I know you're tired. Feeling as if the ground you previously stood so firm on, has suddenly started to crumble. Distraught by painful things that continue to unfold in your social media feed or in your head. Struggling to stay hopeful, when life around you, both close and further away, seems to spin more and more out of your control. Trying to find your way back to yourself, above and beyond the stress, the fears and the noise.
I also know that you're strong, smart and independent.
That you fear that, by asking for help, your burden will increase. That, at least, fighting and struggling on your own is something you know. That you feel reaching out for help would be self-indulgent or a defeat, when you've come so far on your own, and there are so many more urgent appeals.
While I can never truly know how you feel - I do relate to your inner turmoil. That doesn't mean that my experiences make me an expert on life or give me the right to tell you what to do. I deeply trust the windy path that all our lives tend to take, incl. the highs, lows and messy middles. I also believe that an inner wisdom guides you onward, quietly in the background, patiently working for and through you.
And yet, here you are.
Struggling to tune out voices that lead you to compare, lash out, shut out, worry and judge - whether at (parts of) yourself or others. Feeling alone, self-critical and increasingly uncertain about what's right and what to do.
I'm not here to sell you a quick fix, 5 steps to follow or to 'heal' you. I don't believe life works like that (except in those moments where it does 😉 ). But I do believe that you are whole, resourceful, loved and creative - even in moments of pain, disillusionment, isolation, depression and anxiety. I believe that there's a deeper wisdom unfolding - even when the things you want seem more out of reach than ever before, even when you've become weary of disappointment after disappointment, even when you've lost all hope of things working out.
Life tends to unfold organically and cyclically. It might just not happen in the way you thought it would...
Even if this moment seems tough, exhausting or hopeless - know that you're not alone.
Your guidance and reprieve lies within - but I know it can be hard to connect with it when other fears and painful thoughts speak louder. The messages and habits you've (had to) adopt(ed) over the years about how to be OK are usually more well-worn and familiar - even if they've outgrown their use for you. This time of transition you're in (when things fall apart, when you're at a crossroads, when your old way of being and doing things is no longer a feasible option yet a new way hasn't emerged yet, when you're feeling lost, insecure or alone) is an invitation to heal, reflect, connect and transform.
Our sessions or Sisterhood gatherings will offer you a space to check-in, share, breathe, connect and express what's really going on, without being judged. The purpose of our work together won't be for me to 'fix' you or tell you what to do - but for you to experience space, peace and acceptance. Think of me as a compassionate ally along your way. No matter how bad it is, no matter what's going on, no matter how broken or unbalanced you feel - I'm here for you. Our time together and life unfolding around you will be the ingredients of your ongoing journey of self-discovery.
