It can feel exciting to get a ‘new toy’, whatever that ‘toy’ may be for you. Maybe it’s a new car that you just can’t stop admiring or a new gadget that you can’t put down. All these new things can help to break the monotony that can creep into our lives unnoticed and/or provide a welcome break from feelings of stress or anxiety. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It can become problematic, however, when we can’t enjoy or value what we have because we are worried about what we don’t have or what we want next.
Have you noticed that you are constantly looking for the next thing to make yourself feel ok? Are you finding it hard to sit with your feelings or find a way to live in a fulfilling way? If you feel that you could benefit from some help with figuring out how you would like your life to be, maybe therapy could help.
