Feeling stuck? Here’s why…

If you’re feeling stuck, one hidden emotional trigger could be messing you up.

Here are some signs you or your loved one might be feeling stuck: being defensive, self-blame or blaming others, self- loathing, toxic shame, feelings of inadequacy, perfectionism, being overly apologetic and compliant, and procrastinating.  We’ve all had moments where we’ve felt “stuck”. Being stuck feels like a stagnation that is beyond our control. It causes us to feel hopeless about a situation in life and powerless to change it.

Feeling stuck causes you to feel confused and uninspired. It is no surprise to feeling stuck often means there is some underlying anxiety, sadness, trauma, depression and substance or food abuse. Feeling stuck can look and feel like: self- doubt, confusion, fear of making mistakes, procrastination, feeling powerless, ambivalence, discomfort in your body, no longer feeling excited or curious, self-neglect and unrealistic self-imposed expectations about how things “should be”.  

If you are feeling “stuck” and unclear of what you need in order to feel better, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Mo today.
