“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.” – Abraham Maslow
You feel the heaviness of the world, and often find yourself becoming irritable and withdrawn. You find yourself worrying much of the time, and you’re at a loss as to what to do. Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things, something else happens. You wonder if you’ll ever catch a break. Turning to friends or family members can seem daunting; it’s hard to know who to trust or who will be understanding and encouraging. You want to feel better and wish that you could learn some coping strategies.
Perhaps you’re a parent and your teen is struggling. She no longer wants to talk to you and seems annoyed when you try to engage in any kind of conversation. Your relationship has become challenging and there’s an uncomfortable disconnection that wasn’t there in the past. It seems like you’ve tried everything, and now you feel helpless. You miss the “good old days” when life seemed more carefree and you want your teen to feel more confident and comfortable in reaching out for help.
Imagine what it would be like to worry less so that you can feel better about yourself, be more productive, communicate more openly and effectively, and handle stressful life events as they arise…
