finding meaning and purpose
Social expectations, pressure from friends and family, living with the constant belief that we “should” be doing this or that when our hearts aren’t in it. Living out of alignment can contribute to feelings of anxiety and depression. Conversations designed to help us understand our true purpose, and then building a life that is in alignment with our values, can help us feel more at ease in our day to day lives.
Life can be hard sometimes. Really hard. When we have little control over the circumstances that create stress, we can often benefit from learning skills and strategies to help manage our stress. But learning them isn’t enough. We need to commit to practicing these strategies regularly so that we can implement them when we need them. Are you ready to make this commitment to yourself?
We don’t always think of our past experiences as having an impact on our present. Sometimes we’d rather “keep the past in the past” and feel tempted to push those memories down. That can be a valid way to cope with difficult emotions – we do what we need to do to survive and function! But eventually the stuff needs to come out and those emotions need to be worked through so that we can really let it go and move forward with our lives.
