NICE TO MEET YOU!
I’m Becca, and I am a certified life coach based in Arlington, Virginia.
As I mentioned, I struggled for years to find any kind of joy in life. But, I did all the “right” things.” Earned a masters degree. Got a prestigious, high paying job. Bought a home. Sounds good, right? On paper, yes. But, in actuality, I was miserable.
I became obsessed with trying to solve this puzzle. I searched and searched for answers to the questions I continually asked myself:
Why am I so unhappy?
Why am I anxious? Why don’t I feel more…confident?
What the hell is missing?
How can I fix this? Can I fix this??
I always felt like I was grasping at the next thing that was supposedly going to solve all of my perceived problems.
If I just moved to another city or didn’t have sick family members or left my toxic work environment or made new friends or got married…surely my life would be better. Surely I’d be happy and fulfilled and everything would be great.
So, I would pull myself up until something else would knock me right back into my “life is crap” mode. I say that because my father actually owns and wears a shirt that says “Life is Crap.”
