Is it connecting you from those you care about, or separating you?

To be actually trapped is to have no options, no choices, no possible outcomes other than the one you fear.
Most of the time, when we think we’re trapped, we’re actually unhappy with the short-term consequences of making a choice. Make the choice, own the outcome and you can start in a new place.
This is often frightening and painful, which is one reason it might be easier to pretend that we’re actually trapped.
Are you actually trapped or don’t you just want to make a choice for fear of the consequences of the choices you’re going to make? The short blog above by Seth Godin is a good wake-upper for many of us who like to believe we’re trapped in life.
Stressful and emotional situations are what keeps us from making the right decisions. These, however, are just symptoms of something deeper inside that needs to be addressed. To resolve your emotional blocks you have to know your triggers, and develop effective management techniques and coping skills so you stay in control and be able to face your fears and handle challenges in life.
One effective and powerful alternative approach to handling these emotional blocks is by practicing EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping. It swiftly reduces, and usually, permanently removes, disturbing feelings that create emotional distress. It’s easy to do on your own or together with an EFT practitioner. By removing the emotional blocks to your innate flow, mind and body balance is restored.
It is best to look underneath to discover and tap on the root cause of what pushes you to come up with the decisions you make in life. EFT can effectively address this negative emotion, which is your obstacle to ultimately achieve success.

One of the greatest stumbling blocks to achieving life goals is fear. When you are afraid you activate your flight-or-fight response. Fear makes you run away or evade and the only way to lessen your fear is if you decide to face it. Because fear is nothing more than a state of mind.
