    @Dawn Kieran, there are a million cliches that I could share with you, but I will refrain. I could say that I understand how you feel. But I don't. But I do understand sinking into that abyss and feel that the weight on your chest is so heavy that you are gasping for air. I understand struggle and I understand pain. Each person's experience is different. You are taking brave first steps - putting how you feel into words. @Irene Hackett is right. It is cathartic, and I can tell you from my own experience that it does help. I started writing in 2015. My mom had passed away the year before and I wrote from a broken and sad place. But between writing, exchanging stories, and making sure that I made time a certain number of days a week to get out and walk has brought me to a much happier and healthier place in my life. It isn't easy. And some days, it just plain stinks. But I believe that each day is an opportunity. And each day that we fight the fight, we grow stronger. When my husband was diagnosed with Cancer in 2007, some days felt completely overwhelming. On those days, I tackled life an hour at a time. The point is, do what works for you. Even if it is only 10 minutes a day where you take a walk, meditate, or write, expend that energy for you. I wish you well, Dawn.

    This sounds like a very difficult phase, @Dawn Kieran - and I agree with @Deb Helfrich's wisdom - to take a moment to breathe & write. Writing can be very cathartic. One day at a time. Know that nothing stays the same forever. Stay connected to others. Those calls you are getting for work may be more of a blessing than a hindrance. My husband of 4 years was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer & given only 3 months to live. That was a little over 5 years ago & he is strong and feeling great! After the initial shock of the diagnosis- we decided to give it to God and took one day at a time. Somehow he remained positive despite having a feeding tube for several months, losing his hair and experiencing great great discomfort through the chemo & radiation. As soon as he could he began walking - he walks an average of 5 miles a day. He went back to work as soon as he could even though he did not have to. He just kept on living one day at a time. Wishing you strength and healing -

    So much change and pain, @Dawn Kieran. It is almost impossible to make a decision in those circumstances that is a forward action, not a reaction. Perhaps just breathe into where you are right now. Everything almost never changes at once.

    Focus on your health, as you seem in a good place, with smart priorities. And then, as you are smartly doing. Write about it. Everything. Explaining it to others is sometimes how we best explain things to ourselves.

    Much happened to me this last year out of the blue. I tried to rush to a future and caused problems I did not foresee.

    #4 I can't imagine what that is like, Dawn. I get back pain from sitting all day, and what has helped me is the book and method of Pain Free, by Pete Egoscue. I have a bunch of articles already in the hive, https://www.bebee.com/group/the-egoscue-method.

    Check out https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/the-best-way-to-prevent-and-heal-chronic-pain

    Hi Dawn. We commented on another posts. Incredible story and beautiful results! I had no idea about the diabetes, surgery and resulting pain. For what it's worth, perhaps you and your doctors can check out The Egoscue Method. There is a book called Pain Free. Let me know if you'd like more info.

    @Aurorasa, almost every point you make in your post ‘spoke’ to me as relates to my business and my interactions with weight loss clients.

    You say you often hear “I knew all of that.” I wish I had just $1 for every person who, either when they call for the first time and we have a shorter initial chat or when they come in for a longer consultation and I talk to them about a whole range of health-related/obesity-related issues will say, “Yeah, I know all that” . . . and sometimes in a flippant sort of way as to cut me off.

    Your response is, “So, are you using the knowledge.”

    My response always is, “So, how did knowing it all work out for you, eh? I don’t see that it has.”

    You write, “Most people perceive only things that are new to them as interesting. The danger is that they never dig deep into a topic.”

    In my world, too many overweight and obese people (a) don’t want to stick with any quick-fix diet too long because they can’t, and they move on to something new . . . the next quick-fix, the next scam, the next easy-out, etc., always searching and searching for the ‘magic’ pill or potion and (b) they, too, almost never want to dig into the topic of why they became overweight/obese in the first place.

    There’s more comparisons I can make between what you wrote and my experiences, and you have inspired a topic for me to write about in one of my next blogs (and due credit will be given!). Thank you for the thought-provoking post. I appreciate it.

    Using what we already know is refreshing. It makes us feel somewhat proud that what we learned is useful to us. Also, using what we know repetitively keeps it fresh in our minds. Enlightening post as it brightens that dimming light in my head. 😉

    @Darryl John - Brilliant expression of spiritual growth, particularly shown in your one statement: "It was then that I realised I didn't need this stuff in my life and I could let it go." In the commentary section of the version of Tao Te Ching I have at my bedside, the Jacob Needleman writes: "There is nothing to be added. There is nothing missing in ourselves." Then he adds a wonderful Sufi saying: "When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the Spirit laughs for what it has found." It appears you have found much more depth and richness at the core of what the world may perceive as "less". It is quite freeing to rid our lives of material clutter; my husband and I have recently done so as well and have been quite pleased with the results. Cheers to your awakening. And may you be blessed!

    Well, quite a fantastically winding and uphill road you lead us on, @Nicholas Fester, and a good one, indeed. For we were wounded from our mother's wombs, longingly crying to go back into her mellow heartbeat, the warmth and coziness of her soft voice. Instead, we are pulsated by bright lights, sterile instruments, pokes in the foot for blood samples, and weighed on a cold and frigid scale for others to boast about it. Rah! One concept of the consciousness of a suffering a painful loss goes through a compact yet complex "Five stages of Grief," described in 1969 by Luise L. Hay in her book, On Death and Dying. Now her cause is continued by her co-author and student of several additional books, prodigeé David Kessler, as a life-time search: http://grief.com/the-five-stages-of-grief/ . Is it merely interesting, or is it coincidence that most people question God during these times? Is it not so introspective that all humans question His Ways, His meanings, and grapple with this to no finite completion? Ah. You raise the question in your last touches, leaving us where we all started: in our mother's wombs. We do come to the place of acceptance, all in our own time and in our own ways. I believe these are not meant to be times alone, but times with loved ones to help in the recovery process. Another last thought - without hills, our lives would be flat lands. We would never grow the muscles to climb atop the tallest mountains and receive the vision of what awaited us all along. For all that we have been through makes us who we are. And many never find their real "me." Instead, they wander as reflections of who society expects them to be. So bring it on, as I will make sure that I will be strong. And for me personally, I gain my strength from being a servant of God. That is all over my persona, gained from heaven's door, and it is not a whimper, no, alas, it is loud!

    Either God is omniscient, ever present, and all powerful - and let it happen - *thanks the fuck much. Or God is not capable of intervening in your life because you have free will and the free will of everyone else has wrought your hell - again, not a glowing reference for the God entity idiom. Or - there is no God, and it is just something people have invented because they can't come to terms with the notion that our lives are pointless as ants on a hill, hamsters in cages - merely a passing curiosity of entertainment to dally at for a cosmic 6 seconds of meh. There is no point to be mad at God, when there is no God. - PS, this also negates the Devil in a Ying & Yang kind of realm - and codifies that all the shit in life is merely the shit for the sake of being shitty; no highly ordained purpose to it what so fucking ever. Mankind hates and abhors a vacuum, a nothing - they can't conceive of it; I say it is easy if you try. My question - where were you before you were born? in a religious world of Alpha & Omega for a God with no 'end and no beginning' - wouldn't God already know the points across your life - and how it would carry out ? .... so then what is the point? - other than maybe we were found more entertaining than 'heavenly' television. Religion has made mankind dance like idiots and fools for millennia - again - not another glowing recommendation for the widget.

    John, I really like the wolf analogy in regards to values, very thought provoking. As I have looked back over my own career with an objective eye I was surprised by how few actual Leaders I've worked with, but were instead nothing more than managers. They didn't inspire me, more often than not, I inspired them. Too often it was about getting what they wanted out of their people rather than guiding their people. I guess I never realized just how often leadership was lacking.

    Excellent read John Whitehead with powerful message. There is always a struggle inside us between our two self. Our good 'self wins if we nurture it with love, compassion, empathy and similar other nutrients. And our good 'self' comes out stronger if we get these nutrients right since our childhood when our urge to consume and absorb is more.

    Good buzz but I'm just not sure it's true. Doesn't physical pain cause emotional pain, if it's bad enough or prolonged enough? If we are whole integrated beings, is it right to distinguish between physical and emotional pain? Physical pain can cause people to commit suicide. One might argue that physical pain has an explanation, therefore others will understand. But will they? Both kinds of pain can cause loneliness, isolation, and desperation. Both body and soul do have remarkable healing mechanisms.

    Yes @Emilia M. Ludovino. People can improve their emotional life by becoming aware of something that hurts and starting to do something to heal it sooner.

    #16 @Henri Galvão - the thing is that we sometimes don't see ourselves clearly enough to tap on the really difficult stuff and other times we think we merely have a physical pain but it is entirely an emotional wound, so we don't tap while expressing the actual underlying issues.

    This is a really great article, @Emilia M. Ludovino for those people who still focus solely on their physical health. The mental aspects really do underpin so much of the foundation of our health.

    I do have one point to make, though, which is that being introverted is not caused by negative emotions. In fact, most introverts, who recharge by enjoying alone time to think and process life are overall more likely to be in touch with their emotions and be able to deal with them more appropriately because they are not always focused on outward validation from others.

    #39 @Alan Geller - it could indeed, if one is astute in 'reading' people and knowing when it could add value to the interview.

    #35 @Alan Geller - I like how you have responded with a question! Having interviewed many, many candidates over the years, I know that what a hiring manager wants to hear is everything related to the job and how the candidate is going to use their particular blend of skills, be they soft or be they hard, to get the job done and then some! Unless you have had success in 'wordsmithing' certain life events within the confines of an interview, it may not be the best time to share how much growth you've experienced via personal adversity, such as caretaking for a loved-one suffering with emotional illness or for a husband of 4 years being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, etc., etc. I believe those life circumstances develop us in ways our Careers never can and allow us to bring so much more to the table - but let's face it; not a good thing to include in the reply to interview question "Tell me about yourself".

    Irene, what a wonderful buzz to read on Sunday night, when many have to return to the rat race on Monday morning. I spent 15 years serving corporate America. It took me 12 to realize that if the "I" that was me wasn't enough, they could kiss my lily-white behind. It was personally empowering. They knew what I was capable of accomplishing, which wasn't always reflected in their "numbers." So, after blatantly refusing to follow a directive, I asked asked my new general manager if he wanted two weeks notice or if I should just pack up and and leave on the spot, he made me his personal go-to guy. He knew i was a "fixer." and more than a few things needed fixing. From that day forward, I was only expected to do what he asked me to do, which often aligned with my strengths. It was a very successful partnership and I enjoyed my new position.

We are still parents, but our roles have evolved - different yes, but still an integral part of our core selves. It is important to integrate all of our selves into every endeavor (see recent interview article with @@Kevin Pashuk for how he's done it with success.) In fact, this is what we do here on beBee! No compartmentalization necessary! Although it seems, as things change that we are on a 'new' journey, it is really the same journey with new roads to explore. How fun to be an explorer!

    Beautifully written and such a thought provoking post Irene! I don't know how I missed it last month.
    For myself, as a single parent I haven't really pondered the "I" for her entire life. It was always about her and that was a choice I made joyfully for she was new life, new hope, new beginnings. This year it no longer needs to be about her for she is now discovering her 'I' and it a wondrous thing to watch.

    For myself, I now understand the whole empty-nester dilemma. It's not about the doing for her, it's that in being a parent, especially a single parent because you 're the everything, you can lose all track of the 'I'. The old 'I' no longer fits, it's changed, the world has changed, and so you're on a whole new journey towards discovering this new 'I' that just doesn't seem to have a place...for the moment.

    #24 @Dale Masters - I really appreciate the honesty of your question. I am referring to the "High achiever" in the Corporate setting. A typical scenario is something like this: First one there, last one to leave (That means 7:00 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. with many days a lot more than that!.) ; Managing projects involving high level of communication with various people across the organization from every background and experience level; using the latest and greatest technology to meet very stringent deadlines and budget goals. What kind of projects? How about acquiring companies with 600+ employees, learning all their business priorities and day-to-day procedures, integrating them into your procedure/policy base - having to train the acquired workforce quickly and efficiently with sensitivity in mind. Then, there is the team you manage, coach, mentor - tasks in this area are endless. All of this requires huge amounts of energy and enthusiasm. If you are not at the top of your game - you are OUT. That is a partial explanation, but I think you get the picture! :-)

    At the risk of seeming a fool (which I really don't care about anyway), I must ask :
    What is your definition of a "high achiever"? More specifically, how much must a person accomplish to be in that category?
    I have a good friend who accomplishes so much than when I listen to what she's involved in, I want to lie down in a fetal position (no joke) and stay there until the exhaustion of just imagining all that she does goes away...in fact, I have done just this thing many times.

    #18 Hi @Irene Hackett. Your post reminds me of a discussion I had recently with a mental health practitioner about the concept of what used to be called having "split personalities." Now called dissociation, my argument was that some forms of it seems to be both necessary and normal to function in a diverse world. When we cannot trust one version of ourselves to handle the situation in front of us, it seems we have no choice but to adapt and become someone different.

    We humans are obsessed with winning, but the fact is we could be a winner or a loser at the same time. Life consists of many ups and downs. I've also experienced failures (and don't know anybody who didn't), but never thought of myself as a loser. It's only matter of personal attitude.

    @Cory Galbraith a brilliant post. You have brilliantly shown the way to convert all 'losses' into 'gains'. Most of the time we 'lose' because we stop. On losing, a fear psyche overtakes us and stops us moving further. If we are wise and strong enough to cross this barrier, there is no stop going. I would love to share this post.

    This is such a great article @Cory Galbraith...and soooo true!! Even though it is very difficult to convince yourself of it at the time of death...By that I mean the end of your old life and your "new beginning"...Several years ago I experienced a perfect storm of events...Loss of a job...Loss of a relationship and my home...All wrapped up in one big "twister of fate"...Severe depression followed before my rise from the ashes...But the point is, it can be done...So my best advice to anyone experiencing loss is to allow yourself to grieve...It is NOT a sign weakness...It is a show of great strength to be driven to your knees and manage to rise again...

    Interesting post. You had my interest at Star Wars. Obviously you don't need a light sabre to cut through the fog of burnout. As you say, from time to time we may need your 5Rs to leave the dark side behind. But if we really can't reconstruct, repair or rekindle our thirst for what we are doing, then perhaps we need to jump ship and re-incarnate ourselves? May the force be with you.

However misfortune comes unexpectedly and from unexpected sources at times. My problem came to be when the client wanted to retain me against my wishes of growing to a better tool, technology and project.

    #8 Agreed @Mohammed A. Jawad. And this is precisely the challenge when trying to communicate aspects of human identity in the form of Buzzes, posts, blogs or what is for me, a new way of writing and communicating, The synchronicity of it all is that this is how I am starting my current post. I will reference you by quoting your comment.

    @Sara Jacobovici, great explanation of external vs. internal environment. The two do intertwine, yet leave us with choices. I love how you ended your piece with this quote, "“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

    Viktor E. Frankl This quote bodes very true. Sometimes are responses are not well thought out. I have found when that happens and I was not proud of the type of response I chose, I will re-evaluate myself with hopes of improvement. We are constantly evolving and when we stop evolving, we stop living. Enjoyed this and @Ali Anani's quote was great too!

    It is personally important for me to connect "Where Am I" with two thinkers. Martin Buber's I-Thou relationship, which is one of two basic modes of existence that Buber outlined. http://www.iep.utm.edu/buber/ The other thinker is Erich Fromm with his To Have or To Be? perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzpT1mZf718 When I walk on a planet that is Buber and Fromm based, it totally changes the answer to the question "Where Am I?".

    #3 @Phillip Hubbell! I understand the context of your talk. Actually I'm a freelance consultant and do mostly from my home. My main office is my laptop. But I was talking taking in account many things and kind of jobs. Some jobs, you know, cannot be performed while sitting in home. There are so many, and you know well all about them as you have been a hectic field worker. Thank you very much for your kind response!

    #1 @Qamar Ali Khan, I tend not to be too social, but that's just me. I know there are some who wouldn't thrive without others around, but most of my work over the years has been travel or conference calls or sitting in a cube on a computer. So the home location is perfect for me. That way, when I talk to myself...people around me don't get nervous.

    Nice post @Phillip Hubbell. I worked for years from a home office. The secret is discipline. I set regular hours when I was at 'work'. No interruptions from the family unless there was bleeding involved. The dog slept at my feet, unless he heard an invisible burglar, and I got much work done.

    Even with a 'real job' and a 'real office, with today's technology, the location can be anywhere. I wrote a report today in my 'other office' - a picnic table down by the lake, with my computer tethered wirelessly through my phone. I did however, wear pants when I went there.

    Excellent perspective @Phillip Hubbell! Freelancing is in a speedy development. Work from home is an absolute reality, whether one recognizes it or not. I think many works can be accomplished more easily with a higher quality from home. But for some sort of tasks or jobs, a formal office environment is necessary. Plus, if we restrict ourselves only to home-based work, our social life would get more narrow and self-centered. In my opinion, a balance has to be identified to reap the fruits of the technology, save costs and efforts, and to achieve maximum or optimum output, quality, and efficiency. Do you agree? Thank you for this thought-provoking buzz!
