Most of us have heard that saying before. “I’d like to ______; but, my hands are tied.” It’s basically saying that the situation is out of their control, and not up to them. Sometimes it’s absolute, and sometimes it’s relative to the person. I had become good at accepting the victim role, which became the crutch I would cling to. A few years ago, an injustice was done upon me. It became very debilitating. I am not a weak person; I had spent most of my life in manic phases. A very euphoric state. I had been a creatively driven person. I believed I could make something spectacular of myself. Manic trumps depression any day. When struck with post-traumatic stress, depression has a way of lingering. I couldn’t see myself out of burdening situations. Essentially, my hands were tied.
It’s time to gnaw my damn hand off. I don’t want to feel bound by any excuses, and look back and regret. I have it in me to see through anything I want to do. I do have to push myself. We all do it everyday.
The struggle is real; but, so is your dream. So go get it!!
