Something I Love Is Hurting Me

Have you ever noticed that breaking up is hard to do? No matter what it is; leaving a relationship, a job, a friend, or even giving up certain foods, it takes some effort.

For example:

I love fresh Italian bread, still a little warm, with butter melting into it. It was my go-to treat for most of my adult life. Then one day I decided to try eating healthier. I experimented with how I felt after removing certain foods from my diet. Low and behold, when I stopped the gluten, the chronic lower back aches I lived with for decades disappeared. I discovered:

Something I loved was hurting me.

How about that time I was in a corporation that was grinding me down? Now, understand, I love working. I enjoy creativity, the sense of accomplishment, the power behind teamwork. It is intoxicating. So, when I found myself working for a boss who micro-managed me, who used me as a scape-goat for the failure of others, and who did not support my work or the work of my peers, I did not leave. I loved the people, I loved the work, I loved the creativity, so many reasons to stay even though this place was killing my soul. Each day I felt less confident and less able to deliver results, until it was time for me to leave, broken and looking for answers. I discovered:

And then there are the relationship that unraveled. I love creativity, I love music, I love the excitement of the crowd at a concert. So, when I dated a drummer who played paradiddles on my back while hugging me, I melted and fell in love. This creative jazz musician with his melodious life was exhilarating. This blinded me from the anger he buried and the lashing out he would exhibit against the neighbors, the dog, or the children. It broke my heart bit by bit every day until I was numb to the pain. I discovered:

I’ve come a long way since those days. I’ve done, and continue to do, self-assessment and personal development. I investigate my motivation and get real with my boundaries. I challenge myself and expect to show up integrous each moment of every day. I’ve studied multiple techniques for mindful work including Meditation, Neurolinguistics, Quantum Linguistics, and so very much more in order to both improve how I show up and provide the tools to help my clients find their purpose, their peace, and their healing.

What is that something you love that is hurting you now? What level of personal growth are you engaged in that is helping you? How committed are you to being the very best version of yourself and begin the healing process?

Isn’t it time to get unstuck and move into a life you intentionally create?

What would it take for you to set yourself free, to believe in yourself, to know your choices matter?

It takes allowing yourself to feel worthy of self-care and self-development. It takes having someone at your side guiding you through the barriers that could hold you back. It takes someone who has done it and is willing to go through it with you.

Let’s talk and see if I am that someone for you. Schedule our discovery meeting today.
