There’s a basic TMS issue that we run into time and time again with our coaching clients and it’s called RESISTANCE. What I’m talking about is resistance to change. And change is required to get past chronic pain and move forward to a better life.
Now, resistance can block you from two angles:
1. Resisting making a life change (relationship, job, even your day-to-day routine).
2. Resisting pursuing (or getting back to) something you’re passionate about.
Tension Myositis Syndrome loves the status quo: “Stay where you are and stay in pain.” Perfectionists and Goodists (people pleasers), in particular, have a hard time making changes because that means you’re also vulnerable to making a few mistakes. But un-chartered waters are often where we must go to heal once and for all!
WATCH THIS VIDEO until the end, where I share one of my favorite “juicy” bits from author Glennon Doyle about what she said to her daughter about being true to herself. I promise it will resonate with you too.
