Anonymous said: What are your thoughts on the burgeoning life-coaching industry? Do you think people distressed to the point of needing to pay for a listener, constant guidance and unwavering support would benefit from life coaching? Or do we just need to, like you say, "be comfortable with ourselves?" Speaking of which, what are your tips for those of us, who are lonely and are struggling to try to not be bored with ourselves?
You know, everyone goes through rough times. Everyone needs a guiding light. Everyone needs someone, someone that is outside of their own head and can give that point of view that isn’t in the situation… That point of view is so, so valuable. It helps us not make decisions we wouldn’t normally make when we’re not in the right state of mind. I think everyone should have a life coach in some capacity, whether it’s a mom or sister or best friend or an uncle or someone you pay to help you. Everyone needs that release and security that we can’t give ourselves sometimes.
Lonely and struggling to not be bored with yourself? Mix it up. Go outside. Get out of your head for ten minutes, an hour or a full day. Be inspired by something. Try a new class. Life is so long and so short all at the same time and it could be over in a blink of an eye… The greatest thing about your life is you can make it to be anything you want. Don’t ever take that for granted.
