It's Time to Start Again
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
~ Steve Jobs
Today more than ever we are in need of someone to listen to us. Do you realize that listening is the basis of all professional help that is available. If you go to the doctor, they have to listen closely to what you are telling them before they can diagnose your health issues. If you go to a lawyer, they have to listen to your story before they will take your case. If you go to a religious or spiritual advisor, they are going to listen to what you have to say, so that they can offer you guidance, prayers and healing.
You cannot heal in silence for an untold story never mends.
Years ago we had more connections to our families and our communities. We had more people we could trust and depend upon to help us sort through our stories. Today with our high levels of responsibility, commitments, expectations and stress, we feel like no one has the time to listen to our fears, worries and struggles because they have too many of their own.
Unfortunately we have become disconnected from each other despite all the modern gadgets that connect us.
In our fast paced world, there is often no one to encourage our dreams, share our accomplishments and give us an honest opinion. We fear the judgement of others and are afraid of looking vulnerable in the eyes of our family, friends and coworkers. We suffer by trying to keep everything inside and we often beat ourselves up because we think that no one will understand. Our troubles are often based on limiting beliefs, shame, fears, regrets, self image issues and the inability to understand ourselves and each other.
Sometimes we don't always need the standard professional services; instead we just need someone to listen to our struggles, help us understand ourselves, offer us clarity, direction, honesty, support, encouragement and someone who will remind us that somehow we are going to be okay and that we can and must look after ourselves. I believe that having someone to listen to us is sometimes just what we need the most. It is something so basic, that we often take it for granted. We all have a yearning and a need to be heard and understood so that we can move forward in life.
Talking through your challenges with someone you trust, gives you a voice, helps to unburden the heaviness of your inner dialogue, lessens your emotional struggles including fear, relieves your stress and most importantly helps you to find your own solutions.
