Do you feel lonely?
Maybe you are surrounded by a group of supportive and friendly people, but because you do not want to upset them, you smile and when asked, always answer “I am not too bad, thank you…”
The mask that you wear every day almost rooted to your face, and it is increasingly difficult to take it off. When you look in the mirror, you see someone who becomes a stranger to you more and more. There is no longer room for sympathy, understanding and compassion. In exchange, you feel an escalation of anger, frustration and guilt; you are struggling with pain, both emotional and physical. You notice that your body begins to fail.
You’re trying to relieve the pain and forget about it, reaching more often for a cigarette, alcohol, and perhaps even drugs. An innocent weakness changing into a strong habit. You do not eat healthily; you have problems falling asleep. You wake up in the morning feeling depressed.
Unwanted memories and images occupy your head. In relations with other people, you become less patient and more unpleasant. To trust your credibility becomes a dangerous gamble. You start to think about ultimate solutions. The suicidal thoughts appear frequently and form an indispensable part of your existence.
How terribly difficult it is at times to share what you feel…
You are afraid to speak to your husband, wife, partner, a close friend. You prefer them do not hear what you hide in your heart. Perhaps you do not want to hurt them; or/and you do not want to be evaluated and judged.
You need understanding, acceptance, compassion and help in managing your emotions and feelings. A natural instinct for survival dwells within you. Therefore, you want to fight for yourself. You want to fight for your life.
Someone once said: hope dies last.
You have decided to seek help. There are a lot of reasons for your emotional state, your psychological disorders. If you voluntarily agreed to obtain the help of a therapist, there is one reason I believe; You give yourself a chance for positive change in your life.
I will listen to you, and together we will explore the directions of our work. I guarantee confidentiality, safety and full involvement in the hearing of what you choose to tell.
