Spinning your wheels? One conflict after another?
Time to make a Foray
For a while you’ve sensed your life could be better. Perhaps others have said it: “You make things so tough on yourself.” You want to be your own best friend, kind, compassionate, practical, balanced. But often you feel scattered and torn. Sometimes angry, scared, alone, and stuck.
Maybe you’ve thought about psychotherapy. But part of you always believed you needed to do it all yourself. Or maybe you had a poor experience. The therapist didn’t’ get where you were. You had a hard time putting your feelings into words. Maybe it was a lack of trust, fear, misunderstanding? Regardless, the fit didn't work.
Connecting is the key. Relationships make our lives worth living. But let’s face it: Relating to others is hard when we have a difficult relationship with our self. Sometimes we beat ourselves up; worse, at times, we lash out at others. Isolation feels bad. Good therapy is about looking inside, gaining new insights, and learning new tools. That makes coping with the world outside so much easier. Yes, growth takes work and it takes emotional courage. But the journey is well worth it.
