DIY Conflict Resolution
Making the Seven Choices and Taking the Five Actions
You're repeating patterns at home and at work, and you don't know why. You seem to leave job after job, only to end up with a boss who seems just like the last one. Your personal partners seem a lot like your boss, who seems a lot like your parent or sibling.
Maybe you're the person sitting in a victims' treatment center waiting room, filling out a form when you realize the list of crimes you've been subjected to is embarrassingly long.
Perhaps you're the person with an enviable resume but who can't find a job or one that pays more than the minimum.
You have conflicts in more areas of your life than you are ready to admit, and it's time to start resolving some of them. But you'd like to do it somewhat privately. At least for now. You know some of your friends and family members have gone through similar things, but that's them. You're supposed to be more capable of handling things. You're the strong one that they come to. You don't want to burden them. Or your friends. You'll tell them about everything after you're back on track.
You don't actually have to go it alone, but I get it. I'm a DIYer, too. So, you can work through this course on your timeline with an enhanced degree of privacy, yet you have access to me for questions and guidance, when you get stuck. Sometimes, it might take coaching or mediation at an additional cost. However, there are a lot of new results you can create on your own--much like any DIY home project. See what you can do on your own, and call in the professional if it gets to be more than you can (or want to) handle.
