Here’s the thing... I’m just kidding I hate it when people say that (and I’m totally guilty of it). We have had a bit of a rough week. I’m not ready to share why yet, because we are still waiting on some answers that might make it all go away anyway.
I do want to say that I am surprising myself with how much better I can deal with the uncertainties in life than even two years ago. ...Especially when I can’t dive into a glass of wine or bag of chips to distract my anxiety because hi day 24 of @whole30.
Sometimes it’s hard to give a really specific answer as to why counseling has helped me so much... but then I have these moments and I realize oh, wow, this is a different Hannah than the one I used to know.
The years of counseling pay off when life gets hard and confusing. It’s difficult to see the change right away... but you guys, not having all the answers isn’t totally freaking me out... and it’s nice. It’s nice to just be here, living in today, actually enjoying it, being okay with the unknown (and trust me it’s a scary unknown.) It’s nice to be able to see a different perspective than just the old fearful one I know all too well.
The only regret I have is not starting counseling sooner. If you’re on the fence or still making excuses I just want to encourage you to start. Life is so much better this way.
