As humans we have a tendency to put off mental or behavioral disturbances until we feel “we can’t take it anymore” or try something else to avoid or defuse it (including self-destructive and unhealthy behaviors). We then want instant help and results immediately rather than understanding it took time to get to where you are and it will take time to resolve (ie:, commitment to feeling well, following MD orders and increasing healthy outlets for relief and insight). To put your healthy mind and body first is foreign for some and for others superficial appearances such as new clothes, hair color, shoes or high gloss nails, travel/vacations are considered as a temporary fix up. Unfortunately once reality continues you feel the same, stuck. Making the decision to seek counseling can be based up “how bad it is in the moment” and after months, or even years or previous therapy, a person may finally have the courage to want to forgo the same pattern. Time will continue no matter what you do and patterns will be repeated over and over. The brain stores memories, emotions, and sensation, then emotional and physical reactions will be released. This can lead to seeking the courage to finally make the person say I need to break this cycle. As humans we have a tendency to wait aka called denial until something “really bad happens” or “I have no choice” and then we want immediate change. Sound familiar? It takes courage and understanding that processing past and present issues with counseling will relieve your brain, body and soul and break the pattern for good. This leads to true genuine belief “I’m okay now, I really am”.
