Every once in a while we hit a wall in our life. Hitting the wall means we have reached an impasse without a "door" or "window". This is when we have to backtrack, change our attitude or stay within the confines of our current situation. However, staying within the confines of our restricted space for a prolonged time may not be beneficial for our mental health.
We can hit the wall due to employment limitations, current circle of
friends, relationship changes, or even environmental limitations. Think
people, places, or things! All of these three categories can contribute to
hitting the wall.
Acknowledging that you have hit the wall is the first step. Being
patience with yourself is critical at this time. Looking for alternative
solutions may take longer than you hoped for. It may also be not the
choice you want to choose, but one that is the best for you in the long
run. Most importantly remember change takes time and is a challenge.
