More About Me.
I've been a remote worker for more than 15 years. I lived in Italy, Belgium, Australia and Spain before landing back in Belgium.
Mine is the story of a guy who wanted to belong to a research team that he could call family.
I longed for stability, namely a set of immutable conditions. Stability was my comfort zone. My approach to whatever choice I made aimed to create the stability that never came and that was impossible to obtain since life constantly evolves and changes.
I spent so much energy trying to create a utopian lifestyle! So much so, that I had a severe burnout and depression.
What helped me was my curiosity! I started my inner journey when I started my PhD in neuroscience and I deepened it to deal with an overwhelming feeling of meaninglessness.
I learnt that I was avoiding processing my painful experiences. When I studied to become a certified life coach, I realized how much being able to look straight into the eyes of the pain could make me (us) free.
Now, I look at life with different eyes: I know that balance needs to be nurtured on a daily basis. It’s a dynamic, ever evolving state of mind. I went through a lot and I realized that processing pain is so powerful that everybody should be able to experience it.
It enables a person to be more fulfilled, to experience a deeper sense of belonging and to gather the courage to do whatever she wants to do and be whoever she wants to be.
