and shit is relative to each of us.
As I go through my journey of being/becoming a coach,
I’m starting to see how so many of us hold on to that shit and have pain deep inside.
We may or may not know it’s there - we know something isn’t “right" in our life -
or we believe something isn’t “right” with us.
We repeat the same pattern and can’t see a way to break free.
We sabotage ourselves in various ways, damage our relationships
and take it out on those who love us the most.
Blind to the beauty of who we are.
As I experience more people’s life stories, I realise how we as human beings are all so alike.
We have all been dealt different hands,
and life is what we do with the cards we got to play with.
Seeing someone’s “pain”, and at times knowing what that pain feels like to have myself
can be difficult as a trainee coach
and in the future, even after years of coaching
I believe it still will. And I hope it will,
because when it doesn’t,
for me means I am no longer human.
The aim is to not let it affect me so that it affects me and my life.
It does affect me though, it affects me in a positive way.
A way that inspires me to continue on this path, to share my story and human-ness with others - including coachees, so that we all heal and become who we were born to be.
In gratitude to those I coach.
