Many times, they happen without notice and well before you are ready. You can feel lost, powerless, or stuck. It might feel like you are barely treading water. COVID-19 definitely changed our lives. It takes courage to change. Changing is scary and responsibility feels overwhelming, but it does not have to be. Many times, you could work through those struggles if you just had someone to talk them out with. Someone who would guide you and help you to adjust as you forge your new path.

The anxiety is overwhelming and at times you feel depressed. Sometimes it actually feels like you are reliving the experience. At night you have problems sleeping and if you do go to sleep you might have nightmares. It affects everything about your life. You can’t even focus during the day and you feel like you are always on edge. It was so long ago, you thought you were over it, but now maybe not.

Vulnerability is not easy. It can be really difficult to open up and expose your inner most thoughts and feelings to another person. Shame. Guilt. Frustration. Anxiety. Hopelessness. These are difficult feelings that most people want to run away from. However, when they come faster than we can manage, we begin tripping over these difficult thoughts and feelings and they can damage our ability to function effectively. When this happens, it can be helpful to speak to a counselor who accepts you as you are, and is willing to walk through the trial with you. I am that counselor.
