Loneliness, boredom, fatigue, anxious thoughts, worries about the future. In this time of social distancing and imposed self-isolation, it's more important than ever to be aware of and connect to a compassionate inner self to validate and support our self worth. What if instead of feelings of acceptance and self-compassion, that inner voice is self-critical, perpetually stuck in self-doubt, and feels deeply anxious most of the time? How then do you connect to the part of yourself that believes in you, in a hopeful future, that accepts your emotional vulnerability without shame or judgment? How to stop the tug-of-war?
You can learn to quiet the internal battle against fear, shame and self-doubt. You can reconnect to the pleasure of spontaneity. You can learn that feelings of isolation do not necessarily become feelings of alienation, neither from self nor others. You can learn how to face uncertainty and change in life with self-compassion and self-acceptance.
Often layers of social and psychological vulnerability stand in the way of self-acceptance. It is okay to adapt or cope with vulnerability by relegating it to parts of ourselves that we don't have to deal with day-to-day. Until it isnt! With therapy you can learn how to stand up to those parts that are ever ready to criticise, judge and shame you.
