We react to confinement in different ways depending upon what is confining us and how we are confined. Sometimes we may feel good while confined within the embrace of a loved one’s warmth, shelter, and love. On the other hand we are sometimes confined by the constraints of necessity so that we are confined to working certain hours within internal working constraints. We may have run afoul of rules and regulations and are suffering some of the consequences of our actions. We may be confined by physical circumstances that don’t allow us the freedom of movement that we expect and desire. To some confinement means struggle and anger and fighting against whatever perceived bonds are holding us. This may get us out of the strictures of a desperate living environment or the propel us from ignorance to knowledge but it can also lead to more frustration and more struggle if we don’t take a look at our particular circumstances rationally, then decide our course of action. To others confinement means guidance along a chosen path and the ability to be shaped to more successfully move along that path and achieve goals. The definition, therefore, depends upon how confinement is looked upon. Wouldn’t you rather see confinement as an opportunity than as an obstacle?
