With a pain in my stomach, I write to you today. This week I received an email from one of my subscribers that really hurt.
I wish ppl would stop trying to make money off us. If you’ve known this kind of tragedy (losing your only child) you know there are setbacks, depression, loss of job, spouse, etc. It’s so unnecessary. So I’m unsubscribing and marking spam.
It pains me to be misunderstood, my passion to be taken the wrong way.
I do know of setbacks: I have experienced the loss of a child, dealt with trauma from the aftermath of my mother’s suicide, sexual abuse, and burnout. And – most recently – divorce.
This is part of why I’m doing what I’m doing!
I want to be honest with you: This is my passion:
–> to support YOU who are dealing with grief and trauma.
It is my life’s work.
My heart is in my work
It requires investment in my personal as well as professional resources outside of myself. For example:
- costs for book self-publishing: cost for a editor and interior designer,
- costs for my therapeutic work: on-going professional training and memberships,
- everyday business expenses such as: web hosting, book keeping and accounting, membership for the platform that sends you email newsletters.
…just to name a few.
My work is not only born from personal life experience, it is grounded in solid professional training and years of professional experience.
Making money from people’s pain
If you believe, people like me ‘are making money off people in pain’, you’ve got it the wrong way around:
We are not making money off your pain, we are supporting your healing because we are passionate about healing and are earning our living while doing what is our passion.
The subscriber I quoted above did not unsubscribe. I deleted her email address because I do not need to pay to send her stuff she does not want.
Please, if you no longer benefit from the content I provide in my newsletters, unsubscribe through the link at the bottom of the email. No explanation is needed.
And: I’m surprised you’re reading this far.
Much Love ♥️
