My name is Micaela Meloni and I am the mind behind the blog HonestlyMe.
I am a Chef and an Holistic Life and Wellness Coach and a Personal Trainer on training.
If 2 years ago you would have asked me about my thoughts on life coaches, wellness coaches or health coaches, I would have seriously answered that they are just pure bullshit, and only dietitians, nutritionist, psychologist and terapists have a right to exist on this world.
Then I had a baby.
And I had a baby with a person that I respect, but triggers the shit out of me.
I spiraled into horrible feelings of inadequacy, abandonment, unworthiness and suicidal thoughts. Anything he would do would trigger me. Anything my daughter would do would trigger me. I would just think “I am not enough” all day long, “No matter what I do he will never treat me how I deserve to be treated (considering all the energies I am putting in this relationship), “And my daughter will turn on me, prefer him and hate me forever for fucking up her life and head”.
The day I thought that it would be better to kill myself AND her, it was the day I decided to step back and press the pause button.
I quit the relationship, I moved house, cut my hair short, changed my wardrobe, got a tattoo, enrolled to become an Health Coach (because it was too late to enroll at the nutrition undergraduate course at Uni, and I needed immediate action), and I started a course to become a Personal Trainer, all of this to get the fuck out of my head.
Little I knew that becoming a Health Coach is a journey that doesn’t involve just learning about diets and nutrition, but implies you dealing with your own limits, fears, thoughts and triggers, so you have the tools to help others in their own journey.
