“I was able to breathe again and step back. I regained the ability to see the bigger picture and I learned how to be conscious of what is happening to me and to take conscious decisions as to next steps. I started a journey that is ongoing. This coaching relationship was positive, honest, eye opening. It also forced me to go through a self-reflection process I would never have gone through by myself. Having a more formalized approach with exercises also helped to share my feelings, my fears and insecurities with my partner. I immediately felt in safe environment where I could let go and break down to better reconstruct myself. I feel proud when I observe myself noticing behaviors of mine I dislike or that make me uncomfortable, and when I manage to consciously step back, think about a situation, and sometimes even take immediate action. I also celebrate managing to lower the pressure I put on myself, and being more gentle with myself.”
