Dear Cherished Devotees, followers, friends, raving fans and spiritual torchbearers of our coaching endeavours:
I have been thinking of people lately and I really want to paint a person for you. A person that some of you may know. Here goes..
There is a person that goes to the same job, does the same thing and occupies themselves with the same people every day, and repeats the same story to you day in and day out. That person that never asks for help, that always seems to feel dissatisfied with activities in their life…down, sad, stuck, irritable and just not all that interested in doing much of anything. They respond in neutral tones when posed an option to try new things. They are highly opinionated and scrutinize every single thing everyone else does or says, but never make comments about themselves. Everything carries no flavour or meaning and nothing is enjoyable anymore. What really sounds good to them is to just proceed to do whatever they want, when in reality, they know deep down, they really don’t know what else better to do nor what they want…and rather cunningly, avoid or procrastinate changing anything about their situation. They are lonely, and have no deep emotional connections with anyone around them. They tend to push people away and sabotage positive relations with everyone. They confess in solitude and perhaps with some people, jokingly, that they are depressed or unhappy in some way, but fuck it. Whatever..that’s just how life is…something is missing in the days gone by, but whatever…there is no where to even start anyway and everyone else is doing the same thing, too. It is normal to feel dissatisfied. No one cares about me anyway. I try and no one seems to care.
What do you believe about this person? What hopes might there be for a person such as the one I painted above? How many of you believe this person needs to seek professional help? Maybe some of you feel medication could be of function to them. Some of you maybe have walked away from a person such as one that matches the likes above. Perhaps, there are people that somewhat match this and are very closeted in their pain and just have no one to talk to. How many of you sense that the person described above may struggle so heavily because they have no one to trust or confide in. What then? What is the point of me painting such a person as this?
I am going to be 100% honest with you: I just described me. For the longest time, I was the social butterfly, I created friends from any personality type and was able to ‘adult.’ I had steady income, I took some odd-end jobs to flesh out my resume, I visited the dentist once a year and I got along with friends and family, hosted parties, took language courses, had a Bachelor’s degree..In spite of what my friends and family saw, since then, I have struggled with all of the aforementioned…alone. I am currently 29 years old and this person I painted for you, was me, dating all the way back to 2013..when I turned 23 years old. I used to believe there was something wrong with me. I thought, maybe I should just do everything by myself. But life became more and more unbearable until finally, I decided enough was enough. What is something, an action, I couldn’t go a day without doing…I thought and I thought and I thought…like Winnie-the-Pooh does when he gets stuck. I realized, I felt the best when I served others in some way. If I wasn’t doing something to impact someone’s sense of well-being in a positive way, then I may as well stay asleep. So, I decided to give myself structure and here I am today, pursuing what I want to do, which is to provide a platform and foundation to people that suffer just as I did before. Painfully alone and just without a clue of where to start restructuring their life. I have a formula that no one has and it all starts with just one conversation with me. After just ONE conversation with me, your life, will change and everything will make sense. I have the formula for Clarity. I only talk with the most raw and open-minded, people. People willing to risk it all and challenge everything their life stands for…all to create sustainable change in their well-being and quality of life. This is not for the faint-hearted. But I guarantee that the person that does feel ready to step up to the task, and is 100% open and committed to changing their life, will never look at themselves the same again.
Loyally by your side,
