    Default What things hold you back from doing the things that you really want to?

    What things hold you back from doing the things that you really want to? What makes us a self-prisoner? This is to say how do we imprison ourselves in our lives?

    Quote: "Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.” Rumi

    Quote: "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." Joseph Campbell

    Quote: "Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds." Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Quote: "To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you." Lewis B. Smedes

    Physical limiations. I'm not a complicated person, I just want the same oppertunities " normal" people have.

    You win this one random circumstance!

    What holds me back?

    Well, being powerless and penniless about covers it.

    Nothing. I can't do everything yet, but I have it planned out so I'll be able to soonish.

    Good luck, your universe is different to mine.

    The answer to this question is fluid. Sometimes I think I'm the only thing standing in my way. Other times, I think I'm a victim of circumstance. Really, it's a combination of the two.

    For example, I'd love to go to New Zealand. It's a lifelong dream of mine. But that costs money I don't have and time I can't afford. If I worked hard and saved, I could probably afford the trip in two years. But I don't want to go by myself, and I don't know anyone who'd be willing to make a commitment to scrimp and save for the trip like I'm willing to.

    So what's holding me back from the trip? Myself for not wanting to go alone, and others for not wanting to go with me. Self and circumstance.
