Hoping for a rich, fulfilling, purposeful life, surrounded by family, friends and co-workers, who value you being you?
It may seem beyond your reach when you do not have the tools needed to face one or more of these obstacles: existing with chronic diseases; anxiety; depression; grief and loss; fractured relationships (at home and /or at work); parenting (single, couple, step, or divided households); school issues (including homework allergies and peer relationships); social media management or substance abuse**.**
Facing such obstacles can be unsettling or even down right scary, especially when you feel alone and stuck.
Pain and suffering are a natural part of living. Many times you can work through it and come out better. Yet there are other times, when you struggle and get really stuck in a feedback loop of difficult thoughts and feelings. This commonly leads to trying to escape, avoid, distract, deny or other controlling behaviours in order to relieve the hurt. What happens next? It often result in creating even bigger problems for yourself and those you love. Being stuck feels really yucky!
