuse Recovery, Listening To Yourself.

Listening to yourself, your mind and your body is a powerful thing. Used correctly, you can always help yourself. Listening to your instincts is vital.

When your feeling stuck in any given life situation, it means something from your life to bring you happiness from within is missing.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to get started, or it’s just feeling too hard to get to where you want to be, or if you’re not even sure where you want to be right now, that’s ok, you are not alone in feeling this way.

Going out there and achieving what you want for yourself means never giving up on yourself, working towards new dreams brick by brick. If something comes along or an opportunity comes along, take it. Many of us put it off due to how much work is involved. Yet when you just take those steps, when it’s something you’re passionate about, it quickly becomes easier, giving yourself the willpower and the can-do attitude, once you’ve got these along with talking to yourself Correctly, you can and you will go far, as far as you want to go. You genuinely are limitless.

Feeling stuck in life is normal, and you’re far from alone feeling this way. You just have to take those steps each and every day until you no longer feel stuck. Your body is designed with an instinct to send signals to your mind. Even when your mind telling you something different when you go against those instincts, you suffer. You need to tune your mind into listening to those instincts.

When you feel tired, you get a signal. When you feel hungry, you get a signal. Feeling lonely is a signal. However, you need to learn the difference between being lonely and being alone. You can be with someone and feel alone. You can be alone and not feel lonely.

When feeling stuck, you get a signal. When your are feeling scared or anxious, your body’s telling you that you’re in danger. There is a difference between present danger at the moment, rational anxiety, and in your mind, irrational anxiety.

Humans need food, rest, shelter, water, air, company, passion, these are fundamental needs, and when they’re not being met, our body’s send a signal.

When you’re feeling stuck, it’s because you’re missing one of the fundamental needs of humans, which is growth.

When you’re not growing in your relationship, your job, your life, you will feel stuck. Fearing the unknown can keep you stuck, so you need to release that fear. Sometimes in life, we become stuck in what we believe is our comfort zone for fear of stepping out into the unknown, yet once we face that fear and step out, we see our original comfort zone was never that comfortable.

Mistakes happen in life, we fail, but we have to get back up. Failure in life is your first attempt at learning; you are experimenting.

If you’re feeling stuck, it’s your body telling you, you’ve stopped growing, your mind needs to find new ways to grow deliberately. Tuning into your instincts can help.

You have a choice. You don’t have to procrastinate. You don’t have to be lazy. You don’t have to stay stuck. You don’t have to listen to your fears. You have to listen to your instincts and your body, then consciously create a mindset that will take those steps to get you to grow.

There may be days when you take a couple of steps backwards, and that ok, learn and go again.

Dream those dreams, think big of where you want to be, then start at the beginning, take it to step by step, brick by brick, moment by moment, if you do nothing, nothing will change, if you expect results without putting in the effort, nothing will change, you’ve got to work on it for yourself,

External problems that you can not fix are not your problem. You are your problem, those you can improve, you can improve, those you can not walk away, don’t listen to the naysayers, listen to you, the possibilities are endless when you work on life for yourself, then give back to those who need. Life is give and take. If you give all the way, you’ll lose if you take all the way, you’ll lose.

It’s doesn’t matter if it’s hard if it’s painful, if you’re tired if you’re busy, think like that, and you stay stuck, and yes it’s hard, yes it can be painful, yet, it’ll be all the more worth it. If it’s painful now, at the other side of that pain is a great joy. If you’re tired, lay one part of the foundations and then rest. If you’re busy, find the time to lay that one brick each and every day. We all have. One thousand four hundred forty minutes every day, use them wisely, build those foundations, lay the path to your destination, but those bricks down one by one and keep going until you achieve what you want to, then go again. Keep on going, and never give up on yourself.

There is no time scale to achieving the dream, you’re never too old, and it’s never too late. You have to have the self-discipline to lay however many bricks you can, every day, to get to where you want to be.

Don’t listen to your own excuse. That’s your inner thought process planting fear into your mind, which is holding you back; instead, find the solution and keep working to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve. Starting today, at the moment, then keep going until you reach it.

You are enough, you can, and you will.
