From an early age, I carried within me an innate calling to care for those around me. It was as if I had a pair of antennae tuned to the emotions of others. An ability to recognize when someone was unwell, or when something was wrong.
This deep-rooted desire to care and support for others did not diminish throughout my life.
As a child, I felt naturally drawn to care for other children and even adults around me.
Little did I know that these early experiences would lay the foundation for the path I would take later in life. But it took time, hard work and self-knowledge to learn how to use these sensitivities effectively.
My fascination with the human mind and its complexities grew as I matured.
I became deeply fascinated with the workings of our inner selves and how we can overcome life's challenges to live healthier and happier lives. This curiosity led me down the path of working with people, delving into the field of mental health, and immersing myself in the study of psychology.
Looking back, I realize that my sensitivities were not just a part of me, but a powerful tool waiting to be honed. In my youth, I didn’t really know where I was headed and it took me a long time to realize that I was picking up on other people's emotions and feelings. I thought there was something strange about me. I had trouble feeling comfortable in a social setting because I could sense when someone was uncomfortable. I struggled with boundaries and not knowing what I actually wanted because I was so busy taking care of the people around me to make them feel comfortable.
Over the years I have learned so much about myself and the need for self-care. I am aware of my needs, my wants, and my boundaries. I have learned when to step back and be for myself to recharge my batteries and when to ask for help and make myself vulnerable.
Today, I value my ability to sense the unspoken emotions of the people around me.
I’ve learned to use them as a force for good by offering support, lending an empathetic ear, and helping people navigate their emotional world. It’s a great privilege to connect with others on such a deep level, and I’m dedicated to supporting my clients on their journey to spiritual and emotional well-being.
I’m sharing this because I feel incredibly grateful for the journey that’s brought to where I am today. My journey from a sensitive child who just wanted to take care of others, to a person who is committed to helping as many people as possible live happier, healthier, and more satisfying lives.
To feel mentally, physically and emotionally healthy. To grow as human beings and get closer to themselves.
I look forward to continuing this journey, expanding my knowledge, and making a positive impact in the lives of the people I meet along the way.
Here’s to being grateful,
