Out of the Nest #2
– A Guest Blog by Pamela Partridge, Millennial/Gen-Z Post-Grad, Wise, and Pursuing Life Fulfillment with a Passion –
We all have people in our lives who want the best for us. Whether it’s our parents/family, friends, or significant other. These are the people who are on our side no matter what. But sometimes when we ask for advice (and even when we don’t), we fail to listen to them. We think we know better, that they just don’t understand what we’re going through, or maybe they’re blindly optimistic when we actually need a reality check.
A “neutral” person is someone who is not a close friend, family, or significant other, AND who will be 100% honest, push you to succeed, and hold you accountable.
You should be able to trust this person, and
I found my “neutral” person in Kerri, as a life/career coach. I needed someone to talk to you that wasn’t my parents or my friends, and who would also help me move into the next stage in my life. *As a side note, I also have an online fitness coach, because accountability can be a struggle in many parts of my life*
Find your “neutral” person. It can be a life coach, but it can also be a mentor, a not *too* close family friend, old sports coach, maybe even a previous boss who was a strong advocate for you. Find that one person who you will listen to, and who you know will be honest, push you to succeed, and hold you accountable.
Til next week…
