~ You constantly try to please others
~ You feel lonely, even when you are with others.
~ You always feel that people are doing better than you are.
~ You know that sadness isn’t helpful but getting out of it alone isn’t possible.
If these sound true for you, I want you to know that you might feel apprehensive to open up about what you’re really going through, even to family and friends, or you may not know how to put it into words. Therapy provides a non-judgemental space for you to talk freely about what’s bothering you. It’s not selfish to prioritize caring for yourself. You don’t have to always prioritize work or your family’s needs over your own needs.
It’s possible to feel better. Imagine a life where you could…
- Really feel joy.
- Say “no” without feeling bad about it
- Forgive yourself for making mistakes
- Stop comparing yourself to others
- Improve your relationship with yourself and those you choose to share yourself with.
- Stop letting anxiety affect the way you live or make any decisions for you.
