Stress and Anxiety
Stress and Anxiety
Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or worry too much?
- Do you wake up feeling tired?
- Are you short-tempered at home feeling like you have nothing else to give?”
- Do you avoid making plans with friends and family because you don’t know how you’ll feel?
- Do you feel like you aren’t functioning at 100%?
When stress, anxiety, and other emotions become overwhelming, it is easy to feel stuck, unmotivated, and even angry.
You fill many roles to many people, such as spouse, partner, parent, family member, professional, supervisor, employee, friend, volunteer, and advocate. It’s easy to become overwhelmed as you are pulled in all different directions in your multiple roles. Taking time for yourself feels like an unattainable goal. You may fear therapy will be uncomfortable, focus too much on feelings, or expose vulnerabilities.
You may think you will be viewed as weak or failing if you seek help. Many people depend on you for leadership, strength, support, and companionship. You have it together, you persevere, and you will not fail, right? These are normal beliefs for someone who is strong willed, motivated, and value achievement. You have a strong foundation built inside of you already. Being vulnerable is not a sign of weakness. Asking for help is a sign of courage and strength.
Common Concerns About Therapy
What if people find out I am going to therapy and judge me? Seeking therapy is a sign of strength, and is to be commended. You have the ability to be a role model to others who may experience the same struggles as you. Your willingness to seek support could inspire them.
