Through my work with Andy I came to realize that the fundamental issue wasn’t my job, and that finding a new one wasn’t the solution. My work with Andy allowed me to take several steps back, re-focus on myself holistically, and truly shifted my perspective. I had so much anxiety from being consumed with the future and “what-ifs” that I was no longer present. This in-turn negatively influenced my relationship with myself, and by extension, with my family, friends and job as well. It was my job that had become the scapegoat. It’s an easy thing to see clearly in hindsight, but quite difficult to see when in the middle of it. It took a lot of work to become more present, and still does, but as a result I am genuinely a much more positive and contented person thanks to my work with Andy."
When we met, I was unwilling to take responsibility for any of the things in my life that were bringing me pain, frustration, anger. I believed that all of life’s circumstances and people were the cause of it all. I was stuck blaming with one excuse after another. Plain and simple, I was a victim, but I didn’t see it!
Andy helped me see things really differently. He helped me see that by complaining and waiting for things to change, I was exacerbating my own problem, and that by taking responsibility, I could actually change things both internally and externally.
Today, while I still have things that come up that trigger me, I know how to flip the script, take responsibility, and shift gears so that I’m living with more ease and flow, particularly in my work life. I’ve learned that it doesn’t have to be a struggle."
