Project You! The biggest impediment in your life – yourself. Therapy releases you from self-imposed shackles.
“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.” W.H. Davies
The rush. The mad race. The urgency. The chase. Look around and see. Discontentment and a subtle disquietude envelops many a mind. Because when it is supposed to be resting, it is plotting. How to get ahead of another through fair means or foul. How to race to the top in the shortest time, with as little ability and expertise. Getting rich quick, without effort or skill. With mindsets like the above, an epidemic of anxiety, depression and the often unstated and underrated emotion of jealousy swathes our mental space. Is it a wonder then that we are on the edge of a mental health epidemic?
To prevent yourself from falling off the cliff you will have to review your questionable ideas and learn to build pockets of stillness into your life. Cultivating attitudes of patience and tolerance will help you understand that anything worthwhile takes time. Savoring your uniqueness and learning not to compare, being able to thrive than merely exist can be learnt through individual therapy sessions.
