It is being fearless and reaping the rewards of a meaningful life. But, along the way we begin to feel like we are losing control. We begin to ask ourselves who we are? And why do we act the way we do? sometimes even opposite to what we truly want. In all of this, we feel we are alone and a creeping sense of doom begins to engulf. This could play out in our relationships, parenting or at work.
Well, the first piece of good news is, we understand! We welcome you on this journey of discovery of “who you are”, and “why you are”, without judgment, but with love and acceptance of “I am”.
