At times it seems we don't know when to stop talking. It's like we get too comfortable with someone and we tell them everything that goes on in our lives. We aren't careful about what we say or what affects it may have on that person. Yes, communication is key. Yes, it's amazing to have somebody to talk to, but some things we say are better left unsaid... Sometimes we're better off being ignorant and not knowing... Sometimes, we just can't handle the truth.
After my ex broke up with me, I knew I needed to get out of the job I was doing. I knew I needed something more.. I needed to go places, earn more and do more.
I threw myself into really going for great job opportunities at major international corporations.. I aced all the interviews and almost immediately landed myself a dream job at a Fortune 500 company.
Then my ex came back again. And I accepted him back, thinking it would be different this time.. thinking that maybe if we solved everything, we'd really make it this time. And that's when it went downhill.
I lost my amazing new job that wasn't so amazing after all, my ex broke my heart for the 4th time, and I found myself sitting on my bed and wondering how could I have failed so bloody badly... AGAIN.
But this time.. I was determined to push through. I was determined not to give up. I think I had a huge middle finger pictured in my head when I went about really taking life by the balls and really making my own rules. I will no longer live life by someone else's terms any longer.
And so I became an entrepreneur and started my own coaching practice. My clientele increased and started to include doctors, actresses, lawyers and teachers. And to my surprise they all liked my silly cartoons and sense of humor!
I guess that in the darkest of times the best thing you can do is make light of a very painful thing.
Now I'm not saying that everyone should go quit their jobs because of a breakup. Oh no no. What I am saying is that I have been there. I have been there where everything was going so well for me, only to lose it all in a second.
And if you're ever going to work with a coach, work with one who understands the corporate lifestyle and how the world still turns even when you're going through something so utterly devastating.
And so, if you're where I was before, if you don't have time to fall apart.. hop on over to my profile @stepstohappyness and start my free healing course.
Now.. what's YOUR story?
