“When you awaken to who and what you are,
the Universe gets it, without a word spoken.”

Do you spend a lot of time feeling guilty about things you’ve said and done? Do such thoughts and feelings cause you to lose sleep or become easily distracted? Are there relationships in your life that can use some help?

As human beings, we all think about and value the quality of our relationships – our past and present relationships with others as well as our relationship with ourselves. And one of the most important things we can learn in life is how to forgive.

When we’re unable to forgive ourselves or others, feelings of worthlessness or bitterness can slowly consume our thoughts, feelings, and spirits, as well as take their toll on our physical health and well-being.

Although we all suffer temporary setbacks and loss, this doesn’t mean we’re meant to live in a perpetual state of anguish or grief. In fact, the setbacks and failures we experience are often the best opportunities we have to learn more about ourselves.

And deeply knowing, accepting, and loving ourselves (feeling comfortable in our own skins) is one of the greatest contributions we can make to our own lives, to the lives of others, and to the world in general.

Many of us have grown up in a culture that emphasizes always trying to solve our own problems. However, when the problems we face become serious enough, we often have no choice but to ask for help.

While you may prefer to seek help from the friends and family members closest to you, their advice and support is rarely an effective substitute for the professional, objective assistance that a trained counselor or therapist can provide. And this is precisely the kind of help you need to recognize the subconscious patterns that cause you to feel stuck and alter your perceptions and behaviors to create the change you seek!

So, whether you’re looking to overcome emotional difficulties such as anxiety or depression, improve your relationships with those that matter most, or simply gain greater insight and awareness of your own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, professional counseling and psychotherapy is the perfect place to learn to forgive and accept ourselves and others, achieve greater personal effectiveness, and create the relationships and life you truly desire.

Every time we interact with someone, we can choose to create an experience of the world as safe, benevolent, and beautiful or as cold, harsh, and frightening. Isn’t it about time you choose to make your life as rich and rewarding as it can possibly be?
