Where you are right now might not be where you wish you were.
But it’s important to accept it.
You may have a detailed dream life that feels a million miles from you’re current life. And so you focus on the future to distract yourself from your current circumstances.
Perhaps there are feelings of embarrassment, shame, low self-esteem, not feeling good enough or fear associated with where your life is at. By choosing not to accept the present you amplify all those feelings which of course makes you feel worse.
Instead of trying to distance yourself from your current life, try to accept it. It’s okay to not be where you want to be in life.
That doesn’t mean you don’t make an effort to change things and work towards where you want to be. It just means that you don’t bypass the present.
