Our relationship with ourselves is the longest and most important one that we have. If we can’t love ourselves, how are we going to love anybody else?
Of course, at times this can be much easier said than done. Sometimes our self-esteem or self-confidence can get knocked, or we can spend too much time concentrating on other people and other things and not make time to nurture our relationship with ourselves.
If we don’t deal with the pressures on ourselves, it can make a massive impact on our mental health and how we show up in our relationships.
Yes, learning to love our beautifully imperfect selves can take time, practice and perhaps even some therapy but the positive impact that can have on our relationships and overall wellbeing is huge.
It is time to come get some support if you are experiencing any of the following;
- If you find yourself struggling to shake off low mood
- If you find yourself starting to notice anxiety that you can’t seem to let go off
- If you are demotivated or struggling to find meaning in life
- If you are noticing that you are not being kind to yourself
Counseling is an effective intervention that can help you to value yourself, be kind to yourself and get to a place where you can embrace both your strengths and your weaknesses, so you can be who you want to be rather than who others expect you to be.
