From the seeds planted yesterday, hope grows. It grows from the conflicts we dealt with not avoided, the courage to look at our problems not from a distance, but face-to-face, and the steps we took to better ourselves instead of trying to deny them and put on a happy face.
It’s not easy to live life with even an ounce of happiness. It’s not easy to grow instead of wither away in self-doubt, negativity and hopelessness. It is especially difficult to seek help when you feel embarrassed or ashamed to do so.
Perhaps you were on your way to recovery, when you had a relapse or you are a therapist who feels burnout or an adult who is being bullied. Sometimes it takes reading how others have survived what you’re going through to know that there is nothing shameful about your experience.
This week’s wrap-up will remind that you’re far from being alone. From tips on how to better deal with adult bullies to facing emotional burnout when you’re a professional therapists, we’re giving you the resources you need to help you grow, minimize shame and discover ways to make positive changes in your life and feel better about yourself.
Change takes time. It can be a long, difficult process. But start reading these now and they’ll be the seeds for that brighter, more hopeful tomorrow.
