Embracing Growth: From Coping to Thriving

This weekend marked one of the toughest and most triggering times for me, a journey I'm not ready to unpack fully.

However, amidst the struggles, I want to share a glimpse of my growth โ€“ not to dwell on the pain but to inspire and encourage you.

In the past, facing a triggering situation would have led me down a path of self-destruction:

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ I would have turned to alcohol to numb the pain.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Seeking attention in unhealthy ways.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Indulging in binge eating and unhealthy habits.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Drowning in negative self-talk without remorse.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Allowing self-pity to extend the impact for months.

But this time, in the face of adversity, I've witnessed transformative growth:

๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿฝ Choosing Sobriety: I reminded myself why I chose an alcohol-free life, resisting the urge to self-medicate.

๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿฝ Finding Strength in Faith: Instead of seeking external validation, I turned to my source of strength โ€“ Jesus Christ.

๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿฝ Sticking to Routines: Even in moments of low motivation, I adhered to routines as best as I could.

๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿฝ Conquering Negative Self-Talk: While the struggle remains, I swiftly take captive negative thoughts, preventing them from taking over.

๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿฝ Seeking Support: I reached out for prayer, connecting with trusted loved ones who guided me back to the path of strength.

I invite you to reflect on your old coping strategies and the positive changes you've embraced. If you find yourself where I was five years ago, uncertain of where to begin, consider the steps above or hop on a free 20-minute clarity call with me.

Let's navigate this journey together, and I'd love to be a supportive companion on your path to growth. ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿฝ

Remember โ€“ tough times don't last, but tough people do. ๐Ÿ’›
