You are sitting there at your desk trying to concentrate on what a client is saying but your relationship keeps popping up in your head. The arguments, how shitty you feel, how sad you are about how things are, the frustration that he isn’t willing to work through it, the uncertainty of what to do next, the desperation to fix it.
You realise you’ve stopped listening to your client, quickly you smile and nod and focus on them.
Slowly the thoughts come creeping in again. You start feeling upset and angry about your relationship, but you try to shake it off, this isn’t the time to think about this stuff.
You keep smiling, because that shows you are ok, right? Even though inside your heart is breaking. You aren’t happy. You just want to spend the week lying in bed, feeling miserable, crying, watching feel good movies, and the occasional horror movie.
You are starting to get worried that your client is noticing you keep drifting off. You put all your effort into listening to them and being fully present in your meeting. You hate not being fully present for your client, but your mind keeps drifting.
Finally the session is over and you hope that your client didn’t notice you were off. You’re exhausted from the constant fighting between drifting into your thoughts and listening to your client.
You try to get other work done, but you sit staring at your computer. You are going through the last few months, all the things that went wrong, all the things you could’ve done differently, how you wish things were.
30 minutes passes, an hour passes. You aren’t getting any work done. You feel rubbish. You hate yourself that you are allowing him to stop you working, especially when you know he is getting on with his day without a second thought about you.
You decide that today is just not happening. You go home early via the long route, so you can walk through the park, clear your head and enjoy nature, before you have to face being at home.
How much of this resonated with you? How often are you finding yourself in this situation?
When our romantic relationship is struggling it affects everything in our lives, including our business. It affects your ability to do your work, it affects the foods you eat, the exercise you do and how well you sleep, which in turn will affect your ability to do your job. It affects your focus and motivation.
If this is becoming more and more regular for you, then it is time to do something about it. Nothing changes unless you decide something will change and take action.
