Have you ever wondered if you could benefit from participating in psychotherapy? To assess this you must first answer the question, do you have dysfunction in your life? If your answer is no, you are probably in denial and perhaps a few sessions wouldn’t hurt. If your answer is yes, we must go a bit deeper. Does this impairment block you from having a healthy existence? If so, therapy is a path you should consider. Although, let’s face it most everyone interfaces with and even, on occasion, displays dysfunctional behavior. After all, we are only human.
Human as defined by TheFreeDictionary.com means, “Subject to or indicative of the weaknesses, imperfections, and fragility associated with humans.”
Imperfect we are but if this imperfection manifests a pattern of destruction or it has a hold that you cannot seem to break free of, reach for a professional to help. If your world is stifled by your upbringing, by loss, or by regret, therapy is a place to start. If you are unhappy but you do not understand why, exploration with a therapist can help. If you do not feel anything and you are numb to those who surround you, there is a client-therapist relationship awaiting you.
According to Psychcentral.com, there are many common myths about therapy such as therapy is for individuals with serious issues only, it is for the weak, it’s too expensive and much, much more. The bottom line, excuses hold you back. If you feel you do not have a therapeutic outlet and you are overwhelmed with past, present or future circumstances, reach to a professional therapist.
Therapy will help you overcome shame and guilt. It can shed light into the darkest corners of your psyche to detox negative thoughts and dysfunctional behavior. With hard work you can fill the void in your heart and feel once again. Therapy offers a safe space to explore your lack of or overwhelming feelings and fears in order to put your emotions into words and unblock the toxin holding you back. It is the perfect place to take your life back!
