A Peaceful Life...
... is what most of us are striving for. We want to be rid of the stress of daily life and create our own unique way of being in the world. In order to tap into this innate inner peace, we must deal with our feelings and the coping mechanisms that haven't worked for us.
Stress, anxiety and maladaptive fears are among the most common mental health issues in the United States. You are not alone. One in three Americans will develop some form of anxiety disorder during their lives. But anxiety is manageable and can be treated very effectively.
Lack of motivation, loneliness or hopelessness are some signs of depression. It often results from the losses we had to endure and that are hard to get over. We need to relieve the parts of us that carry a heavy burden so we can feel joyful again.
Anger and Addictions
Symptoms like chronic resentment, explosive anger and addictive or compulsive tendencies may be rooted in traumatic experiences. Trauma results not only from physical, sexual and verbal abuse. It also may be caused by persistent neglect, betrayal and chronically dysfunctional relationships; by constant criticism or ridicule; by being rejected or left out many times; by pervasively anxious parenting; or by single traumatic events like illness, accidents, violence or the loss of a loved one.
By getting in touch with our core value and restoring faith in ourselves, we can overcome traumatic experiences and tap into the innate calm and peacefulness of the self.
Letting go is one of the most important while most challenging tasks in life. It is possible to learn how to cope with the many losses that we are confronted with, small and large. Relationships depend on our ability to let go off resentment and overly idealistic expectations. Flowing through life without clinging to what has passed enables us to live more fully in the moment.
