Sometimes the barriers, and shackles are people we must let go of. But the worst-case scenario is enslavement of the mind. Take the lead with your heart and soul. Break free… do not allow your limiting thoughts to get in the way of taking the next step towards a fulfilling life.
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.
