I just found a bag of chocolate covered pretzels with peppermint sprinkles in the back of my cupboard… and we’re all alone together…uh oh. Wish me luck with that.
Anyway, here’s how I’m feeling right now.
It takes a LOT to piss me off. I mean A LOT A LOT. But right now, I’m F-ing M-A-D.
For the most part, I don’t invest in other people’s drama (because I don’t see them invested in changing it).
But, this is different.
The reason I’m pissed is because I’m watching a former client, a woman whom I KNOW is a GREAT WHITE SHARK flopping and floundering around like a small fish out of water.
I’m pissed because I don’t know why this is happening.
She’s smart, passionate, capable, and complex as all get out. She was my FIRST client CRUSH.
To tell you the truth, I fell hopelessly in love with her the first time we spoke.
She’s the kind of woman who ALWAYS MAKES THINGS HAPPEN…and right now…she’s NOT.
I am PISSED off on HER BEHALF because this is UNACCEPTABLE and it HAS TO STOP.
It has to stop because she can’t go on like this, but also it has to stop because I can’t live in a world where a FIERCE OVERACHIEVER like her is faltering.
She’s smashing all my hopes for her to bits and I won’t stand for it.
So, I decided to ask her what the heck is going on.
And you know what happened?
When I let her know that I’d noticed her distress she seemed RELIEVED.
She started to calm, to focus, and to start moving forward again.
There’s power in having someone who is FEROCIOUSLY in love with you notice when you’re hurting yourself and tells you to CUT IT OUT.
Stop going it alone. Stop waiting for the right time or the right answer. Stop hurting yourself RIGHT NOW!
Sure, you can take more pain (probably a lot more), but I can’t stand watching you. Not one minute more.
No more floundering. It’s time for a reality check. Get yours here.
