I use to try and find myself in self-help books. Maybe you can relate? I also tried to find myself by mastering new skills and abilities. Always trying to be better. If only I could ... then my life would be perfect! And I would be perfect, and all my problems would be gone. I didn't find myself in my quest for perfection. In fact, I lost myself. And I stayed lost until I reached out and asked for help.
By asking for help from other living human beings (instead of books, podcasts, Youtube) I was able development my own internal compass to help guide me. I found myself through connection with people. Now, I want to help others do the same. To be clear books and Youtube and podcasts can be helpful and I know I benefited from many of the books I read. Yet at the same time these resources can further isolate and that is why it's important to seek help from other humans as that its the only way not to feel isolated and disconnect.
Counselling can help you figure out who you are, where you are and what might be keeping you stuck in patterns and situations that aren't serving you. If you have been struggling to figure out who you are and what you want in life then I want to encourage you to reach out and ask for help. Asking for help isn't easy. Or at least it wasn't easy for me. If you are struggling to feel connected, empowered and passionate about your life then maybe counselling could help. I know it did for me.
About LeaderWithin Self Development
A few years ago I realized my life was not what I had imaged or hoped it would be. I was tired all the time. I was socially isolated. I was sick. I feared new social situations. My career was going nowhere fast. And I knew there was more to life, but I had no idea what I needed to turn my life around or even what was wrong. I was stuck in a pattern of wanting everything around me to change. I knew that if only my boss got help with his issues and my mom got help with her problems, and my friend got help, and the person I volunteered with got help, and all these people dealt with their issues my life would be fantastic! What I was slow to realize at the time was that I can't control other people and waiting for them to get help left me in a helpless state.
With help and guidance, I started to realize the only person I had any control over was me and if I wanted something different in my life I needed to make different choices. Fast forward three years and many tears and many hours of internal reflection I now have a very different life. I no longer try to control others around me. Instead, I focus on myself and what's going on inside me. I now have strong and healthy relationships with many people. I no longer need others to change for me to be happy. I no longer fear new social situations, and best of all I am no longer tired all the time. And I am embarking on a new career as a counsellor. I want to help others to understand the factors in their life which are getting in the way of living the life they want.
