Do you feel comfortable with men?
When I was younger, I was not.
To tell the truth, when I was little, I was already very shy with boys.
I grew up in a family where there were no boys – we were 3 sisters. So when I was young, I mostly saw boys at school – it was fun to play tag or hide-and-seek with them on the playground – but other than that, I barely spoke to them – we didn’t have much in common (I loved playing with my dolls – and that wasn’t something they liked very much).
Then, when I was 15, my parents decided to send me to a private school for girls… I spent 3 years there… exclusively surrounded by girls, in the center of Paris (I lived near Paris with my family). During that time, I kind of lost contact with boys… they were no longer part of my daily life. And I started to feel a bit strange around them… I didn’t know how to behave around them. The few boys I knew were all changing so fast… their bodies, their voices… And so did I. I remember feeling fat, ugly, I didn’t like the image I saw in the mirror… I constantly doubted myself, I was afraid of the negative comments I sometimes received (we all know that teenagers can be pretty mean at that age).
Teenage years are tough! And many of us keep those difficult memories imprinted in our bodies for a very long time…too long. That’s why I always work a lot on the physical body with my clients – because releasing these memories is essential if we are to be at peace with ourselves and finally be able to give and receive love.There is no secret… if we are not at peace with ourselves, it is very difficult to be comfortable with men. If we spend our time doubting ourselves or being self-conscious, we are not able to fully enjoy the moment with a man – no matter how wonderful he is.
True transformation begins in our relationship with our bodies, our story and ourselves.There are no shortcuts. If you feel called to do this work, I’d love to be your guide. Here’s what one of my recent clients just wrote to me: “Gabrielle, these months with you have been so powerful in so many ways. For the first time in my life, I know who I am… and more importantly, I finally trust myself. This is absolute gold. When I look back, I see that since I was a child, I doubted myself and distrusted myself, consciously or not. Today, I feel free. And the men feel it… they tell me it’s really nice to spend time with me.”
