Rightly said by J.K Rowling “It is impossible to live without failing on something until you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.”
Sometimes when we fail at something, it becomes hard to gather the broken pieces of our confidence. As a woman, it becomes even harder to get back on track, as we go through so many harmonical ups and downs, and then something bad happens and those hormones start their own activity, which never supports us emotionally. Hence, just like others, even women need counseling.
Sometimes when we are too much stuck with our daily chores, we stop listening to our minds, spirits, and bodies, and when they give signs that now is the time to think about ourselves, we skip those signs. There are times when not only for your personal well-being you need a therapist but sometimes family counseling is what you need the most. How to nurture change and develop a healthy relationship with them.
Not just this but there are plenty of issues that eventually let the women opt for counseling, scroll down to know what they are:
- Difficulty in Relationships
Have you ever gone the memory lane and thought that the deepest emotional wounds are almost because of relationships? Yes, they are. It has been said that a relationship can hurt you and a relationship can heal you. Therefore, to cope with these imminent wounds, against true intimacy we develop both unconscious and conscious defense tools. But whether in personal therapy or couple or family counseling, we face these rational wounds, it develops the space mandatory to discover these defenses.
- Adjustment Disorders
Normally it has been noticed that transformations are difficult and are above our capability to survive with it alone. Sometimes in the middle of the big change you need someone to talk to about it, the change can be moving to a new city, a breakup, entering into parenthood, a job transition, getting married and the list goes on. Thus, to handle this and make the situation manageable you can opt for therapy sessions. During this time, it can make your life better.
- Depression and Anxiety
Mostly 2 out of 5 women face issues like depression and anxiety but they never understand that on their own. They just have the emptiness and the urge not to talk to anyone, but these symptoms can take a serious turn if ignored. So, it’s always good to get in touch with your therapist and try to overcome your depression and anxiety before it steals away the real you.
- Mood Instability
When it comes to women people think that mood swings are because of hormones but that’s not always the case. Sometimes they find it hard to handle their emotions efficiently. Usually, it has been noticed that one time the mood is all up and the next moment it’s completely low. This can be a symptom of mood disorder and for this, you need counseling, who knows the ways to treat it in an appropriate way.
When instead of opting for a therapist, we choose the easy way to shut the door that welcomes the feelings like peace, gratitude, connection, joy, and love with the help of addictions that numb the feelings. Women are strong enough to face the pain and fight back to shine bright and that’s what a therapist will do. Seeking a therapist doesn’t mean that you are weak, whereas it means that you are strong enough to face the situation and get back your life.
- Disordered Eating
Remember how addiction numbs the pain, similarly, addiction to food does the same. Many women face some level of an eating disorder or do excessive exercise. Both are ways to shut down the feelings and emotions that may cause pain. It has been noticed that the more stress they face, the more abnormal relationship they build with food. But the good part is that when they realize it, they ask for counseling and therapists will develop new ways to handle this situation that won’t hurt or punish the body in the process.
In the process of overcoming the agony of the loss of a loved one, every individual needs support. It takes a certain time to get over it, but when you get in touch with a counselor, they tend to speed up the process. Therapy will develop a space that will slow down and allow the grief to run its course, appreciating the memory of the lost person.
- Personal Growth
Generally, there is no crisis or conflict going on, women seek counseling just for self-awareness and self-growth. This helps them to have a deeper sense of purpose, fulfillment in life, and identity. Therapy or counseling is known as a space where you can explore aspects of yourself that you miss with the busy schedule of life. Rightly said, to find yourself, think for yourself, so when it comes to self-love and self-confidence, get in touch with the therapist to help you know yourself better.
To listen to someone with complete devotion can help the other person in many ways. When we visit a counselor for therapy, we tend to take our heart out and let him/her decide what is going on inside us. It’s not always mandatory that due to relationship problems, family counseling, or any conflict you visit a therapist. Therapy can also help you become a better person completely. When you talk to your therapist, you share every bit of your life with him/her without any worrying of judgment or repercussion. He/she becomes your friend who is there to listen to you and your pain, happiness, or anger. You won’t imagine how drastically it will help in the process of making your life much better. So do visit your therapist when you find a need, there is nothing to be ashamed of.
