You referred to getting away from a toxic situation. If you are an
Intuitive and feel committed (stuck) in some closed circumstance,
you might have "shut down." Planning an exit strategy does not mean
being avoidant/irresponsible (necessarily.) Try describing "now" as a
starting point. What pecisely is it that you want to move from; what
is seemingly holding you back? If you are "trapped," all the exercise
and therapy in the world will only help get you to tolerate "life" or
bring you to a flash point. Different therapy (music, dance, art) might
provide breaakthrough insight. Figure out the "sticking point."
Develop a change strategy, including how to redefine the present.
Then, just do it; change it or endure it!
