Just like you, I am human, but what does that really mean?
I chose coaching because I like to see the positives in tough situations, and I believe in people even when they aren’t believing in themselves. I take great care in myself through rituals, meditation and self-introspection. I do this for me, but also so that I can give my all to my coaching sessions. But, just like you, I am human, but what does that really mean?
To me, it means feeling, thinking, good days and bad days, innate emotions and responses to situations, living, breathing, doing and not doing!
Being human means being genuine, being authentic and being true to yourself and others around you. Being kind, generous, smiling, laughing and crying.
To be human also means messing up, making mistakes, hurting other people, hurting yourself, feeling pain, feeling guilty and being jealous.
So, to me, it is also about accepting all that being human encompasses and having an awareness of the depth of emotions and behaviours we all feel and do. To be the best human I can be, means embracing the present, riding the waves when things get tough so that I come over the crest and into smooth waters stronger than I was before.
Being human means there will be times when even after we have tried all of our techniques and rituals, we still cannot see the positives.
I chose to be a coach because I do see the positives in touch situations, but as we have just explored, being human means there will be times when even after we have tried all of our techniques and rituals, we still cannot see the positives. So, don’t be hard on yourself if you can’t find the energy for positivity, take time to slow down, feel what your feeling and be human.
