FAVOR Greenville Coaches
First We Have a Few Thing to Get Across!
FAVOR Greenville Coaches believe that:
- You already have the answers to your problems within you.
- It should be our job to help you uncover these answers.
- You are a valued person.
- You are NOT a liar, cheater and a thief.
- Some of these things you may have done, but that is not who you are.
- You are in recovery if you say you are in recovery and no one has to approve your membership.
- You are a valuable human being.
If You Are Struggling
If you are struggling with a co-occurring disorder such as depression you need to find people who support recovery from mental health JUST AS MUCH as recovery from substance use disorder.
Find helpful people who understand the whole person. Helpful people can be found in a wide variety of places.
Therapist, sponsors, coaches, friends, mentors, co-workers, teachers, people at church, family.
How Much They Care
The most important quality of an effective and supportive person is NOT THEIR KNOWLEDGE or the credentials they hold. The most important quality of a supportive person is how much they care. And they must be genuine.
They need to be honest with themselves and honest with you. It is very hard to get what you need from a phony person. And there are many phony people wandering about in today’s world.
Helpful people are healthy themselves and they are constantly looking to grow.
It’s very hard to help others if you are stagnant.
When you are in the presence of a helpful person you usually feel lifted up.
You feel better about yourself after the interaction. Not worse about yourself.
They do not preach to you or lecture you or talk down to you.
Helpful People Listen
More importantly, helpful people listen.
They listen to learn they do not listen to answer. They are genuinely curious and interested in your world.
There are 2 types of people in this world.
The first type is the person who walks into a room and everyone is happy. The other type is the person who walks out of a room and everyone is happy. Find people who fall into group 2….
If you are in the helping professions and you do not fall into group 2…you may want to rethink your profession. There is no room for miserable human service workers…
Final Note From Rich
You are worthy of a life worth living and there is no one way to get there. You can figure it out but it may be easier with some guidance along the way. FAVOR Greenville Coaches, Michelle Handler and Tricia Lawdahl both stand ready to assist and help you on your journey!
