It is strange what will invoke emotions in people. Sometimes the simplest thing can cause an enormous emotional reaction. For example, over the weekend my neighbour came over to let me know that they would be moving out next month. Rationally there is no reason that the fact of them moving out should have upset me. I had only talked to him a handful of times, other than that there was just the casual wave as I drove by if he happened to be outside. Emotionally I took this hard.

A lot of people know that sometimes, when it comes to the day-to-day things in life, I have issues with change. I don’t think it was because of the change in having a new neighbor, I think it is more of the fact that he is moving on with what he wanted to accomplish. Maybe the idea of him moving left me thinking about my fear of change.  His move also left me pondering why I was still here and why I hadn’t moved. I felt stuck and unhappy where I was at in my life. Thankfully I had a couple of people talk some sense into me and let me know that I am never stuck, the idea of being “stuck” is just something that my mind created – an illusion. I am working on becoming unstuck here, at least changing the way I perceive my current situation. Thanks to the conversation with my neighbor, I was able to identify an emotional blockage within myself that I need to work on. It is amazing what a simple conversation can achieve.
