You’ve heard the saying: When one door closes another door opens. Have you found this to be true?
I have a client who feels trapped in a career that doesn’t bring her joy or satisfaction. She is frustrated every day by “having to work with people she doesn’t respect.”
I ask her, “Is someone holding a gun to your head forcing you to go there every day?” She doesn’t see that she is choosing this.
She wails, “I don’t know what else I’d do!” I say, “As long as you are trapped, you are not available for that knowledge to reach you.”
I wish she trusted herself more, and would look for the EXIT sign.
