If you're like many women, you're kind, loving, honorable, and wise. You work hard everyday taking care of everyone else's needs at home and work. Afterall, women are natural nurturers and healers... but sometimes you don't treat yourself with the same kindness and compassion you show others.
Maybe you think the people in your life don't understand your pain, are dismissive of you, or don't treat you with the love and respect you yearn for and deserve. You may wonder if this has something to do with how you feel about yourself and the expectations you have for yourself.
You may feel like you're "running on empty," on automatic pilot taking care of all of your relationship, family, and work responsibilities, without stopping to take an energizing or joyful moment for yourself to recharge your own battery or to feed your spirit.
It's not uncommon for you to have difficulty winding down at night because of worrying about the day that has passed or stressing about the day to come. You can easily get caught up replaying conversations or interactions with others in your head, second-guessing yourself if you did things "right enough" or "good enough" that day.
Or maybe on really bad days you think about getting the help you need but you tell yourself things like, “I’m not worth it” or “I don't deserve it," which keeps you stuck in a self-defeating rut.
If you're feeling this way, it isn't your fault. You don't have to feel embarrassed or ashamed about asking for help for issues like depression, anxiety, or difficulties with self-esteem.
If any of the following scenarios sound familiar, I want you to know that there is hope, and working with a trained therapist can help in situations like:
Feeling anxious, hopeless, or helplessabout your life or future.
Feeling “not good enough" or “unlovable" based on your past life events, love, or family relationships.
“Stuffing your feelings” by over-sleeping, over-eating, or over-spending to numb your pain.
Excessively worrying which keeps you up at night or results in chronic loss of appetite.
Feeling “voiceless” - too inhibited to speak your mind or to stand up for yourself until you're pushed to the point of anger.
Needing others’ approval, placing their needs before your own, to feel worthy or okay about yourself.
Assuming the worst when it comes to other people's thoughts or opinions about you, either real or imagined.
Avoiding socializing with people when you're too sad or anxious for fear of being judged or stigmatized.
Research has shown that working with a therapist can help boost your spirit and motivate you to move towards living the life you want instead of just staying "stuck" in the same-old cycles.
Therapy can help you in creating:
More calm, ease, and joy in life.
A stronger sense of emotional awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and connections to those around you.
A trusty toolbox of coping skills and life strategies to help you not only manage emotional stress, but also nip oncoming episodes in the bud.
More satisfying and trusting relationships, bringing back your desire for laughter and play.
Greater motivation and success in your career, breaking you free from self-doubt and insecurities.
A kinder and more compassionate relationship with yourself and more self-confidence to cultivate better relationships with others.
You Don't Have to Struggle Alone...
As a busy and successful woman, you have so many roles you play: girlfriend, partner, or wife, mother, sister, daughter, employee, friend... no wonder why you sometimes neglect yourself and your emotional well-being!
It's also very easy to get caught up in the cycle of worrying about outside situations, people, or things that bother you but that you can't control.
What I know for sure is that you do have control over your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. And you don't have to keep living your life like you're unworthy or last on your list.
You're worth the investment of some quality time and energy to feel more calm, emotionally resilient, and satisfied in your relationships. Getting the professional help you need can help you more quickly and effectively work on the things in life you want to change.
Good News! There is Hope... You Can Feel Better About Yourself and Your Future.
You’re a bright and sensitive woman who has achieved success in life through education and career choices. You have the power to change your life to feel more emotionally balanced and happier in your social, love, family, and work relationships.
