Stress and Loneliness was my baseline ever since I can remember. I was about 9 when I realized there was some incongruities between how others perceived me and how I perceived myself to be. The chasm between those had grown over time and I didn’t realize that my truest self, my emotional pain was at the complete other side of the chasm. I had subconsciously torn myself in half because I thought that my feelings and pain were taboo and not reasonable, useless and unmerited. Now….being 30 years young, I am taking steps boldly into sharing my story and expressing my righteous anger for all the times I was told I was too sad, depressing to be around, ungrateful, unappreciative, emotionless, completely discounted and not even asked truly, deeply what was triggering me to give off this persona that others seemed to take for granted. All of these experiences, I understand now, had added to my pain and therefore made it all the more heartbreaking to view the widening chasm between my truest self and my raw energy to express that — my pain. I still struggle to release my pain and fully express it because I am reminded of the chasm everytime I feel shut down by another’s words, passive aggressiveness and thoughtless actions. Perhaps, I sound like a victim. Well, it is how I feel when I get triggered and I own it and stop, breathe and think where to go within myself.

I want this to be a safe space to share my goings-on while I dig deep into my journey of self-discovery. What brings me to my desire to share my journey? I wish to provide life-coaching services to others. I coach to help others uncover what it is that is holding them back from accomplishing what is dearest in their hearts, spirit and minds. I am currently a student at iPEC, Institute of Professional Excellence in coaching. I am determined to disseminate my coaching services to all those interested. While I coach, I also would like to share bits and pieces of what it is that I do as a life coach-to-be and inversely, what I do not do. I am an imagineer, at your service. That is the best way I can describe a life coach to you. As a life coach-to-be, I can teach you how to think outside the box, consider alternative perspectives and reflect on what influences your thoughts. If any of this sounds like something you are experiencing, what is stopping you from moving forward? A space to message me may be found on the middle menu option on my home page. I acknowledge, appreciate and embody gratitude for each and every one of you and the struggles which you endeavour each and every moment. No one is a stranger to adversity. We can all overcome adversity because of our combined diversity. Thank you for contributing your time into our growing and collective, worldly diversity. Endearingly yours, Kim
