Sometimes we may feel trapped in a relationship, or a place in time.  I remember when I had Post-Partum Depression after T2 was born.

I felt like I was trapped in this weird place that was at its best, grey and sometimes dark and always overwhelming.  I felt like the only way to escape would be to literally escape – run away and leave those 2 little boys, who were so demanding and I had so little to give.

I never did leave, I stayed and found other ways to be released.  It was an emotional release that I needed.  I needed hope.  Luckily I found it when T2 was 9 months old.  Suddenly the sun was shining again.  It was weird, I hadn’t even realized how sad I had been.

Sometimes with teenagers at home, that trapped feeling comes back.  Now I have a lot more tools to help me quickly move through and find peace and hope.   Prayer is a key tool, as is breathing, meditating and shifting my thoughts.  My favorite tool is the Light Switch.  Which you can learn about here.

Are you feeling trapped?  Learn the Light Switch tool and use it.  Do you have a friend or family member feeling trapped?  Pray for them, let them know you are praying for them!  

“I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”

—Matthew 25:36
