The Chinese philosopher Confucius once stated, “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Being a human can be hard. We all know this from experience. Our standard repertoire of emotions includes not only joy, excitement, and happiness, but also sadness, anger, and anxiety. We’re constantly responding to other people and external events in the best way we know how.
But sometimes our strategies don’t always serve us well. And sometimes our neurochemistry doesn’t cooperate with our goals. Sadness turns into depression. Anxiety turns into panic attacks. And marital conflict turns into divorce. But humans have an exceptional capacity for change and recovery. We can fall, then get up again. We can figure out better coping strategies. We can find better ways to regulate our emotions. We can make positive changes in our lives. Professional counseling services can help when you’re ready to enhance your mental outlook and functioning.
