Off the Path

These last few months I have been feeling a little lost in my life. Like I have been in a rut and can't get out. I cant really figure out why as everything has been going fairly well. We have all had times in our lives where things just don't go as planned but it is how we react that sets us apart from others people. We each deal with our emotions and thoughts differently. Some deal with things alone and some broadcast it to the world and ask for help. Each situation requires its own unique approach and each one of us will handle identical situations differently. I am and will most likely always be more of a loner. I have spent most of my life dealing with life by myself as an independent person. It took some really really horrible experiences and situations for me to realize that getting help isn't a bad thing and that I do have friends and family that are there for me and can help me survive and thrive as a person in this messed up world. I still forget that this help exists. It isn't in my nature to turn and ask for help. I have even been called stubborn because of this one fact.

Sometimes, we have to step outside our comfort zone and be more than we are by nature. In the fast paced world we live in today, if we can't ask for help when we need it, we get left behind and we will fall short of reaching our life goals. It sets us back just enough to make us not try anymore. I know I will always be playing catch-up, but I won't give up and just be content. Someday I will have someone that relies on me to get them through the tough times. I will be ready for that day!
