Be proud of yourself for finally speaking up for the things that you want. Remember, if you state your wishes and others decline them, you still win by allowing for the opportunity to exit whatever place you’ve discovered that you’re in, only wasting time. You can now move on and find whatever it is that you are seeking with others seeking those same things, too. Even a miserable life is a hard one to leave, so sit with your discomforts; acknowledge them. And if you do, suddenly, one day you’ll wake up and you’ll realize that somehow – over the course of days, weeks or even years – discomfort has drifted away at some point during the night. And life feels like it might be alright again.
