I felt unfulfilled and bored in my work and life. And I'd tried almost everything to feel better: looking for new jobs, doing therapy, yoga & meditation, reading TONS of self-help books, doing endless online surveys to figure out who I really was and what I love. Still, I couldn't consistently feel free or satisfied. Instead, I felt trapped waiting for something to change or that next achievement to happen so I would feel better. But I never seemed to feel better. Strangely, my life looked pretty amazing on the outside. It just didn't feel that way inside. There insecurity lurked, I hustled to prove my worth, and I tried to belong so I wouldn't feel so "different."
