I've told myself many lies over the years:
"It doesn't matter"
"It doesn't hurt"
But you know what? I was not ok, it did matter, and I did hurt. Over the years those lies became so easy to believe and they hurt me more than I ever imagined...
When was the last time you really needed to talk and reached out to someone who:
A. Gave you unsolicited advice
B. Said something that only made you feel ashamed, alone and misunderstood
C. Made you regret even reaching out
D. Made your phone call about themselves, comparing and telling you that they have it worse than you
E. All of the above!
How often does this happen and we begin to feel like we are alone and need to deal with it by ourselves?
Many times this scenario has played out in my life, which left me feeling alone, hurt and misunderstood....but throughout it all, there was a small part of me that knew there was a better way!
Through the obstacles and challenges in life, I "found" life coaching. As a huge advocate of therapy, I found coaching to be more helpful with where I was at in that point of my life. I found clarity, deep healing, new awarenesses and tools along with supportive people who weren't telling me what to do, but coming alongside me in my journey. I realized that I no longer needed to carry all the hurts and baggage--that life can be different and better without them.
The truth is, we cannot navigate life alone. No matter how strong we think we think we are, our burdens can be too much to carry.
I've spent the last decade creating a safe space for people to share the good, the bad and the ugly.
As a coach I'm not going to tell you what to do, but help you unburden yourself and guide you to get clear on what your next steps will be!
