Choosing Choiceless?

I wonder how often these types of thoughts pass through minds:

I really hate this job. Does it really matter? What good am I doing in the world?


I can’t change jobs. I’d have to go back to school. Who would hire me? I don’t know what I want to do.


She never respects my decisions. She doesn’t really care about me. But I’m stuck.


I have no idea what I want to do. How am I supposed to pick a major? I can’t even decide what I want to eat for dinner.

Thoughts of hopelessness. The feeling that you are trapped. The belief that you have no choices. While those exact words may not go through you head, do you have repeated patterns of thought that reflect the belief that you are imprisoned in your life?
