Needing a Friendship Facelift?
If you look at the friendships you have around you, how far back do they go?
Many of your girlfriends you’ve made may date back to the first meeting in grade school or were part of a collegiate team you played on, maybe you were introduced at your place of worship, through your workplace or you became friends with a parent of a friend your child friended.
As you work on your personal development it’s not uncommon to reassess your core values, your belief systems, perhaps you’re now ready to ditch the old stories the mind keeps throwing at you. And let’s face it we tend to be attracted to those who are “like-minded”.
Part of your personal journey is also assessing those whose company you keep and keep at the forefront. As the mind you have has changed, through the mindset work you have undertaken, are you aligned with those who you spend most of your time with?
I’m not suggesting you divorce your current friends. Not at all. But invite you to look at diversifying them from a place of mental, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
Take a Look Around
Do a friendship wellness assessment. As a career woman, are you more top heavy with friends and colleagues that support and hold you accountable with encouragement yet provide compassionate feedback. Do they create a thinking environment with you around the goals you have for yourself today? Do they match your current core values? Do they emotionally serve YOU?
When you have goals in mind and are looking to take care of yourself, the person in your life who needs to come first is YOU.
Relationships can move you toward your goals or away from them. And personal goals can move you together in a relationship or create a divide.
If you choose to step into the invitation to do a friendship wellness assessment, keep a list of the thoughts that come up. As you know, the answers come from the heart. It’s the mind whose job is to keep you “safe” – in the safety of comfortable (and change of any kind is less than comfortable). Pay attention to your thoughts.
Why don’t you spend 30-minutes on a call with me? Let’s sift it out, create an action plan on working through the thought keeping you unclear as to where to start.
On the call we will:
- Help you get started on tackling a challenge you are dealing with;
- Discuss the benefits of entering into a coaching partnership, and
- You will walk away with at least 1 coaching tool and strategy that you can immediately put into action!
