No advice needed – Answer No. 52

No advice needed – Answer No. 52

Question 52: What would you tell your 25-year-old self?

My 25-year-old self does not need my advice

What would she do with it anyway? – She would not be able to understand what I was talking about.
What I know today is the result of lived-through experiences. And if I learned one thing from my coaching and training practice it is this:

You can’t teach an experience!

No matter how much I would want to prepare my younger self for what lies ahead of her – it would be simply not possible.
I found that hard to understand when I thought about my answer. Because it implies a certain inevitability of what was happening to me in the next 25 years of my life. No matter what I had known back then, nothing would have made things „better“ in any way.

Except -maybe- for one thing: Having someone in her corner unshakingly every single day.

This is what I wish for her

There is something else I wish I could have been to her throughout the years.

I wish I could have been there for her all along the way. Being at her side. Being a true witness to her life.

I wish I could have had her back at all times. No matter what.

I wish I could have been the person to whom she could have gone to cry without judgment.

I wish I could have been the person for whom she had not to be something else than what she already was.

I wish I could have been the person who always knew what she needed and got it for her.

I wish I could have been the person to tell her to slow down and rest instead of being busy all the time.

I wish I could have been that person.

 

I hope I can be this person now.
