The air around me still feels like a cage

FOR Daily Prompt: Can’t Drive 55

You may not be boundd physically but mentally and emotionally you are chained. You can be caught in memories, emotions, struggles or past life events. Each thing hold you back from the person you have the potential to become. It keeps you pinned down to your past and prevents you from moving forward. I can not imply that I know your life story, but I can say I know the feeling of being caged. I am at the moment feel trapped by emotions, memories and the fear of moving forward and letting go.

The future of those who feel trapped by something seems to be so distant it seems impossible to reach. We feel as if we are not able to escape or let go of what hurts us. If it is a person that makes you feel trapped, chances are they are very dear to you and you feel as if they know you better than anyone else. A person like that may be just what you need to stop feeling changed. ‘How could someone who hurts me make things better?’ you ask, it’s rather simple. That person knows you better than you know yourself and they want to help you. Imagine it from this perspective  they see you chained and bound to your past but they do not realize it is them that is keeping you there. They are trying to help you overcome it. When they are blinded of the situation it makes you a stronger person because they encourage you to overcome many obstacles at once instead of just one problem.

I have learnt from many past experiences that being held back does not lead you anywhere. It is quite obvious and a very realistic expectation. I am currently facing the struggle of feeling trapped but I am allowing myself to experience things that he who made me a victim would not want me to do. I rebel against the one who I love the most and the one who knows me better than I know myself. I can not encourage it enough that you have to allow yourself to move forward. Moving forward is scary and can mean a lot of pain, but it will be okay. It’s time to let go of everything that causes you pain. No one can help you if you refuse to help yourself.

The song that these lyrics came from is Snuff by Slipknot. I feel exactly the way the song describes. I only wish that they weren’t my friend that way I could hurt them in the end.
