I left my birth country and growing career in 2011 and moved to the USA, trusting to find more happiness and fulfilment throughout that radical change.
I quickly learned that “wherever I go, there I am, with all of my thoughts, my feelings, my beliefs, my stories, my experiences and perspectives from my entire life”.
I felt lost and scared. All I wanted was to belong, to feel happy, and to be safe. And there I was, a stranger in a strange land with no family, no friends and broken English. It took me a while to realize that my journey was necessary for the transformation I was seeking. The courage to change occurred when I started to journal with my coach. The act of writing in a journal enabled me and my coach to see how my unhealthy thoughts were interfering with my deep desire to be happy. It became clear that I was projecting my old stories into my current life. That is why I could not be happy with my current partner because I was already expecting that he would eventually leave me anyway. The wall of protection that I was building around myself, in reality, was stopping me from allowing the good stuff and great people to come into my life.
