What’s Wrong With Me?
The empty feeling in my heart and the turmoil in my tummy had me asking myself “what’s wrong with me”? I experienced waves of confusion followed by tremendous surges of guilt as the question kept repeating itself in my mind, “what’s wrong with me”?
By most people’s standards I should have been ecstatically happy and I was happy to a certain degree. However, there was something missing and I did not know what that something was.
I had good health as well as two beautiful, healthy daughters. I was married to a wonderful, supportive man and we were financially well off with a thriving business with over seventy employees. We had regular holidays and many overseas trips. I enjoyed good relationships with extended family and friends.
“What’s wrong with me” was the question which had no easy answer. The fact that I was coming up to a BIG birthday, a birthday that signified the end of another decade of life, had me pondering my life. It became apparent to me that I had not really chosen many things in my life; it was more like life had just somehow happened.
This was particularly true of my working life. My life was one peppered with many different jobs, however none of them were occupations that I was passionate about. After our daughters started school I went to work in the family business. I did obtain satisfaction helping to make the working life of our employees more enjoyable, however I wanted to have my heart sing when I thought about work. I wanted to discover my purpose and passion so that the incessant question “what’s wrong with me” would cease.
I am pleased to say that I did discover my purpose and passion and ironically enough I help other people find their purpose and passion also. It makes my heart sing to help people live the fulfilled lives they desire and deserve with coaching, workshops and presentations.
I started asking more empowering questions than “what’s wrong with me”? and started asking questions like:
What do I care about most?
What do I do in my life that is worthwhile?
How do I want to be remembered?
What do I value?
Since the quality of our lives is based on the quality of the questions we ask, it helps to ask good quality questions. Remember, any question you ask you can find an answer too, so be careful what questions you ask. It is a bit like – be careful what you wish for.
Imagine no longer wondering “What’s wrong with me?” and being able to know why you are here by feeling more fulfilled every day in all areas of your life. This is what makes me so passionate about the work that I do, as it brings me much joy to see people’s lives change towards what they really want, and becoming more peaceful in the process.
