Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and become more resilient.
At Resilience Counseling & Wellness, we help our clients overcome and recover from their experiences of trauma and chronic stress so they can show up more present and authentic in their life.
We totally get it. On most days you feel like you’re trudging through your life feeling completely depleted, filled with anxiety, or just generally unfulfilled, but you’re not sure why. It seems like you’re wading through quicksand and gradually sinking into some type of weird depression or complacency, but to others it looks like you are successful and “happy”.
Keeping up this façade all the time is exhausting, and now that you think about it, you feel like you’ve been chasing someone else’s dream or you’ve somehow managed to fall into a career or marriage that isn’t serving you. According to society and culture, you should be thriving, grateful, and looking forward to the rest of your life. Instead, you’re feeling empty or utterly confused about what you’re feeling or experiencing and not sure how to sort through the never-ending feelings of overwhelm or fear. You may even secretly dread waking up everyday, feeling weighed down and heavy with obligations and meeting other people’s needs or expectations.
Feeling disconnected from yourself and others, you’re also feeling moody and frustrated being in people-pleasing mode most of the time and acting like everything is fine. You’re tired of pretending or trying to hold it together all the time, but you feel lost and don’t know how to change things, where to start, or what to do.
