My Life in Words
Let's talk about issues we all struggle with in our daily lives.
As we welcome the change in weather and longer days it may help with our outlook on life as well. We feel better and more energized. Many times the change in weather helps us with our mental health. Our thoughts become more clear, and we are able to process our challenges. But just like life it may be short term wins. In therapy we see a therapist, we are in crisis from a relationship, family issues, work or financial strains. We see the light, feel better and think all is good after a few therapy sessions. We stop going until the grey sky's appear again and another crisis looms. Therapy and mental health are like the weather. Some days are bright and sunny, others are cloudy and grey. In order to maintain a balance, ongoing therapy helps us to ride out the good days and bad days. When in crisis our therapist can get us out of the storm. The sun comes out and this is the time to work on what matters most in our life, so we can manage the crisis, make them shorter and more manageable. Seeing your therapist weekly or biweekly can assist you in consistent brighter days and less stormy times in your life. Trust the process.
