The here-and-now experience is essential in being present; imagination manifests within new experiences.
Counselor in Seattle, WA
Giving yourself permission to explore who you are opens the door to new possibilities and gives you the freedom to embark on the closest version of life you’ve always imagined. You can never be for certain as to which way your life will go, but you can control how you live your life. Therapy can help guide you into the spaces you imagine yourself being, as well as help you to make sense of what it is you want to do; even when you’re unsure of what you want to do with your life.
Do you ever feel like you suppress your authenticity out of the fear of being vulnerable? Are you having trouble finding your voice? Do you feel that what you had to say wasn’t of any value? Anxiety arrives as a signal and has purpose within our lives. The more that we avoid something the more anxiety provoking it becomes; when you become more attentive to how you feel and what is causing you to become anxious you develop a heightened sense of awareness for yourself and of the world around you.
Do you actively search and question life’s meaning? Does it feel like you are so far behind and you don’t even know where to begin? Therapy can help people overcome feelings of dread and combat experiences in life that contribute to your overall sadness. When we begin to recognize all that life has to offer, we begin to value the part of being lost as part of the process of living.
