Remove all outlets for convenient escapism and excuses that justify complacency, until you are forced to recognize that the oppression you experience are circumstances that you have consented to. You are not a slave destined to mourn your submission. Your agony is unrealized potential. Focus on utilizing your pain as motivation to persist through the discomfort of anxiety, redirecting your discontent in a way that entails expression rather than repression. Begin to vividly experience your excruciating inner turmoil bleed out into the bliss of self empowerment.
