So many people around, but you feel alone and overwhelmed.
Being with people all day – family, friends, colleagues, you interact with them all.
Going through the motions. Smiling, interacting, solving problems.
They would never know how empty you feel.
When it comes time for you, there’s nothing left.
Drained from the day after day of being there for others.
Even if someone offers to help you, it’s hard to trust and be vulnerable enough to even tell anyone you need something. Fear that they will disappoint, like so many have done in your past, you say, “I’m fine,” and keep on going.
At night you lay in bed and feel disappointed in the day and think of all the things you need to get done tomorrow.
Never really feeling good enough… thinking that you can never do enough.
Other times, you’ve tried being an open book.
You know the approach… “trust everyone until they give me a reason not to trust.”
But no one can pass your trust test. Trusting others feels vulnerable. Being vulnerable has hurt in the past.
Building close relationships with others is a dilemma. The thought of being in a close relationship is so scary, but the thought of being alone is also scary.
What do you do?
The constant cycle of “to trust or not to trust” is sucking away your energy, joy, and hope – distancing you from your partner, children, other family members, and friends.
But it’s crucial that your voice is heard. Crucial that what you say, and feel, is taken seriously.
It’s time to put an end to the trusting game. Are you ready for lasting change?

Hi, I’m Sharon.
I love the work I do. Who else gets to experience working with courageous people? People who love to learn about themselves and who try new things in order to grow and heal.
We will work together so that you can have a clear view of what is causing your pain and then put a plan into action to alleviate that pain.
It’s true, trust doesn’t come easy. Over time, while we work together, you will see that trusting yourself is powerful. The fears of getting hurt diminish, and you are free.
You have it in you!
We can make it happen.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
