Everyone has good times in life, and everyone has bad times. Difficulty, hardship, and challenges are normal parts of being human. People’s Instagram accounts or Facebook profiles might seem picture-perfect, but the truth is that life is always more complicated. When challenges arise, everybody has two basic options for handling them:
- Accept reality and make necessary adjustments.
- Ignore reality and continue as usual.
The second option often tempts people because, in the short term, it is usually easier. Acknowledging difficult realities is painful, and making necessary adjustments is even more painful. It is understandable that many people want to continue with their lives as normal. This strategy, however, comes with a long-term catch. When people ignore their problems and do not address them, they may become stuck in the problem, and the problem may grow worse over time.
The first option may be harder in the short term, but in the long term, accepting reality and making adjustments can lead to countless benefits. And no one has to work through life’s challenges alone. Counselors, life coaches, and therapists are available to offer support and guidance during life’s most difficult trials.
The professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cedar Park understand that life is not always smooth sailing, and we also understand that a little support during hard times can make all the difference. That is why we are here—we love seeing our clients work through a challenge and thrive. And we can help them do this in in-person counseling or online therapy.
What Could Life Look Like?
The good news is that therapy and counseling are not only about working through problems. In many ways, it is not about life’s problems at all. The ultimate goal, actually, is proactively building a healthy, happy life.
What do you dream about for your life? Is there something you want to do or to try but have not because of fear? What could your life look like if these challenges were dealt with and not holding you back?
Therapy often begins with a person who needs help during a specific challenge or for a specific problem. But in the process, many people find improved overall mental health and well-being. In this respect, physical health and mental health are similar. When they care for their bodies by eating well, sleeping enough, and exercising, people regularly experience overall better physical health. A similar dynamic happens in mental health. By attending to their minds and emotions, people often experience overall improved mental health.
Attending to one’s mental health may sound easy, but here is another correlation between physical health and mental health. Many people need a personal trainer, nutritionist, or doctor to help them maintain physical health. Many people also need a counselor, life coach, or therapist to help them achieve and maintain their mental health.
As their mental health improves, many clients at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cedar Park have experienced…
- Reduced anxiety
- More self-esteem
- A greater sense of life-purpose
- Increased ability to focus on their life’s goals
- More sleep
- Alleviated mental health disorders and their symptoms
- Better interpersonal skills
