We need vision to make it through life. And this is true whether we are engaging in various hobbies, seeking to build our career, or to create a marriage that’s satisfying and lasts for a lifetime.

Feeling stuck in our relationships is often due to a lost of vision

And often when we feel stuck or stagnant in our relationships, it’s because we’ve lost this vision. And this is where vision and hope are also closely linked together. That if I don’t have a vision of what is possible, then I also don’t have the hope of that possibility. And so, now without vision, I feel hopeless and in the dark.

And sometimes in these situations, what is needed is to scrap the old and start completely over, to build from the ground up something altogether new.

But many other times, what is needed is simply to expand our vision, to bring a sense of creativity and resourceful into our situation. That maybe what we need is not something altogether new, but again, an expanded vision on how we approach what already is.

Christian counseling and soul care can help you overcome your blind spots

And this is where counselors or our trusted others can help…oftentimes we’re too close to a situation that we have our blind spots. And so, by definition, with our blind spots, we don’t have vision, we can’t see our way forward. But someone the outside of our situation can come in and help us expand our vision, to help us see more creatively how to approach our given situation…so that we can take our vision to another level and get unstuck to find our way forward.

Expand your vision and find your way forward

And so the first answer when we’re feeling stuck or stagnant in our life and relationships is not to give up and completely throw the baby out with the bathwater. Our first response is, ideally is to help expand our vision to see another way of viewing our situation to find our way forward.
