I felt like I was emotionally drowning and completely incapable of feeling hopeful or positive ever again.
I had been in a “non-existent” relationship with an emotionally manipulative man and the effects of this involvement had run deeper than I thought possible.
I found myself crying everyday unable to figure out how I attracted such a terrible person.
Every time I heard of another friend/colleague/family member…fill in the blank announcing an engagement, wedding or baby shower. I was unable to feel any genuine happiness or joy for them. I dreaded going to weddings and any other special occasions as it just reminded me of what I did not have, but desperately wanted. I looked sad, irritable and unhappy…and I felt all those things too.
During the Marina J Coaching Program I learnt to love myself just the way I am. I am making better choices with the kind of men I choose to maintain contact with, and am getting better and better at weeding out those who just don’t “do it” for me!
I’ve learnt to take pleasure in the little things and I was successful in getting the job I have always been striving for within the organisation I work for. My work relationships have also improved drastically, and I find myself being invited to lots of social gatherings organised through my work place. I now look forward to doing the things I love to do and am now so much more optimistic and expectant of what has to offer me going forward.
The best thing I have learnt through this coaching program and working with Marina, is that I am enough and I am more than worthy! I’ve gone from having a very heavy heart & struggling to overcome sticky situations, to feeling more light-hearted, relaxed and now I actually look forward to those “sticky situations” as I know they are going to teach me something new! I have learnt to ask for what I want – and I’m comfortable in my own skin.
I don’t feel panicky about being 30 and single. In fact, I celebrated my 30th birthday travelling around Europe and I have this amazing tingling feeling that my 30s are going to be the best years of my life!
