I constantly felt like I wasn’t enough. How could anyone respect and love me, when I wasn’t anywhere near what I thought I should have been?
I wasn’t successful, I didn’t have a career, I wasn’t rich...
So I struggled with my self-esteem, looking at the mirror and seeing all the things I wasn’t. My anxiety and feelings of worthlessness were eating me alive.
Maybe you can relate?
And while I thought that becoming successful would fix that, no matter how hard I tried, I didn’t get any relief from the pain… in fact, it made it worse. Everything was a constant battle, a tight weight on my chest making it hard to breathe…
So as most of us do, I turned to self-help to find a way to fix it.
But it didn’t work. Because I was using those solutions to help me get to the things I thought would fix me… and in doing so, I was making it all worse.
Eventually, I started questioning everything. Why did I have to do all this work just to feel normal? Why did I have to change everything about myself and my life… just to feel OK with who I was?
Isn’t it crazy, if you think about it?
Eventually, I stumbled on different spiritual niches and I started exploring them because they seemed to be based on entirely different ideas.
I explored Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and other philosophies…
As I started practicing them, I started to realize how my chronic stress wasn’t due to me not being enough… but because I had bought into the idea that I had to live up to some external standard to fix the internal.
And as you now know, that never works!
I was hooked. For the next few years, I spent every waking moment learning, meditating, and digging deep inside the conditioning I had been subjected to my entire life.
Today I really am the luckiest person in the world, because I enjoy the constant bliss that comes with simply being truly awakened to the awe of being alive…
And I want to share what I learned with you.
