Have you ever been on a coaching call and suddenly found yourself at a loss for words? It happened to me the other day. There I was, trying to navigate a complex conversation, and just like that, the right words seemed to slip through my fingers. Afterward, I replayed the call in my head over and over, mentally kicking myself for not saying the right thing at the right moment.

I’m the kind of person who obsesses over solving problems; leaving things unresolved just isn’t in my nature. So, naturally, I stewed over this, turning it over in my mind, trying to figure out where I went wrong. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I was being way too hard on myself.

That’s when it hit me: I needed to cut myself some slack. Sure, I might not always find the perfect words in every situation, but what really counts is my intention. My heart is always in the right place, aiming to help, to heal, to guide. And at the end of the day, that’s what really matters.

This was a big moment for me, a reminder that being human means not being perfect. It’s about showing up, doing our best, and staying true to our intentions, even when we stumble over our words.

So, if you’ve ever found yourself beating up over not saying the “right” thing, remember to show yourself a little grace. Having the right intention is more than enough, and it’s what truly makes a difference in the lives of those we aim to help.
