Stuck Is Not Your Story part 3, published January 31st, 2021, talked about brokenness causes stuck, today we are talking about our choices causes us to stay stuck.
Choices is an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. It’s the right or ability to make, or possibility of making, such a selection.
We perish for lack of knowledge, as is said in Hosea 4:6 (one of my favorite scriptures 😊).
In order to make right choices to become unstuck, we need to gain the right knowledge because when we don’t have the right knowledge we make choices that cause us to stay stuck.
Some of the choices I made, due to lack of knowledge, led me to being stuck. One of the choices was to eat emotionally, that led me to being stuck.
I was once stuck in the vicious cycle of emotional eating for many years. I was eating when something was wrong, and as a result of that, I gained excess weight on my body. With not liking the excess weight on my body, I then, became stuck in the vicious cycle of dieting, and that’s not all, I gained terrible eating habits, thus forming a wrong relationship with food. All of this was going on before I gained the right knowledge to become unstuck from it.
Is this resonating with you? For yourself, have you made choices based on not having the right knowledge that have caused you to become stuck?
The question is: how do we gain the right knowledge to make the right choices?
Firstly, we have to recognize that we are stuck. This is the first and major step. If we are not aware there is an issue, we won’t be able to do something about it.
Secondly, we can seek the knowledge by doing research.
Thirdly, we can hire a coach to help us through.
I have done all three steps. When I was eating emotionally, I didn’t know something was wrong. I wasn’t aware that I was eating because I was unhappy. When started doing research, I learned there was a term for what I was doing, emotional eating. A little later, I hired a coach, this has helped me a great deal too.
It was gaining the right knowledge that helped me to make the right choices to get unstuck from the vicious cycle of emotional eating.
There is always a solution. You may not want to hear it, but when you make the right choices, it helps you to become unstuck.
However, you first have to want it, then do something different, for instance, gain the right knowledge, then commit to overcome in the situation to become unstuck.
I encourage you to analyze and evaluate your life to see where you are regards to being broken and stuck, and depending on the outcome of your evaluation, take steps to be healed and move forward and become unstuck, it’s doable, I’m speaking from experience. Know that you are not alone it this, you can reach out to me for guidance.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog, and know that “there is always hope to become unstuck!”
