So, you thought you had life well-planned and figured out, with some goals for school, work, or relationships, right? You thought you were ready to run just like the others, but now you realize you have trouble making good things happen or things are just not going your way.
How do you feel? Doubtful, worried and confused? Anxious or Depressed? Are you dealing with intense anger, fear, guilt or shame or seem helpless, hopeless or worthless? Is your energy up and down? Can you tell if your family is on your back or here to help?
The struggle is real. What will you do?
Heading through your late teens 20s or 30s with your custom blend of low motivation, low persistence, low self-confidence and high social anxiety, high performance avoidance, high expectations of others, plus throw in intensely negative reactions to stress, makes it challenging to function.
You are bright and sensitive, with potential, so what’s going on?
As you look around at your peers, you may wonder, Did other people just get it? Have I been left out of the mix?
You may very well have been left out. For now, at least. There are skills sets that you may not have that you can learn to make your life work. Without the skills, it can be hard to transform anxiety into excitement and be motivated for action.
I can teach you those skills.
