Do you feel like you are living in a perpetual state of unhappiness? Are you feeling frustrated or angry about the way life is going for you these days? Do you ever think that if you made a few changes you would be a much happier person?
We all want to be happy, but it’s not always easy. Sometimes life, love, family, or career can get in the way. When that happens we can become frustrated or angry, feel depressed or hopeless.
to set up our first meeting.
When you take the time to work on yourself and/or your relationship in therapy, you are making an investment in changing your life. Finding greater happiness through the tools and understanding you gain while working with a therapist can be infinately valuable. Therapy and counseling don’t have to be scary. Just like with most things it’s about the way you look at it. If you are trying to get to a better place in your life,
Call it growing pains, a broken heart, sorrow; no matter what, it is a healthy and normal part of life. The hurt is there for a reason. If you learn to experience it as normal and allow yourself the luxury of living with that hurt you can move through it, stop suffering, and grow stronger.
"Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know"
When you find that you are having a streak of "bad luck" or you feel stuck in a particular part of your life, it is likely that there is a lesson to be learned that you are missing. Take some time to look at what is happening in your world and embrace it. It is easier to learn a lesson when we let it teach us rather than when we resist it. Sometimes our lessons come from pain, sometimes from joy, and sometimes they come from the tiny little nuances of your life, so pay attention. Everyday is about learning something new!
"We are born to love as we are born to die, and between the heartbeats of those two great mysteries lies all the tangled undergrowth of our tiny lives. There is nowhere to go but through."
Love, like death is a part of life. If we can accept these things as part of our experience we can create richer, more full and joyful lives. Live fully in all of your experiences as you cannot escape them. When you love, do it deeply so that when it is time to die you can do that with a full heart.
