I was chatting with someone a few months ago and she was flat out stuck. No forward progress at all. On top of that, there was a level of resentment and contempt that was invisible to her and yet clear to everyone around her.
I believe that she started to see the reality of her situation because she was so derailed. The good news is that as my friend started unpacking and getting rid of her resentment and grudges and actually expressing genuine appreciation to those around her, things improved.
Luck? Timing? I think not. Appreciation changes everything for the better. Experiment and you will see.
Have a great day,
