It may come as a surprise for some that the feelings are not actually telling you that you are lost and stuck. Feelings cannot be connected to your circumstances. Ever. They may look like it, and with society constantly pushing 'techniques' on us, searching for 'what is making you feel this way', and pressure to be positive actively, keeps us hooked in the cycle, instead of letting us experience the natural ebb and flow of life. So feelings are down... left alone they pop up again.. and then they dip... then they rise - up and down all day long, all perfectly normal, we all do it all the time. So if you happen to be on a down as a thought of feeling lost and stuck comes past, we are encouraged to jump right in and dig around in it, telling ourselves that we shouldn't be feeling this way, another black cloud heaped on, taking us further and further down the rabbit hole.
Another day we are in good spirits and the same thought of feeling lost and stuck comes past. We don't even notice it... and guess what? It passes on by.
Yes, I agree that the answers are all in your head, yet I say 'we DON'T have to get to them.
Happy to chat to anyone interested in looking in the direction that I am pointing.
