I was talking to a friend of mine today and we talking about someone we both knew.  They seemed to be having a hard time and just "can't see the forest from the trees".  
 
I said, "Yeah, sometimes people know what the trees are all about, they just don't want to cut them down."
 
The trees are comfortable - they shield you from what's outside, they kept you warm and you know exactly which way to turn in this forest that has grown around you.  Who really wants to clear a new path?
 
The forest does protect you in one sense but it also shields people from being able to see or even find you!  You can hide there and in this life, you'll might never get found if you stay there.
 
Find a way to make a path for yourself and move your way out.  You deserve to have the sunshine on your face.
