Hi, I'm Helena

“Sometimes the hardest conversations we have are with ourselves. I didn’t want to struggle so much in those conversations anymore.”

I have a lot going for me. There are the things I’ve done and there are the things I haven’t, but have the potential. And it’s all really good. Really good.

But I don't always feel that way.

I love the conversations I have with other people — to listen and to be helpful and supportive as a friend, a colleague, a confidant. But when it comes to carving that time out for myself, for having those supportive, helpful conversations with myself… that’s where I’ve struggled. My MasterCom journey, therefore, always wasn’t so easy, but…

one of the biggest things I appreciated about my experience was the space to fully articulate what I was thinking and feeling.

And I didn’t have to do it alone. I knew exactly who was on the other side of those emails. Also, even though they were technically letters to someone else, they were, even moreso, letters to myself.

They helped me develop the ability to have more of those conversations with myself,

to develop confidence and the belief that I could continue to have these conversations regularly, on my own. And I got in the practice of being kinder to myself. The Bounce Conversations were great for that too. For realizing that I was making assumptions in some cases, that were not true.

It's funny, communication, we often think about it as this thing we do with other people.

And, I think of myself as quite a good communicator with others.

It was not always easy to face myself for each day of MasterCom. And while I felt the progress over the course of the month, I knew I needed a little something extra. We devised a plan, a system to keep me accountable to myself.

Today, the system is still not perfect, but I’ve seen the progress, I feel the progress, and I’m leaps and bounds beyond where I was 6 months ago.
