Do you ever look around you and wonder what’s the point? Maybe other people say things to you like ‘it’s alright for you’ or ‘you’ve got it all’ and you feel silenced and unable to say how you really feel. It can feel as though you are not entitled to your feelings and feel judged by the people you want to care about you.
Does it ever feel really hard to put one foot in front of the other and function and do all the things you usually do without even thinking about them? Maybe it feels like you are stuck on a treadmill of work, work, work and any space for downtime is filled with worrying about work, your future, mistakes you have made or how you are going to pay the bills. On top of all that, maybe you have started to feel a bit unwell physically. Maybe you can’t sleep and feel exhausted. Or you might have some unexplained medical symptoms and every time you go to the doctor you feel like you are not being believed. How lonely that experience can be.
Do you ever feel like everyone just gets on your nerves? Especially the people you love. Do you feel like you just want to slam the door shut and be left alone and that everyone who contacts you is irritating or just wants a piece of you? Are you fed up with being nice and understanding and think it would be nice if someone understood you for a change?
Sometimes we all feel a bit jaded by life. Stress can overwhelm us and make us withdraw from life until we recover our focus. Sometimes we can’t seem to find our way back to where we’d like to be and we need help with that. It’s an isolating experience to feel that no one understands us or is able to help us feel better. Counselling and CBT can be very helpful if you feel lost or confused or alone. Please get in touch.
