'We hardly ever go anywhere, or do anything". This saying may be familiar to me. If so, likely my life at present has many moments of boredom, and frustration.
How illuminating it might be, if I just did one simple thing - replace the word "we" with "I". Do I depend on my SO to be with me, before I'll venture out and try new interests, or even familiar activities?
If so, then my boredom is a natural consequence of my choice. I have chained my life to more of what my partner does or doesn't do, and naturally feel like a prisoner as a result. Except I'm the one holding the keys.
Maybe I feel scared, or lonely when I venture out alone. Whatever the reasons are, when I look inside for them I'm treating myself with love and respect. I'm being more honest with myself. That honesty can clear the cobwebs in my head, and help me see new possibilities. Taking walks to search out the laughter and smiling faces of children at play may be a gift I never gave myself before. How many other gifts are out there waiting just for me?
