My Commitment to you: "I get you, and I’ve got you."
These were not sentiments I heard from others growing up and certainly not in my professional life as a rabbi. I had the approach and air of: “I’ve got this.” (Admittedly, I started to write “this” with an “!” and quickly and sadly realized that at that time in my life I never used exclamation marks. I was calm, cool, and collected. I had few exclamation marks in my life!)
Going solo and living without exclamation marks worked well for me. I was the good child who played by the rules and excellent student who could always be counted upon. I was the rabbi who could handle any situation and quickly pivot from officiating a funeral to playing guitar with preschool students.
It all worked.
Until it didn’t.
Until I realized my inside self was not seen by the outside world.
Until I realized I had allowed myself to be boxed in, living someone else’s expectations and purpose.
Until I realized I could not do it alone.
My exit from this solitary life was not graceful.
And I broke a lot of trust.
And, it was the best learning tool I ever created for myself.
I discovered what it means to be human. I deepened my compassion and empathy. I developed profound connections. And, I created a life of integrity, beauty, and blessings.
Wherever you are on your journey, my commitment to you as your coach is …
I get you, and I’ve got you.
