We live in a complex society and era. Our problems greatly differ than those of our ancestors. While our grandmothers and grandfathers fought wars and rebuilt communities, their biggest issues were that of survival and making sure their future generation's life was better than theirs.
Today, society is built and our basic needs are met (in western civilization), which means our worries are channeled into other areas of life. As we've seen this degradation of society, thanks to social media, technology and not having our priorities straight, our emotional and mental health problems increased.
Not only do we have imprints from our parents, and other baggage that needs healed, but now humanity is facing an egoic and spiritual crisis. We've been disconnected from the source and most people do not know how to cope with their problems.
I believe that everyone at some point in their life should hire a therapist, psychologist or counselor. No one is perfect and everyone has fear, baggage, wounds or issues that affect their everyday decision.
Life is a process and even during good times, an old wound may be triggered. If anyone claims that they don't ever need help they are either in denial or obviously to their actions.
The modern dating world is on the brink of destruction. With so many apps and past breakups, men and women are sick of each other and have virtually zero trust for one another. The interpretation of text messages, ghosting and breadcrumbing has everyone on edge and triggering fears and insecurities. Take this on top of childhood wounds, abuse, and being used - people need to process their emotions. Many people who experience horrible situations or breakups become bitter. Their bitterness carries over into the next relationship, which is not fair to the new individual.
So what to do? Hire a therapist.
Are you an addict of some sort? Hire a therapist.
Do you sabotage every healthy relationship that enters your life? Hire a therapist.
Do you live in fear or in anger everyday? Hire a therapist?
Do you reach out to drugs, sex and alcohol to cope with your emotions? Hire a therapist.
No one but you can change and overcome your obstacles. Society will always be messed up and other people will try to take us down. It is up to us to take charge with our lives and find contentment and satisfaction within and with what we have.
