Life on the road can be stressful, mainly because you never quite know what will happen next, but life in one place? Then there’s our one-year old NGO Cloudhead Art. This last year founding, developing and maintaining a new business has been amazing, but he pace is wicked fast and too often feel I’m struggling to keep up.
Yes, change is a part of life, and often the good, happy sort takes as much adjustment as the really hard painful kind. So it stands to reason, that if change is a normal healthy part oflife, if you’re not changing, you’re stagnating and thus will feel friction from that as well. This is different from my first point in that you can have everything you want in your life, nothing is missing, but you are searching for change. I sit here at home typing with a gentle breeze blowing through the kitchen, birds of all ilk chirping and still I wonder to why I can’t shake this feeling. Your words kind of echo within me as I have left everything behind me to go wandering around the world for the past 3 months now.
Now I reached a point where I feel useless, and want to do something that would make me grow, that would actually make me move towards what I planned, my dreams.
Great post Leigh and it’s wonderful to see that you share your deep, sincere, honest feelings and other people do the same on the comments section. It seems to me that this is a question that a lot of people are seeking to answer this year. My brain can take only so much information and be connected to so many people at any given time.
I have spoken with many people who say they know they need to start trusting others but they don’t know if they can. In pondering this question and after talking with many who struggle to trust others, I believe that while there are many things that contribute to the struggle of trusting others, at the core is the fact that we struggle to fully embrace who we are. If you have trouble fully embracing all of who you are, you will certainly struggle with trusting others.
We tend to start with saying we can’t find trustworthy people, while in reality we are really afraid to let others know our true self. We are driven by societal pressure to appear perfect, and we feel any show of weakness or flaw will mean we are not perfect. The key to finding people to trust is to first start with truly and fully embracing who you are.


What you will discover once you truly and fully embrace who you, is a willingness to share who you are with others.

I run from one line of my to-do list to the next, never quite paying complete attention to anything and never finding time to properly rest. Sort of can’t win on the happiness train, can you? Then again, it’s not really so much about winning as it is realizing that life is a cycle of constant movement. You look at your life, house, career, spouse and friends seeing what isn’t there, what could be, what used to be. Instead, there is a part of me that will always remain off balance until I make the clear choice to shift my thinking. Definitely helps to see others are also experiencing the same or something similar and that you aren’t alone in the largest small world out there. I guess it’s like you say, we have to learn how to be happy at the moment and then switch our mentality when the time calls for it. When I ask why, the typical answer is, “I am afraid others would judge me or not like me if they get to know the real me.” They also fear letting others know that they are struggling. When you live in shame and embarrassment of certain aspects of who you are, then most certainly, you will struggle to let others in.
We struggle to trust because of the shame we feel about mistakes we have made, or we feel shame because of the actions of others – perhaps a family member or close friend – and how those actions have impacted our lives. For some of us this will be a challenging and difficult thing, but it must be done if we will begin trusting others. And when you start sharing who you truly are with at least one other person, you will realize you have begun to trust. If you are struggling in this area, I want to encourage you to first start working on truly and fully embrace who you. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. That you are looking at this site is an indication that you have some interest in life or leadership development coaching. Definitely helps to see others are also experiencing the same or something similar and that you aren't alone in the largest small world out there.


I guess it's like you say, we have to learn how to be happy at the moment and then switch our mentality when the time calls for it.
But anyway, I think just realizing a shift in thought is needed is probably the most important thing in all this, and then taking action. I think creating very clear boundaries both for how, when and why we use social media is a good start. This pretense leads us to conclude that we can’t find people we can trust because we want everyone around us to see us as perfect. Sure, mistakes have been made; some of us have made mistakes that have left irreparable damage. Perhaps you are looking to go further but are feeling stuck in your career or life in general. In some ways, that’s really lovely, something I found myself dearly craving after so long without a place to call home. Our business is going well, and I work overlooking the most peaceful beautiful view imaginable. What has transpired from childhood to adulthood that now makes trusting others so difficult? Any number of things may be at the root of feelings of shame or embarrassment in your life.
However, before you are able to trust others, you will first have to fully embrace your mistakes and see them for just that: poor choices with bad consequences.
Perhaps you feel you have plateaued in your role as leader but something inside of you is saying that you can go further.
Then you can start making a change.DISCUSSION POINT: Where are you in the spectrum I describe here? The good news here is that no one is without fault when it comes to having made poor choices they later regret.
