Finding Your Way Through Challenging Relationships …

I feel very fortunate this year to be very busy with clients, family and friends who are absolutely amazing, each in their own way. We so often get caught up in our day-to-day that we do not truly recognize who in our lives we are grateful for and from whom we can learn and grow. In my career, I have the opportunity to experience the realness, the core of people. Each and every person has something special to offer, hopes and dreams to fulfill, and fears and hurdles to overcome. The beauty of that realness is so inspirational.

It has not always been that way. We can all get caught up in what is not going well, blame a situation or person from holding us back, or focus on the negative. There is so much more available to us when we flip that on its side and focus on what is going well, what we are grateful for, and what we can control and influence to make the changes necessary for us to thrive. Often, following through on this takes awareness, resources, and support.

If we look specifically at relationships in this context, each of us could easily think of somebody that we are not 100% pleased with or who, to a certain extent, are uncomfortable with, or even who we fear. To take this a step further, if we are brave enough to look at relationships that feel negative or where we somehow feel we have lost ourselves, we can find meaning and learning from them. What can we learn about ourselves through these relationships? How are we dis-empowering ourselves through fear or possibly giving our power away? Most importantly, how can we develop our courage and strength to make changes to reclaim who we are?

Are you struggling in a current relationship (personally or professionally)? Or transitioning out of a difficult relationship?

Maybe you have felt that you are losing yourself, cannot be yourself, need to buffer yourself, like you are not enough or that you cannot seem to satisfy the other person — be they a partner, parent, child, friend, colleague, boss, employer. Are you ready to reclaim your power?

This is the focus of our upcoming workshop, ‘Offering an Authentic Lifeline to Wholeness … finding your way through challenging relationships and moving towards life changing wholeness’ based on the transformative work of Brené Brown.
