When A Rut Causes Side Effects…

For about 5 years now, there’s been one section of my life that I’ve always been confused about. I’m not often a person who doubts things, but this one part of my life gives me constant doubts & makes me feel like I’m trapped in a rut.

These days, I spend my time dedicating myself to the career I want so badly, & to inspiring others… but that other part of my life is still right there – constantly nagging. So, what do you do when you’re stuck in a rut?

Honestly? Each time I’ve found myself in a rut – in every other aspect of my life – I’ve pulled myself out of that rut by separating myself from the part that’s pulling me down… But, this one’s different.

Each time I try to pull myself away there’s an overwhelming feeling of guilt, slight regret, sadness, even a little depression. Although I’ve felt that after making those other changes, none of them are as strong as this, & I just don’t know why.

I’m sure there are many of you who’ve faced the same situation, what did you do? And for those of you facing this decision now, what will you do? For me, it’s mentally simple, yet completely complicated in reality.

Remember that you are in charge of your life, you call the shots, you make the goals, & you’re the only one you should be relying on to do either of those. DO NOT assume things will fall into your lap, you need to work for them. And on the slight chance something does fall into your lap, don’t take it for granted. Treasure it with all that you have.
