Investing in your personal wellbeing and mental health through counseling this year is the most beneficial and lasting gift you can give yourself.
When you decide to see a counselor, you are in effect stating: it is worth it to invest in myself and pursue healing. This is valuable, important work, because I am valuable and important. No matter your season of life or the struggles before or behind you, the partnership of an insightful counselor can be transformative and life changing.
Most of us long to live in healthy, empowering ways in our daily lives; we want to respond to ourselves and others with kindness, and we want to live from a place of love rather than fear. But there are very few practical ways to determine if we are actually growing in wholeness and personal wellbeing. There’s not a to-do list that we can check off at the end of every day. Without help through counseling, the journey to healing and health is one that may take a lifetime of intentionality.
Be the model of self-care that you and your family deserve. By committing to counseling you set a clear step onto the path to wholeness, and find the tools for not only coping with, but thriving in your daily life. Know that the time and effort you expend on your own personal growth will have a profound and positive impact on you and those you love the most.
