"Loneliness is considered an epidemic. It can make people feel more affected by, and take loved ones' and coworkers' behaviors and opinions, more personally. Focusing on others' imagined thoughts about you can be a problem when it starts to replace your own internal guidance system. Especially if you: Tend to be hypercritical of yourself Hold higher standards for yourself than others, but often feel disappointed by them Regularly find yourself in unhealthy relationships Excel at "helping" others reach goals but feel lost when it comes to your own? Feel stuck, especially if you are single? Struggle with self-esteem? Anxiety? Acknowledgement of your successes?"

"Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

"Do you ever find that the more you try to get rid of painful emotions, the more overwhelmed you feel? Life can sometimes feel like a straw finger puzzle: the more you pull, the tighter the grip. This is partly because life is challenging. It is also because in times of stress, we are wired to protect ourselves by focusing on potential dangers. Although adaptive for some situations, this wiring can become a closed feedback loop: the harder you try, the more you see only problems; and the more problems you see, the more you lose sight of the strengths and resources that facilitate change."
