When I was 12, all I wanted to do was to help people feel better about themselves. Why? Because I felt so bad about myself.
I remember being depressed at a very early age- maybe 3. Already taking the weight of the world on my shoulders and responsibility for things that were not mine to carry. There was nowhere to put that energy but back inside and it imploded with eating disorders, self-harming and lots of tears and inner blackness for as long back as I can remember.
There were hopeful, wonderful spots, too. Because there is this fairy believer inside of me that sees unicorns and marvels at nature and miracles. But when it came to people primarily, I was sunk- never seemed to get it quite right.
Come to 1995 when my mom died and it leaving such a hole in my being that when I couldn’t stop crying after 6 months, my well-meaning doc put me on 100mg of Zoloft (Sertraline), and that lasted for 18 years.
Finally, I woke up with the help of a coach who initiated my travel on the road of “Don’t believe what you are thinking.” This was brand new to me. I’d ALWAYS taken what I thought seriously. Now I knew something new. Within 9 months I was completely off of Zoloft and into a new way of believing.
I am much more tender and merciful now toward myself. I truly love myself where before I was a vacuous shell of self-loathing. This is what I have to share with you- the road out of feeling bad and the road to feeling better again or for the first time.
I know how to navigate the unseen world of the mind and what to do with its tricks. I know what to appreciate the mind for and what to ignore it for. I know what to do when my mind is going crazy and what to do when it brings me a good feeling.
I am a counselor who gets straight to the point and delivers the loving messages that I feel coming from inspiration rather than mind. Or logic. Or reason. But rather from compassion, grace and mercy. I love sharing what I have learned over Facebook livestreams every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to serve you and for your upliftment, at 8 am ET. www.facebook.com/lorrainepursellma.
We are all innocent. We are all doing our best in the situations we are in.
If you would like a consultation with me, just to explore where you are and what your inner bearings are, please feel free to reply to this email and we can sort out a time to share together.
I want to help people to feel better about themselves. And beyond that, how magnificent they are.
I also love doing these workshops that I’ve been doing for the past 2 years. Each month, a new topic drops in and I give the talk. This is the next one…
