What should I do??
« on: 2015 07 09 - 10:58 »

I am in a really shitty situation at the moment and I really just don't know what to do with myself. It's one thing after another.


I really just feel like completely removing myself from this situation and doing something completely different, even moving abroad for a little while.


What's in my heart is to travel and get out there before I get too old (I'm currently 25). The only thing really keeping me here at the moment is my dog. We rescued her 18 months ago and the two of us have formed a really strong bond. It would be heartbreaking to leave her and I would feel so guilty for abandoning her just like her previous owners did, even if she adapted and was ok.


What do you all think I should do? I really need some help as I'm struggling to come to an answer myself. I would really appreciate any answers I get.


Thank you

I'm assuming you are going through a combination of major things as well as minor things, and you say you want to remove yourself from this situation, even going abroad. Do you feel like you are in a rut?


I think the hardest part of getting out of this situation is done - you know what you want in your heart. Self-knowledge or awareness is always the hardest step, because it's so easy to just lose yourself and give in. Perhaps you feel like this to a degree, but that desire to travel, to expand, is a part of your own soul trying to manifest and express itself. It is uniquely you. Sometimes we just have to have faith and hope that things work out, in the way we dream. But we have to act, and allow synchronicity to lead us there. "A thousand mile journey starts with a single step." What more might you create for yourself in your life?


Trust that in time you will go abroad and do amazing things, but in the mean time, plan a quick getaway? Is it possible to just drive out into the country to a dog-friendly B&B for a night? Airbnb is a good resource. Even if for a day, just go for a drive, your dog and you. I say include your dog because he/she is also a manifestation of your life's true desires. Even if without retreats or weekend escapes, to get out of a rut, first we have to do things differently, on a daily basis. Whether it's trying a different route to/from work, leaving your place of work for lunch to do something, anything. It is so good for the soul, as is simple daily self care. I hope this helps!


Or perhaps you can vent your frustrations here? It can be really healing (and I will read them).
