Hey there, I’m Nat.
I used to be someone who spent most of my life believing that to be successful, safe, valued, and loved, I couldn’t be me.
Because of this, I had a hard time trusting myself and I was making everybody, who seemed to know how to do the things I wanted to do, the authority.
I tried everything to get what I wanted – often sacrificing my own needs and desires, putting other people first, giving a lot of myself, or striving to achieve more. I also put an enormous amount of effort into applying all kinds of systems and formulas that people have told me would work for me. And yet they either felt at odds with who I am or they required so much of me that I was exhausted.
With the systems that felt at odds with me, I was told a lot of times that I was just resistant, that these ways didn’t feel natural because they were new to me, and that I should do them anyway.
So I did. And I bet you have too. And that’s part of why some of you are burned out.
I want you to know that what I discovered is that there’s a part of me that is always telling me whether or not something is going to work for me. I had gotten so used to disregarding that part of me as though it didn’t know what it was talking about. I was giving all this authority to other people.
Most of us have learned to believe in things that we get from other people who are successful in ways that we want to be. We make those things more important than our inner knowing or our connection to ourselves.
What changed for me was that I got so drained and exhausted that I gave up and started honoring what actually felt right to me. The great irony was my life started to work.
It’s so easy to get caught up in all the things you need to do to fix the problem that you think is you.
When we get into that mode, we try everything. We’re willing to entertain all kinds of approaches because we no longer are that connected to our own clarity and we don’t feel capable of knowing how to navigate.
I really get where you’re at. I’ve been there. I know how hard it is. I know how painful it is. I know that you’ve been willing to try practically anything and I know that you’re not really even sure anymore if anything will ever work.
I promise you there’s another way.
What I've Come to Know As Truth
- That thing you do where you’re hiding, avoiding, controlling, overachieving or over-giving to prevent people from seeing your perceived flaws? Well, it’s exhausting, keeps you from doing the work you’re here to do, and keeps you from enjoying the richness and beauty of life that is here now.
- When you feel good about yourself, you suddenly become more open to what’s inside of you, and you can do the things you want to do.
- Your bold aliveness is your contribution in the world.
