Much anxiety can be understood as intense fluctuation between engagement and avoidance.
When you’re experiencing anxiety or depression, it can seem impossible to escape. Here are a few tips for rebalancing yourself.
When we project, we push the responsibility for our being onto someone else. We do it to avoid suffering. But, in fact, we end up losing touch with reality, and creating more suffering.
Whenever we feel hard done by or in pain, we have a simple choice. We can get stuck in resentment, or we can embark upon a positive action, however small.
We have great intentions, but untamed minds. The art of counselling is to work with honesty and subtlety to harness the mind, and re-engage with the world afresh.
Lack of motivation is a key symptom of depression. Although depression has many causes we can’t control, we can certainly learn to help ourselves.
