Mental health is somewhat subjective. For me, it is feeling peaceful, even when life gets tough. It takes purposeful and active thinking and behavior to achieve health. I never realized how powerful our thinking is until I became desperate to overcome anxiety and depression earlier in life. I trusted that most of my woes were outside myself and therefore futile. Once I took a different course, I was relieved to discover that we have a great deal of power to change what we don't like, and when we can't, I find we still have options! That's exciting!
It takes active involvement to make change, and if you need counseling support to help guide that change, give me a call.
