Your Work

“Our work is to make ourselves visible in the world. This is the soul’s individual journey, and the soul would much rather fail at its own life than succeed at someone else’s.”
-David Whyte

We spend an average of 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week, at work.  Culturally this is the expectation but does it work for everyone, or for every stage in your life?  This one size fits all expectation around work life causes many individuals much stress and suffering.  Some people hold a good days work as a reward in itself.  Some hold work as a calling.  Some hold work as a means to an end.  How do you relate to work and is your relationship to your work life working for you?

 

  • What is your relationship to work?
  • What were the messages you received about work growing up?
  • How tied is your sense of yourself to your work?
  • How does your work impact your partnership, your family, and your well being?

NYC Therapist, located in Midtown, NYC

Therapy can be a place to face your dissatisfaction or stress related to work in ways that can reshape the way you invest in and engage with your livelihood. The way we value or don’t value ourselves or our time often gets directly mirrored back to us in our work life.  How to set meaningful boundaries around work that allow us to be successful professionally, interpersonally, and financially are important avenues of exploration in therapy.  How we show up at work, what role we play in an organization, what grievances we carry, are often rooted in our personal history, and our experience in our family of origin.

 

Often times when we first enter the work world we can find ourselves working for someone who has a strong quality resembling one of our parents, or an organization that feels like a dysfunctional family.  It’s a phenomena that reveals how we can be unconsciously attracted to that which is familiar, even if its not what we want, or an environment in which we can not be our best selves.

 

Therapy can provide the insight to connect our inner world to our outer world in a way that can open up new professional possibilities and/or callings that are closer to our heart’s desire.  It can be the place to sort through why it feels impossible to ask for a raise.  It can also be the place to risk asking is this really the work I want to be doing and the environment I wish to be doing it in.  Often in therapy, we wake up to what we truly long to do with our days and we face one fear or obstacle at a time that may be standing in our way.

Let your work become not just a job, but your livelihood, or a meaningful step on your journey towards the work you want to be a part of.

By entering into a true conversation with what brought you to where you are now and why it may not be what you imagined or all that you wish for you are on your way towards more rewarding work.

We are the architects of our lives and these days there is limitless choice with regards to what work we can do in the world, a gift that can also be overwhelming.  Your relationship to your work can be a creative, dynamic one without sacrificing your financial stability. Given how much time and energy you invest into work, it is an important topic of focus in therapy.
