Alone … Tired … Frustrated
Living two lives got old. Years spent making sure parts of life stayed hidden away got lonely. And it didn’t work anyway. Jill always had this gnawing feeling that the emperor had no clothes …like everyone could see the things she was trying so hard to hide.
Behind the overachiever was someone who couldn’t hold it together…who couldn’t make everything work. Behind the working hard and doing everything right was frustration and failure. Exhausting. Something had to change.
I went camping last fall with my wife and a friend. It snowed six inches overnight; and in the morning, we just couldn’t see the trail. All the landmarks were obscured by very low hanging clouds. We were cold, tired, lost. I remember this pit in my stomach…where do we go? Luckily, we had a map, compass, and an Eagle Scout.
That feeling of lost-ness isn’t reserved for being lost in the snow.
Life brings us to those end-of-the-road places…you just feel stuck. Where do I go from here? I wasn’t prepared for this. I don’t know what to do. I feel alone. I’m worn out
You have not failed. That lost feeling means you are being invited into a new stage of life. I’ve been there many times and will be again I’m sure. Every time, I’ve needed someone else to help me get my bearings. I couldn’t do it on my own. Sometimes it is a trusted friend, sometimes a stranger, other times a counselor.
Where are you stuck, alone, tired, frustrated? Let me meet you there.
