Sometimes I feel a little insecure when I tell people I’m studying to become a life coach. Thoughts like, “Who am I to think I can help people?” “They can see I’m a mess, they’d never come to me for help.”
Then I think of where I was. For a few years, I struggled to even be nice to my husband and kids. Sometimes it was a struggle to even get out of bed in the morning. I felt like I had black tar on my heart that I couldn’t get to go away. I still feel some of those emotions, but it’s not very often, and I feel secure that I have tools to help me through those emotions. I’m not scared to feel them anymore because I know there is a way through them.
I am a mess sometimes. But I’m committed to being brave and going forward anyway. I’m committed to keep trying to improve, and help others who can benefit from what I’m learning. Be brave with me! The world needs you!
