Life is not a Disney movie, we can’t wish upon a star and sit around hoping everything will sort itself out – that’s not how it works.
Truth is, if you’re waiting for someone to save you, give you a break or cut you some slack – it’s most probably never going to happen.
So the realisation you need to come to is simple: "no body is coming to rescue you!"
Start from there.
I know that sounds rather pessimistic, but I prefer to call it a healthy dose of reality.
