When It’s Time to Make A Change
When enough is enough and it’s time for a change, the degree of change can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.
People aren’t one-dimensional. We are a product of thoughts, actions and feelings. To effect change, we only need to change one – a thought, a feeling or a behavior. The other two will catch up when they become the best option.
One way people undermine their capacity for change is by trying to change too much all at once. It just gets too hard. When things get too hard, the old and familiar send out their siren’s song, persuading us back to old habits with astounding ease. It’s just the way it is. The more willpower that’s needed, the quicker it will be spent. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
But there is another way.
Depending on the circumstances, it’s likely that there will be one aspect – a thought, a feeling, or a behavior – that will be easier and more amenable to change. Choose that one and change will happen.
If you don’t want to be the person you were this time last year, or last week or five minutes ago then don’t be.
You've taken an important step in the journey to healing by deciding to seek therapeutic services. Once more people start to prioritize emotional well being, we will live in a better world.
People in relationships seek counseling for any number of reasons, from power struggles and communication problems to sexual dissatisfaction and infidelity.
