Knowledge, Insight & Other Various Musings




Confronting a Florida Family Law issue is often akin to finding yourself stuck in the lyrics of the classic Talking Heads song. You know the one.

And you may ask yourself, well

How did I get here?

And you may ask yourself

Am I right? Am I wrong?

And you may say to yourself

“My God! What have I done?”

Change is inevitable. The irony is that despite it being an unavoidable part of life, you often find that it’s accompanied by resistance.

This is because growth is associated with fear.

After all, you’ve been watching the days go by, same as it ever was.

And this can, somehow, be comforting. And yet…

And yet. It takes a special courage to refuse to stay in your comfort zone.

That’s why so many people remain in unhappy relationships, accepting the status quo because it’s easier than demanding more. Acquiescing to treatment thatwould have once made your blood boil because; well, that’s just how it is.

And, yet.

In your heart, you know you deserve more.

Life is short. Are you really willing to waste your one, beautiful, crazy chance to go after what you want and live the life you’ve always imagined just because it’s easier to settle?

It’s time to stop beating yourself up for wanting more. If change is a constant, why should it be anyone’s fault that things are no longer working the way you wanted them to?

And yet. You find yourself questioning your decision. Is it worth it? What will happen if I step outside my comfort zone? Are my feelings justified? And so, you stay. You accept someone else calling the shots. You accept that you’ve settled for less than you deserve. You’ve made your bed and now you have to lay in it.

And yet. Your anxiety does not ebb. Your fear of the unknown keeps you trapped. Your days become long and, often, unbearable. You start to lash out at others to avoid facing your own discontent. You realize you’re not even living, but merely existing.

The problem is that you’re resisting what is. Life is merely a stringing together of phases and transitions and you owe yourself the chance to live meaningfully. To start over. To make yourself and your happiness a priority. To stay true to yourself.
