“Sit with the pain until it passes, and you will be calmer for the next one” ~ Naval Ravikant
The world is full of very wounded people.
Some wounded people choose to work on their pain to heal it, but many more people choose not to.
When you have a low tolerance for distress, it makes it harder to sit with emotional pain, which needs to be done to be able to heal it.
Instead, many choose a path of avoiding emotional pain through drink, drugs, sex, overeating, numbing ourselves with our phones and Netflix, gambling, or by hurting others.
This is a pretty ineffective strategy for overcoming past hurts, and leads to a snowball effect of accumulating more and more pain as well as guilt and shame.
It’s a vicious cycle that never ends in a positive way.
To live a happy life you have to make a different choice. A choice to face your inner demons and heal your past.
It’s not an easy journey, but it’s so worth it.
What’s the alternative? If you don’t choose this now, what does the next 5, 10, 20 or 40 years look like to you?
Hurt people hurt other people; which also means your circle of support dwindles over time.

Soon I’ll be releasing my online coaching program, From Surviving To Thriving, as a live round where members will go through the online modules (videos and worksheets) with support and live videos via a private Facebook group.
In this course you’ll learn how to heal your past baggage and become a better version of yourself.
I’ll be going through the course myself at the same time – there are always more things that crop up in life and the beauty of this work is that it can be repeated when needed!
Let me know if you’re keen to know more or to go on the wait list for this.
If not now, then when?
