I want you to know... You Are Not Alone

Does this sound familiar…

Am I the only one who feels this way?

Nobody could possibly understand what I’m going through.

I must be a freak.

I’ll never be good enough.

If so, you are in the right place!

Almost everyone suffers with these thoughts every day…and yet we all feel completely alone, like no-one could ever understand.

If only we could x-ray people’s thoughts, we’d discover that we’re not even close to alone.  In fact, we’re surrounded by people who feel the same way.  The problem is that we’re all so busy trying to hide how awful we feel that we don’t notice that everyone else is doing the same thing.

That’s what I’m here for – to help you realize that you’re not alone.  To help you understand that

NO MATTER what you’ve done…

NO MATTER what you’ve experienced…

NO MATTER how you feel in this moment…
