My fears, shame and guilt need to be expressed before I can sufficiently deal with it. And while I’m doing it, I can now ask better questions.

There was a media personality who struggled with her life after Hollywood starting a business. After a discussion of her fears and needs, sharing that she was fighting an uphill battle to start a business. She feels that she has a lot on her plate.

Her therapist echoed her sentiment and asked the question. “You seem to be in an uphill battle to start a business and you have so much on your plate. So what’s on your plate?

She had a funny look on her face for a few seconds. Then stumbled to find an answer. Finally with a light shining in her eyes, she said, “I don’t know.”

After a few more seconds, she retorted: “I feel overwhelmed.”

She assumed she has to fight an uphill battle. She assumed she had to win. She assumed she has to control everything. But all she needed to do was to acknowledge “I feel overwhelmed.”

Acknowledging what we feel and what we are doing is the first step. This is the first step to see we have some assumptions. These assumptions are the foundation for the poor decisions we make for a problem.

I think her counseling realizations hit more for my personal life than her. Thank you universe for showing me the way. But even better, thank you, me, for asking the question: Universe, can you show me the way?
