Being handcuffed in life can be a frustrating experience. And I don’t mean sitting curbside with metal around your wrists.
It could be a relationship, job, family members, or even fear. The great thing about these metaphorical restraints is that you have the ability to take them off if you so choose to. Battling fear or a toxic relationship can be extremely difficult in the short term but you’ll get through life much more efficiently. Cutting ties with a friend or just ‘putting yourself out there’ in order to get your career off the ground isn’t often pretty. But as they say, freedom isn’t free.
There’s nothing like living without the handcuffs of life… but being free comes at a cost.
Whenever I feel that I’m encountering self inflicted wounds I do my best to change course.
Having the ability to self evaluate and also to surround yourself with people whom can help sharpen your weaknesses is Paramount.
