If you noticed that a friend was feeling depressed or anxious, you’d probably ask if they were doing okay. You’d want to offer them support—and maybe even suggest that they reach out to a professional.
So why is it that we tend to be so much harder on ourselves when we notice our own mental health faltering? Thoughts of hopelessness or self-consciousness that affect the way you live your life might make you think, why can’t I just be better? Why am I weak?
We all deal with situations that make us feel helpless and out of control. Experiencing those emotions and not knowing how to cope with them does not make you weak — it makes you human. After all, no one gives you an instruction manual on how to deal with the unexpected problems life throws at you.
Fortunately, there is a path forward. The team of mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Brookfield, WI has the knowledge and expertise to help you identify and work through the difficulties you’re facing. Consider calling our office today to schedule your first appointment.
Can Counseling or Therapy Help Me?
If you’ve never been to counseling or therapy, you might feel intimidated — what if your issue can’t be resolved? What if it’s too trivial? What if you can’t change? These “what-ifs” are common and often prevent people from seeking the help they need.
When deciding to pursue counseling or therapy, some people know exactly what problem they’re facing while other people feel that something is off, even if they can’t put a name to it. Talking through your symptoms and situation with a professional can help you gain control over how you’re responding and reacting to your issues. Our providers in Brookfield, WI can support and guide you through this process toward a better life.
