Seeking a sense of direction


I have several ideas for projects that I think would be fun and interesting and potentially lead to something sellable or publishable … and I have absolutely no motivation to make them happen. I just daydream about them.

I don’t know if I need a life coach or a counselor, but I’m starting with counseling. Because I also think I have issues managing personal relationships. I’m far too dependent on other people (and possibly bourbon) to make my life fun and interesting and lovable. And I think both my upbringing and my former marriage have made it both difficult for me to communicate emotions and led me to expect derision when I finally do.

My behavior is making the people I care about most unhappy, and that’s not acceptable.

I found out from a colleague I get six free counseling sessions through my workplace. You can gain a lot of insight in six conversations with an impartial stranger.

So yeah, I’m gonna get a little help finding my sense of direction and purpose.

    I’m proud of you for being truly willing to look at yourself and for taking steps forward to change what you don’t love. You’re amazing.
