The journey we make back to ourselves

Once you finally come to terms with your workaholism, several things start to happen. 

You liberate yourself from the crippling guilt of people pleasing and approval seeking. Instead of convincing yourself that you will take care of your own needs tomorrow, you can actually take time for yourself. Because you’re not too scared to stop. You slow down and let people back into your life. 

Instead of forcing family and friends to rearrange their time spent with you around your work, you can actually be there for them. Because you’re not afraid to give up work for a moment and allow yourself the connection you need. You give yourself permission to live in the natural joy of your highest nature. 

Instead of trying to control everybody and everything, you trust the natural flow your experiences. Because you have surrendered your sense of drama and authority. You open yourself to a world you were too busy to enjoy before. 

Instead making unreasonable demands on yourself by scheduling far more than you can handle, peace is finally a possibility. Because you know that you don’t have to do all those things for people to love you. You grow truly comfortable with lightness. 

Instead of kindling the fires of heroic achievement at every turn, there is a part of you that’s finally resting. Because you abandoned the illusion that you must always be in the process of accomplishing something worthwhile in order to feel good about yourself. 


How will your life look different when adrenaline seeking loses its hold on you?
