There is a life that matters…..It’s YOURS
Everyone has a family and a story of their life. Whether that family was you and your grandmother, you and your mother raising you as a single mother, or you being raised in a foster home, or with 2 parents, your life was affected by those experiences growing up. There’s no blame here. The experiences you experienced were uniquely yours and although others may share them or some of them, you know what kind of joy, pain, heartache, stress, distress, drama, headache, they caused you. And just like matter isn’t created or destroyed, the experiences
When I think of an analogy that may be good in terms of helping paint the picture of long term growth vs. the need for gratification this comes to mind. As investing in and seeing the need for support/therapy can often seem like the choice between getting the more immediate result vs. moving through the time it takes to actually heal and transform ones life. For example: Eating ice cream (or whatever satisfies in the short term to make you or your emotions calm or feel better for a while), may feel good in the moment, yet over time, the short fixes leave us no further than where we started in the first lace while pounds of emotional stress and distress and trauma pile up on us. Eating the ice cream or engaging in the thing that brings us immediate gratification makes you feel good now, but the gym or therapy support can transform your body or life. The immediate gratification can often outweigh the long term rewards in the moment, yet gets you nowhere, or at least anywhere that has the chance to take your life further
We don’t often admit it to ourselves, but we know it does. We know the long term investment in taking good care of ourselves physically and emotionally has great potential to change where we are emotionally and in our lives, yet its hard at times to feel as though we can invest in testing this out. I can tell you from experience and by being a professional in this field that investing in your emotional life has great benefit that you may not be able to see until you experience it for yourself.
Investing in yourself or your relationship produces more long term results and can often show you the way you have been looking for to actually make some progress and not be held back. For what we don’t know can hurt us, our potential for progress, and our ability to reach our dreams and have a satisfying relationship where we get our emotional needs met without all the drama and games that can often be a part of relationships when there has been difficulty having access to an experience and insight that can change your life and the trajectory of your future. You don’t have to settle or think life has passed you by or has it out for you. Even if life does have it out for you, you can learn to win and thrive where you haven’t been able to gain much victory.
I can help you discover the parts of yourself that have been been dormant and help you awaken to your greatness. Give me a call today and let’s begin today.
