Self-imposed prisons

What’s a self imposed prison?

Einsten said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.”

That says something doesn’t it?

A self imposed prison to me means misery and being stuck. We are often our own worst enemies aren’t we?

What are our self imposed prisons? Fear, loneliness, a comfort zone?

One of mine is fear. Every time one of my client’s parents wants to talk to me my head goes there. It sounds a little like this: “That’s it, they are going to let me go.” With absolutely no evidence to the contrary, that’s where my mind goes.

I’ve been told fear stands for false evidence appearing real. Seems pretty accurate in this instance doesn’t it?

What would I do if I wasn’t afraid? What would be possible?

It’s food for thought.
