There are prisons we like to put ourselves in sometimes. It can be the prison of fear. The prison of apathy. The prison of our own mind. Whatever that prison is for you, why are you there? I feel like we sometimes place ourselves in these prisions and don’t realize we are there. We feel this struggle inside of us and wonder what is holding us back. Sometimes we allow other people or circumstances to place us in those prisions. We allow what others think of us to place us in this prison of fear of what others will think of us if we do something. We allow the fact that we didn’t come from a certain type of family or background to keep us from doing something we really want to do.

For me it has been a fear of what others think about me. I came from a not so great background. I knew what poverty was like and what alcholism does to a family. I saw first hand what fear could turn a person into. I made a determination when I was young to not let that happen to me. I was not going to let my past dictate my future. Unfortunatly, I didn’t get rid of the fear of what people thought of me for a long time. I am still working through that. I lived a large part of my life in a prision of fear. I look back on that now and wish that I had gotten out of that prison faster but, we all grow at our own pace. I said that due to the fact that there were more peole I could have helped if I had not been so afraid of what they might think of me. Instead I allowed someone else to get those blessings. There are blessings out there waiting for you. If you continue to allow yourself to be held back you can’t affectively help others out. If you need to find help go get some. People want to help you.

Don’t let what ever prision you are in hold you back anymore. Find help, you are not alone.

Be Strong and Courageous
