Buried deep within a hole.
Not moving forward.
Not moving backward.
And the only way to go anywhere is to pull yourself out of that hole.
Sometimes, you wait for someone else to offer a hand and help you out of that hole. This works but involves waiting for someone to come along to rescue you.
Sometimes you have to claw your way to the top. Struggling in order to climb your way out.
When you’ve been stuck for a long time, sometimes, you have to bide your time, dip into your energy reserve, and make the ultimate effort to climb out of that hole. Give all you’ve got just to get unstuck.
Stop being stuck.
Find your way out of your hole.
Whatever it takes.
