My Story & ‘Finding The Balance’

Around april 2018 I was at the lowest point in my life. My best friend just passed away, I hated my job, my relationship was nearly dead and I suffered from a huge depression. The people around me told me I had to do something to get my things back together. So I went to my doctor, who prescribed medication and I started seeing a psychologist. The medication started to work quickly and after a few weeks I was slowly coming back to life. The psychologist however couldn’t really seem to find the roots of my problems and inner demons.

Then, around november, a friend referred me to her psychologist and I decided to give it one final go. This was by far the best decision of my life. We clicked from the very first meeting. We had a session every 2 or 3 weeks for about a year. I am thankful to this fantastic woman every single day and will be for the rest of my life. She helped me to really understand myself and analyse the deeper issues and demons that were causing my anxiety and dark feelings. I am not gonna go into all the details, but to make a long story short, I had been busy all my life doing things that other people told me to and not doing what I care about and like myself.

By analysing my own mind and feelings, the answers were coming one by one. I ended my relationship (which made me unhappy), started to look for another job and eliminated bad habits (like alcohol, drugs and smoking). Step by step I was becoming another person. I went from a negative, self-sorry, miserable asshole to a positive, open-minded, happy guy.

And as they say “good things come to you only when you’re not looking for them”, at the start of 2020 I met my girlfriend. Falling back in love and sharing my life with someone lifted me further up.

Then, in april 2021 I finally found a new job. I quit working as a prison guard and started as a supervisor in gardening for a company that helps people with difficulties on the job market. From being surrounded by 4 walls in a very unhealthy environment and working alternating shifts and weekends, I went to working outside in the fresh air with fixed hours and the weekends off.

After a few months, even though I was happy with the work itself, I still felt there was something missing. Then, by accident I fell onto a youtube ad. It was a guy who gave up his job to start his own online business. And it was just then I realised what I was missing in life… It was TIME! Time to do the things you REALLY want to do in life. Spend time with your loved ones, see the world, read books, learn the language you always wanted to speak, …

Yes, I like working outside in nature. But giving up 40 hours every week, working for a boss until I’m like 67? That’s not what I want to do with my life. I want to be able to work on my own and choose my own hours. So I made the second best decision of my life: I signed in on the platform from the youtube-ad. They help to find your true passion in life and how to build a business around it. So my passion is “Finding the Balance”. The balance in mind, body and soul. Or in Latin: Mens sana in corpore sano. I want to help people in finding their balance!
