… you’re NOT ready to leave it.
Obviously there’s something there for you that has yet to be uncovered.
If you’re trying to move forward, but can’t, it’s important to recognize that you’re being held back for a reason. There’s something in the place where you currently stand that requires your attention — there’s a learning there for you — there’s a lesson there that needs to be integrated before you can move onto the next stage.
The process of being held back is quite purposeful because your path builds onto itself and each stage of life entails prerequisite learning. Therefore, if you haven’t internalized a lesson at a given stage, you’ll be prevented from moving onto the next stage.
What are you not seeing? What are you not looking at? It’s usually something that you’ve shoved away in a closet with resolve never to open. Rest assured that your life will not let you move forward until you open it and do the work on moving past it.
If you’re stuck in the same place, you’re not ready to leave it. You may WANT to leave it, but you lack the learning necessary to move forward. The universe will always protect you from moving onto a stage until you have the tools to deal with it. Don’t spend your time being frustrated, spend it cleaning out your closets. Skeletons don’t go away, they’ll only haunt you until you pull them out of your closet — then they are just a pile of bones.

Thank you for good article! It's really suit my current situation. As you say, sometimes, things don't go well, even though I try to move forward. It's like something pull me backward. Maybe, it means that I have to learn more in the place.
Yes, Fumiko. If you are having a hard time moving forward, it is usually because there is something in the space where you are standing that you still have not yet learned/internalized and you need that information before moving forward. I wish you the best of luck! Keep me posted on your journey. Always, donnalynn
