The journey of life is not always an easy one. (Duh, thanks Captain Obvious!)
As an empath one of my callings has been to be there to support those around me who are struggling.
I’ve accepted that it is in my nature to reach out to help, to take the late night calls, to provide the hugs, and sit down again and again to allow people to vent, cry, question … even when I’m facing struggles of my own. It’s just what I do.
I’ve had the privilege of walking alongside many of you as you’ve found your way out of challenging situations.
Some of you are still stuck, and I wanted to let you know I’m still here if you need me.
I’ve also had a rough journey including an abusive relationship, chronic illness and financial struggle.
So it is a combination of my life experience, professional training and experience and natural insight that has allowed me to provide guidance and support when required. I’m also a natural lateral thinker and problem solver so I can provide out of left field ideas and suggestions to potentially solve seemingly impossible circumstances.
But … sometimes I need to step back and allow people to make their own choices, despite whether or not I think that choice is right.
Life is complicated and often messy, and occasionally difficult decisions need to be made in the short term because they seem like the only option available.
But I’m not them, and I’m not living with the barrage of negative mind traffic that wears them down.
As challenging as it is to watch someone I care about struggle, I know It’s easier to be a third party observer than to be stuck in the middle of the quicksand that threatens to pull you in further with each move you make.
Those who know me well know that the space I help to create is of loving support and is completely judgement free.
For sure I’ll express my concerns and tell you how I feel, but whatever choice you make in your life I’ll be there to support you, to have your back and to throw you a rope and pull with all my might.
You’re in my life because you’re important to me and because I care about you. I’m on your side and captain of your cheer squad!
Just sayin’ 😘
