Emotions explored: Navigating resentment & infatuation & their hidden impact on our authenticity.

Belonging is a huge, very important topic.

Everyone wants to feel they belong. If you currently don’t, then life simply does not feel good or right. What most forget is: Belonging is not a thing – it’s a feeling. Yes, we need to talk about our feelings and how our lived experience is not producing our desired feelings.

And if we want to feel better – then we first need to get better at feeling in the first place.

But some feelings are simply really hard to experience and others are really  hard to put into words – and most are both: hard to have and hard to talk about. It’s my thing to break them down and give us better ways to talk about them, so that those important conversations become less awkward.

And speaking of ‘feeling lost’, I’m thrilled to invite you to explore the depths of two powerful feelings that can lead us astray, far from the shores of our true selves. If we go there, then we most likely, most definitely will lose our sense of belonging.

The essential question I like to ask is: “How do you want to come home to yourself?”

This notion of ‘coming home’ carries a profound meaning.

It extends beyond the threshold of a physical safe space and crosses over into the territory of our inner authenticity. ‘Coming home to yourself’ is about finding our way back from the relentless pressures and the exhausting facade of performative behavior we put on in the outside world. It’s the journey back to the roots of who we truly are.

Now, think about it – the very idea of having to ‘come home’ implies that, at some point, we’ve ventured away. We may have, unintentionally or unknowingly, abandoned our personal truths and values, falling victim to the standards and expectations set by others. We’ve taken a detour, and it’s time to find our way back.

I’m thrilled to invite you to explore the depths of resentment and infatuation.

These aren’t just abstract concepts; they’re feelings that can consume us, seducing us to go down a rabbit hole, without us even realizing it. And almost always we’re losing sight of the authentic ‘us’ in the process.

In this weeks podcast episode, we’re going to embark on a thought-provoking exploration of how these captivating feelings, resentment and infatuation, might be subtly shaping your life right now, because we can’t snap our focus away from them. 

So, if you’ve ever felt the tug of resentment or the intoxicating allure of infatuation, join me as I delve into the heart of these emotions. Discover how they may be impacting your path towards coming home to yourself, and gain fresh perspectives that could help you find your way back to your most authentic, true self.
