It is not about trying harder.
Do you feel some relief when you read that statement?
If you do, my guess is that you are trying really hard and not getting what you want, crave,
long for – more peace, more love, more security, more fun, more joy, more….
It doesn’t have to be like this.
You may feel sometimes that if you just do what you should and get it right, then you will be happy. If you work harder or longer, you will feel that you matter or someone else will finally get it right for you.
That is such a painful way to live – to be trying so hard.
You may think “if I were just successful enough, thin enough, smart enough, wealthy enough, brave enough, attractive enough, talented enough, or loved enough, then I would be OK and I would be happy.”
You are not alone in feeling this way.
But what we want frequently does not come in the way that we are told it does or that we think it does.
There is another way.
If you want to create something different, counseling can help.
This is big work. I can’t promise that your journey will feel “quick and easy” (although some stuff can change in a flash) but I can promise that it will be worth it.
The truth is that you do not have to do it all in order to be happy.
Whether it is in your personal relationships or your career, you can get more of what you truly want, crave and long for at any point in your life – it is never too late!
I offer hope and help when you are tired of trying harder and want more from your life. I have the support, skills and tools that enable you to know that you are enough. You can live in a way that feels wonderful to you.
All that is required is that you be willing to consider that there is another way to be.
