“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.”
When I was 16, I had my first life coaching experience in a high school workshop.
I remember going to that space full of doubts; Fourth year of high school was coming to an end and I didn’t know which high school option to choose. I was afraid of choosing the wrong option, wasting years, separating from my colleagues, and above all, I was afraid of regretting my choice.
In that workshop, I understood that no one could make that decision for me, but people could support me and contain me in my goals searching. Therefore, what was expected of me had to translate into “what I expect of myself.” The desires that people around us places in our life project can blind our eyes and make us travel an alien path.
Life choice is a proper and responsible decision that leads us to reflect on those aspects that build the person we are today. It forces us to feel the fear of looking at the unknown and the different. We all know deep down, that a choice implies a resignation, and in both cases, we must leave our comfort zone to reach our goals.
Today, with 31 years and looking backwards, I find myself going through similar doubts applied to other areas, finally understanding that the personal project isn’t something that determines us and pigeons us forever, but is a permanent construction within a path that we We choose to transit.
I accept and understand that being and feeling disoriented is part of finding guidance in our life project.
