When it's 2 a.m. and you're hiding from your partner, stuffing your feelings with brownies and chocolate, because you feel so inadequate and insecure... But you dare not let anyone know…
You're a hard-working woman. You work hard, you hustle hard, and you have accolades and awards up the wazoo.
Yet your partner is in the other room and your heart feels tight with fear that you may get found out…
Underneath your pristine exterior, there’s a part of you that believes, you're really not this successful woman everyone perceives you to be. You're a fake and you're a fraud and if anybody knew that, you think they would lose all respect for you.
So to make up for the fact that you feel insignificant and insecure, you throw yourself even harder into work. You go and you go, fueled by the hustle that comes from proving you’re not the failure you think others think you are.
And the entire time you're falling apart inside. Your relationship is a mess. You're not able to connect and you feel your partner doesn't understand you.
You’re stressed out, burnt out, and you’re even starting to lose connection with your passion and your mission in life.
What would your colleagues say?
What would your partner say?
Would your partner leave, if they found out you're not this strong independent woman that you make yourself out to be?
What will they all say...?
What will they all think...?
Now that you've had your 2 a.m. brownie cry it's time to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and get back to bed. You've got superhuman duties to attend to tomorrow. Because some part of you believes you're not allowed to be human, you need to go above and beyond, to cover up for the fact that you are falling apart and feeling like shit inside...
If this sounds familiar then welcome. You're in the right place and I'm so glad you're here.
When your insecurities creep up on you, and the imposter syndrome has you in its grip, it can feel like you’re all alone and you dare not let anyone in on what’s really going on. The paradox is, the more you close yourself off, the more trapped in a shame spiral you become, dragging yourself further and further into despair.
In contrast, when you allow yourself to find a soft place to land, a safe space to call your own, a space where you allow yourself to be held and nurtured, you can begin to heal. You can begin to feel worthy. And you can reconnect with those you love.
If you are ready for your soft place to land, reach out to us and schedule your Get Acquainted Call today.
