Life is a balancing act isn’t it? We can often put our own needs to one side as we focus our care and attention on the needs of others.
It’s easy in today’s busy world to be swept up into always thinking ahead about what needs ‘doing’ and for who. Working hard, pleasing others, trying harder or staying strong, these are all ways we learn to 'survive' or at least keep going.
Then there's the all too familiar fear of upsetting others, or even FOMO (the fear of missing out) which means we end up saying 'yes' to things rather than put our need for rest and self-care as a priority.
However, if we don't find an outlet for ourselves, where we can attend to our emotional needs, some parts of our life will begin to suffer, like our mental health, physical health, work & relationships.
Perhaps that's why you are here, because some aspect of your life is beginning to suffer. You might be feeling stressed or overwhelmed and just need to offload then therapy by phone or online could be just what you need to redress the balance.
