“I just want to be happy.” “I just want to feel like myself again.” I hear those words all the time. I’ve even said them myself. While those are broad statements, they really articulate how so many women just want to attain the simple and much-deserved feeling of happiness.
Depression is rude. Anxiety is harsh. They barge their way into our lives uninvited, and come in an array of shapes and sizes, presenting themselves in varying degrees—none of them good. Some people can’t get out of bed. Others can function like they always do, but things just feel cloudy for no apparent reason. Some are irritable. Others find it difficult to stop worrying.
No matter where you feel like you might fall on this spectrum, I can tell you this—therapy can help.
What would it mean to you to live your life with less worry and fear? To be able to be more present with your loved ones and enjoy your time spent together versus having these interactions clouded by anxiety.
