From the time we are born, we are gradually learning and conceptualizing how things around us work. We gain insight into how to be and how to get our needs met based on our interactions with our caregivers and the world around us. This imprints on us "a way to be." However, sometimes that way doesn't always work for us. It brings us pain, discomfort, and frustration. Counseling is a strategy for understanding what was imprinted on us and gives you the power to learn a different way. As adults, we have a choice. We are no longer dependent on others to meet our needs. We can choose our own path and determine to ourselves what we want and what is right. The awareness that things might or should be different is the first step. So, what are you waiting for to become what you were truly meant to be?
