So tired of being stuck...

Thank you Chris for the sensitive response. I have gifts. Kindness. A reverence for Beauty, in all forms. And I have skills. What I lack is energy to create a purpose for myself. No confidence. Often and easily discouraged. Afraid to start down a path and find it joyless. I need a mentor. (I taught high school English; I’m a good writer; I speak Spanish; I’m a competitive tennis player; I have an artistic “eye” for design; I am intellectual and deep philosophically). 😊

Wow, all I can say is Wow. Your gifts are your amazing talents…for languages, athletics, visual activity. Have you ever used your Spanish for private or family ESL? I found that to be gratifying.

It just seems like “intellectual and deeply philosophical” doesn’t match up with “often and easily discouraged”. Self compassion might be the order of the day,

My life partner was hospitalized for depression when it took away his ability to sleep. His psychiatrist, who he still checks in with, told him……”Just say yes to something”.

That is how he found me.

Be content and at ease. Chris
