What often happens when someone else is helping you to make a decision about what is right for you, they think in terms of themselves and their fears or any limitations they have about life come into their decision making along with judgments about you and about life..
A common scenario can sound like this … You ask your friend to ultimately life coach you into making a really important decision when your friend has never had life coach training! They steer your thinking in a direction that is not best for you and you ultimately make a decision that is not the right fit for you.
Now you just feel like giving up. You don’t know what to do. You are not happy. This affects all your relationships especially the one with your friend. Where has the fun in life gone?
