I am gathering information for a writing project I have begun and, if you are willing, I would be most grateful and honored to receive your answers to a few questions:
1. Are there any specific areas of your life where you have felt intractably “stuck”? (This could be in the realm of health, relationships, learning, work, finances, habits, creativity, “comfort in your own skin”, a fear you have not been able to overcome or transcend, acceptance of something, or anything else at all). If so, what is the area of stuckness?
2. As best as you can articulate or delineate, what has been the greatest obstacle(s) for you in breaking the cycle of stuckness in this area?
3. Can you think of a different problem you had that also felt intractable, but which eventually was successfully resolved? What was the problem? And what thing, or combination of things, helped you move past the stuckness?
You can answer the above in any degree of detail you choose: a few words, lengthy essays, or anything in between. I will read all responses, however long or short they may be. I realize that these questions are very personal in nature, and I promise to keep whatever you do share with me confidential. The intention is for the information collected here to be incorporated into the final version of this project (whatever form or shape that ends up taking) in such a way as to be useful and helpful to others in similar predicaments. You can send your answers to me directly at: mrhominid (at) gmail (dot) com.
If at all possible, please send me your responses by Sunday, January 31st.
Thanks, and hope everyone is staying healthy and safe!
