This is a professional service offered by Grounds For Clarity LLC and people come to us when they want a sounding board and are feeling trapped in their life with no way out except to deeply consider this question — Is there any point to my life anymore?
“Embracing the fear of being seen for who we are begins with us letting go of all the old ways we see ourselves.”
Thought Founder of Grounds For Clarity
These aren’t just words. At what cost is it to you to continue doing things, living life, operating in your relationships ACROSS THE BOARD the way you have been for the past X amount of days, weeks, months…years? Is the amount of apathy and anger and isolation from anyone really worth it? Is it worth it to go home after a day of work of “getting shit done” to come home and have your best friend be distraction to accompany your misery for the sake of not coming off “weak?” When is the last time you felt anything other than numbness and self-loathing only to wake up and lather, rinse and repeat? You no longer are bright-eyed even about your craft anymore. Be honest. Is your career worth your well-being?
You DESERVE a quality life and it is NEVER too late.
When we don’t get approval or acceptance from ourselves or people, we work hard to get it externally from: the zeroes in our salary, the amount of money in our bank account, the quantity of toys we have to play with, our level of alcoholism or bowls we have access to smoke to numb all the pain away. Self-loathing hurts. Your feelings are so hurt in fact all the energy you have left is to numb yourself.
Uncertain what left there is to do?
Why do you feel stuck?
Resisting — avoiding, ignoring, suppressing and downplaying feelings of apathy and anger — is only going to result in burnout, self-loathing and suffering. What else left is there? At least you have worked for what you have, right?
Because we all need acceptance and approval to feel like we belong, among people, the things we believe in, the wealth we accrue, the objects we collect, disintegrate in value to us and our quality of life boils down to isolation, disconnect with ourselves and an acceptance that this is just the way life is so may as well do whatever you want.
Even the greats — the role models in society: motivational speakers, inspirational figures, inventors, global economic giants — share what it is they accomplish because they get that no matter our individual progress, we are still one and are here on this planet together. Are you sharing what you have put your blood, sweat and tears into in the way you are proud of?
How can you reconnect with others, notwithstanding your career? Well, you cannot connect with others when you are burnt out. Of course, you are burnt out because you have just been existing for the past several decades of your life. As cliché as it sounds, it is true: You’ve got to focus on yourself inside–out.
What do you do now since you are stuck?
Recognition and an acceptance of what is no longer serving you that has been working well for you, up to this point.
What exactly does this mean? Raising your awareness? What is keeping you emotionally attracted to people, things, careers, roles and even relationships? Is this fragmenting what you wish for for your current identity? The way you’ve been operating has brought you to this place, to this post, right now. This is your opportunity to shift your paradigm and answer your questions.
