Ok so here’s a question what gives anyone the right to call themselves a life coach ? I see posts all the time feeling sad, lost , can’t lose weight or find a job etc… then you need a life coach to get you back on track. No mother fucker they need meds or a gym and seriously there are no real qualifications to be a life coach one qualification is good listener. If I want a good listener I’ll call my mom or a therapist , look maybe there are “real” life coach’s out there. For the most part a lot of these people have no true life experience, their bored housewives who take seminars to make themselves feel better by listening to someone who’s life is worse then there’s. In my opinion a life coach should have life experiences and made something out of themselves from nothing , bettered themselves. Not some woman who was taken care of by her husband and her worst issue was a thyroid problem lol . I am talking real shit , and how the fuck is a person who’s never been over weight going to help a person who’s over weight by listening to them give their dinner order fucking moron. You can be a good listener and want to make the world a better place guess what this ain’t the fucking miss America pageant. I went from being homeless as a kid, having a drug addict father, rapped not once but three times, was abused by my ex-husband mentally and physically, lost it all and got back up and pushed forward because guess what I didn’t want to be another statistic. It’s bad enough Puerto Rican’s especially in north Philadelphia sometimes get stereotyped and I did not want to live up to that. So I told myself fuck this shit, all of the bad things that happened to me will not be my fucking crutch, these things will not define me oh and I forgot to mention pretty much a single mom and have severe celiacs disease.What more shit could a girl ask for , I went to college, tended bar at a strip club and took care of my daughter. Had one bad relationship after another but when I was in my last bad relationship before I met my Husband , I woke up one morning and said I am not taking anymore shit from anyone. That last relationship I was used to be a mother to his kid , buy the kid clothes, oh and he complained about spending money so if I wanted to go anywhere nice I’d have to pay .Guess what I stopped letting people take advantage of me , got certified to be in quality assurance, married the man of my dreams and the rest was history. I honestly would not change one thing in my past because all of those things are what made me who I am today. A life coach should have my qualifications, REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE……. not a seminar to tell them how to manipulate someone into paying them to tell you shit you already should know. If I piss anyone off not sorry because your mad that the truth hurts, anyone who’s reading this and thought about a life coach remember one very important thing you are your best life coach …..
