Hiding in your own personal cave

from: obsidian portal.com
For some of us, hiding away in your own personal cave feels deliciously safe. It's a familiar environment over which you have control. You can block out your fears and the demands and expectations of others.

But after a while you begin to notice your cave is actually an impediment. For it also blocks out your friends and family, and  your hopes and dreams of a better life. Secretly, you wish for more, you just don't have the courage to venture out to find it. You get the feeling that your spirit can shrivel inside that cave.

Communicating with others, real, live people, in person, can be a healing thing for the mind beset with fears. Reach out to someone. Leave the house and your cave behind for a couple of hours.

If you're struggling to find a reason to come out of your cave, perhaps these websites will help.
