Do you ever feel like with all the family and friends around you, that you still don't have a solid support system?
Someone that will hear you out without judging, look at things from a wider perspective and help you come to your own decisions?
All too often what we actually end up with is a lot of people dictating what you should or shouldn't do, judging decisions you may or may not make and only talking things through with you if it fits what they believe should happen.
Or worse, not talking about things at all, as if the very fact that you need to talk a decision through means you're weak and again, need dictating to.
Anyone who's been through this knows that what this ultimately leads to is a constant stream of worried, indecisive thinking that takes place in our own minds.
With no safe place to vent for fear of being talked down to or talked about behind your back, we keep everything inside creating a bottleneck of thoughts and feelings that have no escape route.
And guess what, no decisions can possibly be made when there's no space left in your mind to digest everything that's going on.
Having someone there that will listen without judging, listen without being emotionally attached - and listen without running off and sharing your innermost secrets with others; is really hard to find.
It's what led to me to turn to someone else, someone outside of my situation who would guide me back to my natural, confident self, where I would not only be able to make my own decisions but also ultimately trust that my decisions were right for me.
That person was my coach.
They guided me towards a place where I could discover my own clarity on my situation and without telling me what to do; led me to a place where I could finally see through the jumble of thoughts in my head. Ultimately, they helped me to restore my trust and contentment in Allah's plan for me, something I had been unable to do for many months.
Once that trust is restored and your mind is quiet and clear, it becomes very easy to choose which path you should take.
And in the same way that my coach was able to guide me to this place of clarity, that's what I'd love to do for you too. All you need to do is click here to access my free online webinar: 'How to know for sure whether or not to leave your marriage’.
