Once upon a time, I spoke to a woman who said, “I don’t feel adequate enough to talk to you.”
How’s that for an opening?
This woman had reasons to feel less-than, stuck, and scared. To protect her privacy, I won’t share those reasons here. It suffices to say that she had a tough history.
She dreamed of helping other people,
but struggled to help herself.
When I encouraged her to get support for her journey, she made an effort and asked for help once. But when she didn’t hear back, she stopped asking.
