My therapist told me about this client today. This woman who is about my age – just under 40. She’s worked hard, got several degrees and is successful in her chosen career. She’s smart and she’s good at what she does. She’s driven and focused and secured an executive position in her mid to late 30s. She sounds amazing.
Like me, though, she’s feeling dissatisfied and not sure where she’s going or what she’s doing. My therapist said that, like me, she’s feeling stuck because she’s never really believed in herself.
But you know what’s really weird?
The person my therapist described IS me. Only it doesn’t feel like me. I don’t identify with ANY of those things.
I need some of what this girl’s got (minus the video clip which IMHO is a disaster).
