As incredible as life is, it is not without its challenges. While some of those challenges are beyond our control, many are the outcome of the path we chose.
We all make bad choices and pursue wrong avenues. We all find ourselves in unfulfilling relationships and lack luster careers. At one point or another, we are all unkind to ourselves. Our thoughts take us to negative places, where depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed take over. Usually people seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing it alone.
Its one of those things that we resist, convinced that we can work it out ourselves. Most of the times we do work it out, but often we accrue baggage along the way, forming habits and patterns that over time can lead us to places of dissatisfaction and unhappiness. Deciding to seek out therapy is not easy. There could be fear, apprehension, uncertainty and maybe even a little hope, that this may be the right place to help you in figuring it all out. Whether its relationship related issues, or more individual issues motivating you, therapy can help.
It is a chunk of weekly time solely focused on you. Whether you use that time to let off steam about the pressures of the job and life or use it to examine your choices and behaviors, this time spent on you is an investment. Therapy can be life altering in helping you get what you want. It is a process and takes time, but with motivation and determination to fix what isn’t working, usually comes positive change.
