Many times when we feel unfulfilled, it’s because we’re living someone else’s life.–without even knowing it, we’re living our life based on other people’s rules, standards, habits, or beliefs. We haven’t made those choices for ourselves, so, even when we seem successful to others, we feel empty and unfulfilled. This emptiness can lead us to make choices that end up being self-destructive (alcohol, relationships, workaholism, etc).
When we realize this issue, the voice of our pesky inner critic can creep in with phrases such as, “I should be able to work on this myself. It shouldn’t be so hard. Do I really need someone to help me?” The self-doubt, dismissive tone, and minimizing thought process actually turns up the volume on your feelings of unworthiness and not being good enough.
My approach using the Daring Way can equip you with the tools to identify the triggers to this not good enough-ness, and stop them in their tracks. The goal is to redirect your heart toward empathy, connection, and grace.
The truth is, we all need emotional maintenance, just as we get maintenance on our cars, our lawns, our electronic devices, our bodies at the doctor, etc. Why do we minimize and criticize the need for attention to these emotional matters that affect so much in our lives?
We feel we don’t have the permission, we don’t deserve it. Maybe we don’t need to spend the time and money on ourselves. When we ignore our emotional red flags, the signs and symptoms that we need maintenance only get stronger, louder, and more evident.
My office is a safe and non-judgmental space for you to access your courage and begin living with more self-compassion, understanding, connection with yourself and others, peace, and authenticity.
It’s time to stop shame from hijacking your life and your dreams, your creativity, your sense of worth and intrinsic value.
