Are you looking for nonjudgemental, sex positive, empathetic, and empowering support?
I am here, for you, to provide a listening ear, and a caring space free of judgment and negativity. Sometimes you just need an opportunity of someone offering you an unbiased, open-minded ear should you wish to unburden yourself, vent frustration, or share something you otherwise wouldn't disclose.
SUPPORT AROUND BURNOUT
Are you finding yourself engaging in unhealthy coping strategies (drinking to excess, eating excessive amounts of food: junk or comfort, and/or self medicating)? Are you feeling disillusioned about work & life in general? Are you not turning up for appointments, switching your phone off, or being rude to clients who call? Are you exhausted emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and/or physically? Are you experiencing frustration, cynicism, and/or other negative emotions? This tends to play out in one of two ways: (1.) You’re having more conflicts with other people, such as getting into arguments, or (2.) you withdraw, talking to your friends and family members less. You might find that even when you’re physically there, you’re tuned out. These can all be signs that you are possibly, burned out. This can not only take a toll on you mentally, but also physically, emotionally, & spiritually. To prevent burnout, you need to ensure that you lead a balanced life. Too much work and poor boundaries can take a toll on yourself. It is possible to develop a happy medium where work is not viewed as, so stressful that it takes over your entire life.
SUPPORT WITH FINDING BALANCE IN LIFE
How do you find space in your life and the energy to spend with friends, family, exercise, take a moment for yourself, etc. Unresolved feelings of frustration or anger may lead you to lose your objectivity about work and end up feeling like you simply can’t work anymore. This may possibly be a sign you have fallen out of balance or out of sync with your ownself. Before giving up, step back, and take a look at how (or even if) you are truly balancing your life. *Develop clearly defined boundaries with clients and, if necessary, co-workers. *Work out your priorities and manage your time to reduce unnecessary daily stress. *Have realistic expectations of your self and others. *Take plenty of breaks and do something you enjoy on days off. *Talk to someone you trust about your feelings. *From time to time, look at the big picture. What are your goals? *Challenge negative thinking and self-talk and focus on the positives. *Nurture your emotional self by listening to soothing music, gardening, or following a creative pursuit like writing or art—all are great methods of self expression.
Transition from sex work into the "mainstream" lifestyle, ambition(s), goal(s), and/or career path A transition according to Webster is "a change from one state or condition to another." It's been stated there are four ways someone transitions out of sex work: Reactionary, Gradual Planning, Natural Progression, and "Yo-yo'ing". I agree with the sentiment that when it comes to transitioning/leaving, people need emotional & psychological support. They also need a nonjudgmental relationship and safe environment, to work through & bounce ideas around, so that they can make choices that are right for them.
