You know that feeling where no matter how hard you try and push forward in life, you feel like something is holding you back and you get nowhere?
I’ve talked about this with a few different people – those feelings of being held back.
Sometimes the conversation is just a case of “hidden barriers”, or moves onto that all-too-common fear of rejection.
Sometimes it gets to being about something even scarier.
Years ago I knew this guy who was your typical laddy bloke – extrovert, a loud laugh, confident, fitted in well, played sports, enjoyed banter and going out, got overly excited about new Bond movies – that kind of thing. He met a girl at University, they’re still together, and he became a solicitor. But one late drunken night back then, after some pointless argument about something, he shared a secret with me.
