My Why – Vlog and Vulnerable Post

The written Post from Jan 31, 2019

For the past 2 years, I have been blessed to support individuals to Live Strong & Authentic Lives through my private Life Coaching Practice. I am also honoured to have spent over 20 years training volunteers and working frontline on distress lines and victim services.
Things have not always been as good as they are today. As a youth, I never felt like I fit. As an empath living in a family that I interpreted as being “emotionally constipated”, I sought the affection, attention and recognition that I could not feel at home. I had been cheated on by mates and was looking for guarantees. Then I found a young man who showed all signs of loyalty and his family and religious congregation welcomed me with open arms and loads of attention. I thought I had found the answer and all I had to do was reject my old life and embrace this new faith and lifestyle.
As you can probably guess this bright and shiny jewel turned out to be polished glass. Over time I realized how much of myself I had lost and the suppression became suffocating. No matter how hard I tried to be what they wanted me to be, it was never enough. I was even blamed for others indiscretions! My marriage was deteriorating in front of my eyes and without an education and my child depending on me, I had to do something!
I remember that day vividly. I was in the kitchen and had a glass visions pot in my hand full of spaghetti sauce. I was in a heated discussion with my husband. I quickly turned and crashed the pot on the counter as I screamed “ENOUGH”. It was not only enough to the marriage but also to the life I had been living. It meant everything would change. That day I lost my community, my surrogate mother (my mother-in-law) and my faith. Just like the visions pot, I had to pick up the pieces, clean up the mess and start again.
It took a while, but everything turned around for me after that pivotal point. With the help and support of mentors and coaches, I finished my honours degree in Psychology with two unofficial minors in Women’s Studies and Theology. I completed my solution-focused coach training and certification through the International Coaching Federation and started my private practice. Through my own self-development, I was finally able to see and accept the love and attention from my family!
So why am I passionate about the work I do. I know how immobilizing it is to live a life that is not my own and then to be shunned for choosing a life that is mine. Everyone has a unique gift to give to this world and it not possible to share that when we are stuck in fear, guilt and shame. I know YOU have something to offer once you have healed the pain and uncovered your life purpose. Many people that seek my services have felt the intense pain of shunning from their family, friends and community. In response to this, I have created a Free 30 minute Reclaim Your Power Strategy Session that I will be offering to 20 people in over the next 90 days. During this confidential time together, I will help you get crystal clear about where you are now in your recovery journey, where you want to be and that vision you want for yourself in the future. I will give you some powerful information to get you closer to the life of joy and connection you want.
So … Will you hold this vision for 20 individuals sharing in this gift?
If you know of anyone who is struggling with the effects of shunning or in building a new life, will you share this post with them? I would love to offer them this gift of Reclaim Your Power Strategy Session.

Just Loneliness

Everyone has had the experience of feeling alone and isolated at some point in their lives.

Whether you are living by yourself for the first time or even feeling isolated in a crowd of people, the feeling of loneliness can be present.

For over 20 years I have been the empathetic voice on the other end of a distress line; loneliness and isolation have been the reason behind most of the calls.

I have also been that lonely person who has not reached out because I was afraid of being judged for being “just lonely.”

Very few people reach out for support when they are lonely even if that is the root concern for them, because it has not been taken seriously.

Loneliness is real. Loneliness is damaging. And we can do something about it. A recent major research study on loneliness in Britain led to the appointment of a Minister of Loneliness, based on the known serious health impacts of loneliness.

It got me thinking and prompted me to look deeper. The study showed that persistent isolation has a higher impact on both physical and mental health than obesity or excessive drinking.

The effects run across the generations from children to the elderly. Isolation should be taken seriously. How often do we eat alone in front of the TV, with computers or other devices? How many opportunities could we take to reduce our own social isolation and that of others?

What can we do? I do most of my work from home and over the internet. It is easy to be days or weeks before I get together with others in person, which is a different interaction for me than the one I have electronically.

Connecting with others in person, sharing time, food and ideas with people who share similar values, culture, and passions is so important.

As an introvert, I am very aware about how I choose to connect with others so that I don’t feel like an island in a river of people, keeping in mind the gap between the expectation of what I am looking for in interactions with others and what the reality of the experience actually is. Choosing to have connections with others and arranging to be with others who share things in common with me is something that is meaningful.

When I was a child living in rural Dufferin County, we would go to community dinners, quilting sessions and local fairs.

We would check in regularly with our neighbours who lived alone and invite them to join us when we went to town.

I plan to bring many of these practices back into my life, as well as volunteer and to get involved with other local events. Perhaps I’ll invite a new neighbour over to have coffee with me.

What are some things you can do that will help alleviate loneliness for yourself and others?

Vulnerable Post

Over the last 20 years, I have helped thousands of people in crisis as a crisis responder.  Now as a Certified Life Coach and experienced facilitator, I support people in creating the lives they want, so they don’t find themselves in that same level of crisis.

I have been in the same shoes as more than half of my clients.  I was a Jehovah’s Witness for 10 years.  When I decided to leave my marriage, I also left the Watchtower Society.  This decision was not easy.  For months I agonized over the decision, can I leave all my supports behind, including a husband I still loved?  The emotional and psychological abuse became too much, and I remember breaking my favourite dish on the counter when I finally said, “I am DONE!”  That day I lost my husband, my home, my family & friends and my job. It took me many years to pick up the pieces and with the help of a few amazing mentors and coaches, I finished my Honours Psychology Degree and Life Coaching Certification education, built my coaching practice and supported my daughter to grow into a strong independent woman!

Why do I care so much? Because I know the value Ex Jehovah’s Witnesses have, to change the world once they have had the chance to heal the pain, build new purpose and find happiness and joy.  The WHOLE WORLD will benefit from the gifts that these amazing individuals have to offer.

But the problem is that there are SO many Ex Jehovah’s Witnesses who often suffer from anger, pain and betrayal that can immobilize them.  Many find themselves in isolation for many years like I did.

That’s why I feel vulnerable sharing about the goal I’ve set for the next 90 days. It’s a big goal My goal is to have 20 Ex Jehovah’s Witnesses register for a Free Rebuild Your Life Discovery Session!  During this confidential time together, I will help you get crystal clear about where you are now regarding your emotional pain and loss, where you want to be and that vision you want for yourself.  I will give you some powerful information to get you closer to the life with happiness and joy.

I want to help. That’s why I am offering the gift of Free Rebuild Your Life Discovery Session.

So… Will you hold this vision for 20 Ex Jehovah’s Witnesses sharing in these gifts?

And, if you know any Ex Jehovah’s Witnesses struggling to build the life they want, will you share this post with them?

I would LOVE to offer them the gift of a Free Rebuild Your Life Discovery Session.
