Do you ever feel like your heart just isn’t in it?
Have you ever found yourself feeling burned out in your workspace? Or found yourself shutting down in a relationship, even when you really don’t want to? Have you ever found yourself caught up in some kind of self-destructive patterns that you just can’t seem to break? These problems are close to my heart, because I have struggled with each of them.
These are the scenarios that are tied to wounds that we all carry within us, unconsciously. We all own some kind of hidden baggage like this. But there is a way for us to heal the wounds from the past that interfere with our lives. Dare to enter your unexplored room. Find your heart.
