Many of life’s experiences are specific to women, and while some can be immensely rewarding, others can be incredibly difficult. Processing and coping with these challenges yourself is often possible, but usually are very difficult. Plus, a whole half of the population can’t relate or understand many of the experiences and challenges that are unique to women…even though they may try! Recent studies show that 1 out of 8 women will experience depression during their lifetime, but depression is only one issue among many that may challenge a woman during her lifetime. The following list is just a brief glimpse of the issues a woman may find herself facing at some point in her life:
- Low Self Esteem
- Post-Partum Depression
- “Empty Nest” issues
- Domestic Violence or Abuse
- PTSD related to Past Abuse or Sexual Assault
- Eating Disorders
Most of these issues are very personal, and can also be very painful and frightening. Frequently, they bring with them a deep sense of shame and the feeling that nobody else understands. You may find yourself struggling with the decision to bring them to light, especially if that means seeking professional help from a licensed Roanoke counselor. Well-meaning family and friends may try to help, but they probably misunderstand and say things like, “You just have to get over it and move on.” During these times, it is absolutely vital to have someone to listen, validate your concerns, and support you – someone who understands what you’re facing.
