Do you feel that your life is reflecting the sense that one gets, when they are driving in circles? Maybe you feel as if you've lost your way. Perhaps you think that you've done all you can do, and you continue to get the same results. Maybe you've told yourself, "today is going to be the day that I do things differently", but then you find that your efforts end up having the same results as yesterday, one month ago, and even five years ago.
Most of us have the best intentions to make changes in our lives that will positively affect the lives of those around us, but we just don't recognize how to apply the skills needed to cause those changes to take the desired effects. Have you felt depressed, and told yourself, "I'll work on myself tomorrow, but today I just want to sleep?" When "tomorrow" comes, have you found that you feel the same way, and find that you didn't implement any of the changes you told yourself you would do? This is common and you are not alone. However, this unhelpful pattern may now be negatively impacting the life around you, and those you share your life with. Do you find that you don't want to spend as much active time with your loved ones, or visit new places that you previously had a desire to explore?
While there are many reasons for the changes described above, if the changes can be linked to actual depression, then you are going to need support. Although the example I described above is regarding depression, please apply any other difficulty in it's place. For example, while you might not feel depressed, can you think of a traumatic event that directly changed your soul, and therefore changed the way you view and live life? Maybe you have lost your job after 15 years with the company, and are struggling to find a new one? What does this cause for you? Are you more irritable, and find that you are isolating from your partner? Talking to a therapist with or without your partner, might be a great start for getting yourself back on track and in pursuit of what you want to do.
Change...Let's confront that concept. Change is happening all around us. Change happens whether we want it or not. We are ever changing, moving, aging, all while time is passing. Change might appear to be scary if you're confronting change on your own. However, at The Change Companion, you won't be alone. I will not use psychological jargon to try and entice you to give therapy a chance. Your life circumstances have brought you here. You have realized that change must come, if you are to live the life you intended to live.
Let today be the day that you choose to be the best father, the best partner, the best co-worker, the best daughter, the best friend, or the best student, that you can be. Today might be the start of the beginning of a rekindled relationship with your wife. Or, today could be the day, that you start connecting with your child, as you or they may have drifted apart, even though you still live under the same roof. Perhaps, you've wanted to enjoy the sunlight and the breezy air for some time now, but just haven't been able to get out of bed. If you could change anything in your life, what would it be? How would your life look at this moment if it were just as you wanted?
If you automatically answered, "Well my wife would do...", "My son would no longer..." or "They wouldn't have..." then you are not necessarily considering your role, in your changed life. What would be different about you? What would be different about how you treated others? What would be different about your outlook on life? What new hopes and dreams would you be pursuing? How would you be treating your husband? What dysfunctional circular pattern will you put an end to? How truthful would you be with your partner? In which ways would you demonstrate your love towards others? Don't give up on living the life you've always wanted. The time for change is now. Call today.
