Breaking Free

Break Free

Do you identify as an extrovert or an introvert? Are you someone who feels deeply or tends to be impulsive? Well, let me tell you, those personality tests may not hold all the answers. Your life experiences play a significant role in shaping who you are, more so than your genetics or birth circumstances. Your personality traits can vary depending on the situation you find yourself in. One moment you may feel introverted, and the next you’re embracing your extroverted side. These labels we place on ourselves can confine us and become excuses for our shortcomings.

It’s important to understand that our personality traits developed as a means of protection throughout our lives. However, there comes a point where they may hinder our growth and hold us back in situations where they are no longer necessary. This is where life coaching can make a difference, helping us break free from these self-imposed limitations. The labels society or experts have given us are not absolute boundaries or imprisonments. They are simply descriptors that have evolved through our unique experiences.

Sometimes, these personality traits were developed as a shield or a way to seek approval. But now, they can become obstacles preventing us from becoming our best selves. For instance, an introvert may have developed their introversion as a defense mechanism against an abusive or condemning environment. It served them at that time, but now it hinders their growth in a new life situation.
