COUNSELING IS OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY. I HOPE MANY OF YOU WILL READ THIS SO YOU KNOW WHEN COUNSELING IS RIGHT FOR YOU. COUNSELING OR THERAPY, BY A LICENSED COUNSELOR, ESPECIALLY ONE WHO SPECIALIZES WITH YOUR ISSUES IS A GREAT HEALING TOOL. NOW, JUST AS WE HAVE TELEMEDICINE, YOU CAN SPEAK TO A COUNSELOR OVER THE PHONE. I AM A PERSON WHO HAS HAD COUNSELING HOWEVER, AND I CAN SEE WHAT CAN’T BE ACCOMPLISHED OVER A TELEPHONE, BUT IT IS A SECOND ALTERNATIVE VERSES NOT GETTING HELP WHEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.
I WENT THROUGH A DIFFICULT PERIOD IN MY TIME WHEN I FINALLY REALIZED I COULD NOT FIX A SITUATION MYSELF. I WENT THROUGH A DIVORCE, AND BLAMED MYSELF FOR THE DIVORCE AND FAILURE OF IT. WHAT COUNSELING MADE ME REALIZE WITH A PSYCHIATRIST IN MY CASE, WAS FAILURE WASN’T AN OPTION FOR ME. AS A CHILD, I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME. MY MOTHER WAS GREAT BUT MY STEP=FATHER WAS DRINKING AND HE BECAME A DIFFERENT PERSON WHEN HE DRANK. TO FIND THE ROOT OF A PROBLEM IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRULY SOLVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. SOMETIMES, WE SIMPLY CAN’T DO IT OURSELVES. IT WAS CAUSING ME TO GO THROUGH A SERIES OF RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEN THAT DID NOT TREAT ME RIGHT. THE GUILT FROM THE DIVORCE AND THE TRAUMA FOR ME IN CHILDHOOD WITH MY STEP-FATHER, WAS COUPLED TOGETHER CREATING A LACK OF LOVE FOR MYSELF. IT TOOK YEARS TO FIGURE OUT THE INTRICATE DETAILS AND MANY TYPES OF COUNSELING ALONG WITH A PSYCHIATRIST TO FIGURE OUT MY CORE ISSUES. WHEN I FINALLY DID, I WAS ABLE TO ACCEPT THEM. WHEN I ACCEPTED MY ISSUES AND LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF IN SPITE OF THEM, I WASN’T ATTRACTED TO THE SAME TYPE OF MEN.
I ACT AS A MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE WITH NO LICENSE BUT I CAN FEEL AND INTERPRET OTHER’S ISSUES. I AM A GOOD LISTENER. I ALSO HEAR I GIVE GOOD ADVICE. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH THERAPY TO KNOW DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WORKED FOR ME. I ALSO KNOW WHEN ONE’S ISSUES MAY REQUIRE A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL. (SEE OUR WISE ADVICE PAGE. AS A MEMBER OF OUR WRITER’S COMMUNITY, WE GIVE THE SERVICE AS PART OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP.
IF WE DO NOT DEAL WITH OUR UNDERLYING ISSUES, OUR BEHAVIORS ARE OFTEN MISUNDERSTOOD BY OURSELVES. WHEN DO YOU KNOW WHEN A PROBLEM IS BIGGER THAN YOU?
- YOU FIND YOURSELF SUFFERING WITH LONG-TERM DEPRESSION.
- YOU FIND YOURSELF TROUBLED WITH LONG-TERM ANXIETY.
- YOU FIND YOURSELF THINKING THE WORLD MIGHT BE A BETTER PLACE IF YOU WEREN’T IN IT.
- YOU DISENGAGE FROM SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
- YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A PATTERN OF ANY KIND THAT IS SELF-DESTRUCTIVE
- YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED OR YOUR LIFE IS. UNMANAGEABLE.
- YOU FIND TO YOU HAVE LOST INTEREST IN THINGS YOU ONCE ENJOYED.
- YOU FIND IT DIFFICULT TO CONCENTRATE, FOCUS, AND STAY ON TASK FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
- YOU KNOW WHATEVER IS GOING ON WITH YOU, IT IS UNMANAGEABLE.
- YOU SEE THAT POSITIVE CHANGE IS AT A STAGNANT POINT AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHY.
ONE LAST THING I WANT TO MENTION. I KNOW ANKLE MONITORS WITH SENSORS FOR ALCOHOL ARE BECOMING MORE POPULAR EVERYDAY WITH THE ABUSE OF ALCOHOL. THIS IN ITSELF, COULD BE A GOOD THING. I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY TIMES HOWEVER, THAT INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FORCED TO DO SOMETHING WILL DO IT TO AVOID GOING TO JAIL. IF THEY DON’T FIND HELP FOR THE UNDERLYING ISSUES THAT CAUSED THEM TO ABUSE SUBSTANCES TO BEGIN WITH, THEY ALMOST ALWAYS RELAPSE. SINCE ALCOHOL/ANKLE MONITORING WITH A SENSOR IS NEW, THERE ISN’T MUCH EARLY RESEARCH I CAN USE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY. I THINK OVER TIME, IT WILL PROVE TO BE TRUE.
