Do you feel like you have lost your sense of balance? As life moves on around you, do you sometimes get caught up in the uncomfortable feelings of being overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed? Do you then begin to wonder how everyone else around you seems to somehow have it all put together and yet, you are struggling to keep it all afloat?
Add to that the emotions of becoming irritable and frustrated when something doesn’t go as you had hoped or planned. Afterward, you feel guilty for your response. You scold yourself for not being more patient, for not being better at handling situations that pop up. Your relationship may also be suffering because there is just not enough time to relax or go out and have fun with your partner. You worry that you aren’t fully present with your kids and that you aren’t enjoying their childhood as much as you should.
At the end of the day, you go to bed feeling like you are not enough- not doing enough, not caring enough, not having enough energy, not being a good enough partner or parent.
Maybe this is a new feeling that has come out of a transition in your life- like having another baby, changing jobs, taking care of an elderly parent, ending a relationship, or having a health scare. Even some of the most welcome of changes come with their fair share of challenges.
Or, maybe this is an old feeling that you have carried around for a long time. You tell yourself that this must be what life is supposed to feel like, but you are left feeling exhausted and drained and wondering when things will finally get better.
We want you to know that you are not alone and you don’t have to live this way. Counseling can help you to experience some relief from your stress and start putting together a plan to help you regain control over your anxiety and find a sense of balance in your life again.
