My mother has kept me trapped in the house during my growing up years. Though now that I am out of the house and away from her abuse, I still feel trapped all over again due to circumstances that force me to stay at home or my workplace for eight to twelve hours at a time. Instead of enjoying my life, I fall back into depression, paralysis, and listlessness. It is ruining my life despite getting a job that requires travel. What can I do? Is there a way to turn this misery off and remind me that I am still free even when I am tied up at one location?

Thank you for your query. I am sorry to hear about what you have gone through during your early life. Indeed it is a challenge to deal with daily life and try to act like everything is normal, especially with such hardship and limited exposure in life. The good thing is that you realize this freedom and look forward to stepping into a productive life and living it to the fullest. Unfortunately, what hinders in between are your frightening experiences and trauma. It is not easy to come out of it suddenly, but gradual practice and adequate counseling can help. I suggest you follow the below tips:
I hope this helps.
Kindly revert in case of further questions.
