How to get out of being stuck

 

stuckToday’s group looked at feelings of being stuck.  Sadly, feeling stuck is quite a common theme for people. People may want to make a move from their current situation but feel that something holds them back from achieving this. Fear can play a big part in holding people back. Those who are frustrated with their present situation may still find it a massive risk to initiate change away from it. Staying with what you know may feel like the safer option but may keep you in the unhealthy cycle of feeling stuck.  Another perspective to consider is how not making any change at all may actually become a bigger risk to your well-being.

We looked at how group members processed change and what risks were. We then did an cognitive tool exercise on the benefits of making positive movement. It’s always worth remembering while attempting something new, if it were not to work out it’s not the end of the world, you can keep looking for something that is a better fit.  You have tried.

Below is an example of someone who is stuck in an unhappy situation;

  1. Great information here! Along with some good reminders about fear. It can be tough to walk into the unknown especially around new therapy techniques, and this is something I just had to deal with walking into neurofeedbacking for my traumatic brain injury for the first time. Sometimes you have to trust the process, and like you said it is not the end of the world if it doesn’t work out. Just need to keep fighting on! Thank you for sharing this!
