There’s a saying: When you’re going through hell, don’t stop.
We all experience times when what we’re facing seems overwhelming. It’s easy to get stuck. Don’t stop moving. Even baby steps will help to get you out of whatever mess you’re in.
I’ve seen so many people get mired in a situation to the point of completely giving up. Despair takes over, and it becomes a quicksand that sucks them in and won’t seem to let them go.
When you find yourself in a difficult situation seek counsel—whether that’s talking with someone or reading books by people who’ve moved out of similar circumstances. Find someone to help push or pull you along. If you can confide in at least one other person, someone who will help to pull or push you from one place to another, the road out will be less difficult.
If the situation you’re in involves another person, don’t wait for the other person to decide to move. You can do nothing to change him or her. The only person you have any control over whatsoever is yourself. For instance, if your marriage is bad and your spouse won’t go for counseling, go alone.
Keep moving. Keep placing one foot in front of the other. It may not seem like you’re making any progress right now, but soon you’ll look back and see how far you’ve come.
