Are you ready to choose you?

If you’ve been following my posts about values, then you know what I mean when I ask “Are you ready to choose you?”. It means,

“Are you ready to make the necessary changes in your life in order to live in line with your values, and be your authentic self?

I realize that’s a pretty intense question, but it’s an important one, because I’m asking for your commitment.

Are you ready to do the work?

In the Exploring Values worksheet I asked you to write about the thoughts and feelings you have when you think about making the changes necessary to live in line with your values. How we think and feel about certain things is important, because it can shed light on other factors involved in the decision making process. Some of us have unconscious beliefs and feelings that we are unaware of that are affecting our decisions. Exploring thoughts and feelings can start to open up these unexplored areas so that we can better know ourselves.

Sometimes those unexplored areas can be scary or uncomfortable, and we don’t want to go there. If this is the case, then individual therapy would be a great way for you to start to explore these areas in a safe way. The therapists at Silver Lining understand how hard it is to confront uncomfortable feelings, but we are here to support you through the process.
