5 Ways To Pull Yourself Out Of Failure To Launch


failure to launch

Failure to Launch syndrome can be extremely frustrating to the one suffering from the disorder and it can be just as frustrating for the surrounding loved ones. Being “stuck” in life can cause a wide range of problems and negative emotions that may seem impossible to overcome.
Well, I am here to tell you, from experience, that failure to launch syndrome can be maintained, regulated and corrected through dedication, hard work and a willingness to be helped. Now, I want to take a few minutes and show you how I was able to reach out and help my son who was suffering from failure to launch. My adult son had spent seven years isolated in the Rocky Mountains. He spoke to no family members, didn’t work and the only way we knew he was alive would be when his power would be cut or he would be completely out of food and he would call for help. And obviously I would help. This cycle went on for seven years until my wife and I decided we could not keep enabling our son. This was a decision that kicked off a chain reaction that seemed to “bring our son back from the dead”. So here are the top five ways to pull yourself out of Failure to Launch.
1) Make that call to a loved one for help. No matter how bad things seem. No matter how far out of control your life feels, you MUST ask for help. I know it is uncomfortable to ask a loved one for help but pulling yourself out of Failure to Launch is NOT something you need to try to do on your own. Pick up that phone and make that call and I promise you that it will be the best decision that you have ever made.
2) Start interacting with family and friends on a regular basis. After spending so much time isolated by yourself it will be extremely healthy to begin socially interacting with family and friends. Feeling loved from our family and friends is extremely important to our psychological well being. I don’t care what anyone tells you, being alone isn’t any fun and it’s not healthy for anyone suffering from Failure to Launch to be isolating themselves.
3) Get a job, any job, and start contributing. Most of us stuck in the grip of Failure to Launch haven’t worked in a long time. We have let others pay our way through life for years so the sooner we can get a job and start paying our own way through life or contribute to our household the sooner we will start feeling better about ourselves. Being financially stable is one of the quickest ways to gain self- confidence AND gain the confidence of our loved ones. Becoming financially stable is one of the most important things you can do when getting help for your Failure to Launch syndrome.
4) Make amends to your loved ones and tell them that you love them. During our darkest times in our battle against Failure to Launch most of us were completely isolated and I am sure there were times where our family did not know if we were alive or dead. And during that same time period, I’m sure our family members were paying our bills and putting food on our table. So saying “I’m Sorry” would go a LONG WAY.  Hearing that from you will make all the difference in the world.
5) Believe in yourself. If you have done numbers 1 through 4, then you are well on your way to pulling yourself out of Failure to Launch. Great job my friend! Now you need to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and continue the journey and leave Failure to Launch syndrome far behind in the dust!
