Louise McDermott MindOverMattersCounseling, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
As we enter the autumn months of 2017, ask yourself this question. Am I afraid to express my TRUE self? Why? Because hiding our imperfections is fruitless and exhausting. Nobody can be everything for everyone. Exceeding other's expectations forces crucial parts of our psyche to go into into hiding. Looking outside to measure our insides can leave us depressed and anxious. How often do we truly recognize and support our own needs and values? Uncovering our authentic selves allows us to accept ourselves "as we are" rather than "who we should be."
I feel it's crucial that people be heard and understood. Through realistic mindsets, people allow themselves to grow. Self-awareness and acceptance aide personal growth. As they say, "pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." What actions can you begin today to reduce your suffering tomorrow? Let's talk.
"That by which we fall is that by which we rise." If that statement resonates with you, then I might be a good fit for you. I feel honored in helping functioning adults increase autonomy and take more accountability for themselves. Most everyone can benefit from self-examination with guidance.
