Many people’s stomachs tighten with anxiety at the thought of reaching out for help from a counselor. Terms like anxiety, addiction therapy, couples counseling, mental health disorders, psychiatry, or depression can cause fear.
Sometimes, the discomfort comes because people would rather pretend that life’s difficulties do not exist. Denial can cause people to think that if they do not acknowledge hard feelings or troublesome behavior, these problems will resolve on their own. Denial says, this isn’t that bad or it will not affect me, but denial is often wrong.
While denial might feel good in the short-term, life’s problems do not usually resolve themselves without action. Acknowledging and understanding difficult emotions and experiences may be the first step toward a happier, more fulfilled life. As is so often true, what is harder in the short term is better in the long term.
