EXAMPLE OF THE IMPACT THAT LIFE COACHING CAN HAVE IN A LIFE
Just a few short years ago, I did not like my life and I did not like myself. I found parenting incredibly challenging, stressful, and unrewarding. I was exhausted, and full of resentment and self-loathing. Most important relationships felt like a withering house plant--neglected, needing nourishment and sunshine, and I felt inadequate and ill-equipped to do anything about it.
Life coaching changed the way I view and approach my relationships. I learned why I was so tired and resentful, and what to do about it. I learned a better way to love and care for myself and others. My faith and understanding of Christ, The Plan of Happiness, and the gift of agency grew exponentially.
Returning to the house plant analogy, I had figured out how to get the care and nourishment I needed to truly thrive. As I learned and applied truth, you might say I breathed out cleaner oxygen to the benefit of those I love.
I love my relationships now! They aren't perfect, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. I love and trust my ability to navigate relationship challenges now. Not perfectly, but honestly, perfection is over-rated. I would rather embrace the full, fantastic, and flawed reality of me and my life.
