How Online Therapy Can Help You Achieve Happiness!

Everyone wants to experience happiness, but for one reason or another, happiness is hard to achieve. Sometimes, it’s situational. There is something in your life preventing you from being happy. Other times, it may be due to depression or another mental disorder, where episodes of depression can bring you down. Sometimes, the cause isn’t known. It could be an unconscious memory or some other trauma that is preventing you from being happy.

One way you can solve the mystery and take steps towards achieving happiness is through therapy. However, you may have a hectic schedule that prevents you from making regular appointments, which are a must if the therapy is to be successful. Other times, you may be too depressed to leave your house or have a disability or situation that prevents you from traveling.

To fix that, you can try online therapy, where you can talk to a therapist remotely, be it at home, on a commute, or in any place with an Internet connection. Here’s how online therapy can benefit you.

For more information please go to this linkhttps://www.betterhelp.com/advice/therapy/

Communicate Using Any Means

The best way to talk to a therapist is to sit down with them and discuss your feelings. However, not everyone communicates that way. Some do not like to talk or have a disability that makes it difficult. One way you can fix this is through online therapy, where you can communicate to a therapist via text. This is also great for when you’re in a place where talking on the phone isn’t ideal. You can do a combination of all as well. Video chat gives you the face-to-face experience, while voice chat is good for when you’re on the move.

Communicate Anywhere, Any Time

 If you’re dealing with an issue while outside the therapist’s office, it can be difficult to reach out to a therapist. Online therapy allows you to talk to a therapist at any time. If you’re having a depression episode, a therapist will be there to talk to you and treat it so you can go back to living.

Being able to communicate at any time allows you therapy if your schedule is all over the place. Unsuccessful therapy can stem from not attending therapy, and online therapy allows you to be more consistent with your hectic lifestyle.

All Styles of Therapy Are Covered

What makes therapy so fascinating is that it comes in many different styles that are effective towards certain types of people. Some people may benefit from cognitive therapy, while others may improve if they go through interpersonal therapy. With an online therapist, these choices are available as well, and you can try one of each or a combination. It’s like medication; you have to find the right one for you.

It Can Be Affordable

 One reason why many people do not get the therapy they need is because of the cost. Therapy is pricey, as most therapists don’t work for free. However, online therapy is more competitive, and thus you may be able to find a therapist that fits your budget.

Also, there are more opportunities for discounts. For example, May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and some sites are offering discounts that celebrate it. See if there are any discounts on the site near you.

These are just a few reasons how online therapy can help you get your happiness back. If you are depressed or dealing with another problem, seeking therapy can be the solution you need. Talk to a therapist today and see what your options are. It may take a while, but you can obtain the happiness that you deserve.

Losing Your Mind & Hope Over All The Violence In The World Today?

It’s a bright sunny morning. You make yourself a hot cup of coffee, grab the newspaper and pick your favorite spot – eager to kick off your day. The first sip of your morning coffee feels like heaven! Then you read the Newspaper and get flooded with the cruelties around the globe. On some days it truly feels like the world is falling apart, it becomes harder to see the possibility of a bright future and a sense of overwhelming helplessness creeps in.

With numerous mediums reporting news round the clock it doesn’t get any easier. We have information readily available at our fingertips, be it our smartphones and television or social media platforms. It has gotten increasingly difficult to not think about what is wrong in the world today than what is right. As human beings, it is our innate need to be curious and spread the word. No doubt being informed about current affairs is extremely important but the overdose of it is what is harmful. Our society today is becoming more angry, violent, aggressive, competitive and greedy. Human beings are committing such heinous crimes, a lot of them are just senseless acts of inhumanity. It is these senseless acts which are the most difficult to fathom.

What do experts have to say?

8 Signs You Are Your Worst Enemy!

Image Courtesy – Unsplash

We think we love ourselves the most, but that is just an appealing idea we want to believe. Only when we take care and nurture our hearts, bodies, and minds is when we are being our true best friend. We have been sabotaging ourselves like no one else and may not even realize it. Look around, because we are a true reflection of our environment and the people in it.

Yes, YOU! are the biggest obstacle for yourself. The villain of this movie called your life.  Tony Robbins who is a renowned life coach says “Most of us have had an enemy or two, but little did you know your biggest enemies are living inside of you — and they’re called saboteurs. Saboteurs are the set of mind patterns that govern your every move. They automatically influence your beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors, and they are steering you in the wrong direction — that is, you’re sabotaging yourself.”

As much we would like to blame the circumstances or people around for our shortcomings, we play a pivotal role in cutting ourselves a bad deal. We present ourselves the greatest challenges and have the sole decision-making power to shape the past, present, and future. All of us experience situations in life which are full of disappointment, frustration, self-depreciating, heartbreak, illness, and failure, but what we learn from it, is what is extremely essential.

Seeking help from mental health professionals is an excellent tool to be mentally healthy and also to understand oneself better. Depending on your need, please seek a psychologist or a therapist.

8 signs of Toxic Relationships! Read Now To Learn How To Deal With Them!

Image Courtesy – Unsplash

It is hard to contest the fact that all of us have been in toxic relationships at some point in our lives. Everyone else can see that we are in an unhealthy relationship except for us. It’s almost comical that we often fail to understand ourselves ! And we are the last to know what is right for us until we get a rude awakening. Don’t we own our mind, heart, body, and emotions? Actually – NO! Sometimes it takes a lifetime of mistakes and blunders to truly understand oneself. Why is it the most difficult thing to do?

A humungous amount of control is given to others and we rely on them to make us feel beautiful, validated, loved, respected and desired. Most of the time we function by basing our life decisions on circumstances or people to change. We place so much importance on getting validation from others that we forget to focus on who we truly are. Validation is extremely important and if it comes from the right source it catapults us into the right direction and improves our life by leaps and bounds. The golden rule to follow is that the world changes from the inside out. Our mind is a universe in itself – the world we create in our head is what will reflect outside.  “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he shall be” ~ James Allen

Relationships are a very big part of our lives – we thrive on them, they make or break us. Life is better when shared. However, sadly, we alone are responsible for having the wrong people in our lives and allowing them to treat us badly. First and foremost, we need to be able to recognize toxic behaviors only then can we eliminate toxicity from our life. We are so mentally and emotionally invested in these dynamics that it makes it that much more difficult to see things clearly.

If you are ever always left feeling worthless or unappreciated please click on the link below to find expert opinions on how you can overcome it. You can seek help from affordable, licensed and qualified mental health professionals who will focus on your mental well being and aid you to live a more wholesome and balanced life!

Key things to understand about Depression!

Image Courtesy- Unsplash

The recent death of Chester Bennington got me thinking – that how many of us truly understand what ‘Depression’ is? How does it feel? There is a huge difference between being ‘Sad’ and being ‘Depressed’. We use the term ‘Depression’ so loosely every time something uneventful happens in our life. Sadness most often has a reason – but sometimes ‘Depression’ – doesn’t! It might be so frustrating and confusing to not be able to pinpoint a reason. If you don’t know the issue how can you fix it? Depression is a dull, gloomy, grey feeling which hangs over your head no matter how much you try to shake it off. Every time someone commits suicide especially a Celebrity, the topic of depression becomes a global issue. I am glad that it creates awareness – we absolutely need that! Although, each one of us should take more responsibility in our everyday lives.

I experienced Depression just once in my life, where I received some unpleasant news about my mother’s health. If someone gave me a million bucks to describe how I was feeling, my words couldn’t do justice to it. It’s a strange feeling – a feeling of being standstill, drowning in a hole where the sounds around you are muffled, everything else is a blur. The worst feeling in the world is waking up in the morning and feeling like there is absolutely nothing to look forward to. You feel absolutely NOTHING. The best food feels tasteless, the funniest moments don’t make you laugh, you are out with your friends but you are just physically present and mentally your mind is in a fog. Some days you feel good and think that “Phew! I am out of this dark place!” but then the feeling of nothingness and hopelessness creeps in slowly and drags you down. It doesn’t announce its arrival. There are no evident physical symptoms but a slow, listless, dull, grey and empty feeling. You try to cry but even tears refuse to corporate and provide you any relief. Can you imagine a life with no hope?

How does Depression occur?

How much should you care what others think of you?

Image Courtesy- Unsplash

We all have two faces. One is our true authentic self, known only to you and your inner circle. The other is for the outside world which is the outcome of our worldview. They together form a wholesome balanced individual. Sometimes the balance goes for a toss and that is when the mayhem begins. When the inner and outer worlds are at war we begin to lose sight of our abilities, potential, strengths and everything becomes clouded. We get further and further away from our true self and let others take over our identity and define us as per their own perspectives.

In my twenties, I thought I was making the smartest decisions. I lived and trodded on different paths with reckless abandon. Meh! I will figure it out. I really didn’t care what people thought of me. At one point, there was so much talk behind my back that I reached the pinnacle of giving a damn. I was never the crowd pleaser or tried to be fake – failed miserably even when I tried. I was a silent introvert, observed everyone, choosing my inner circle carefully. Not that people were dying to get in but I cared two hoots what they wanted. I don’t think I didn’t care out of bravery or because I was supremely confident. I just gave up. I blocked them out before they could reject me I rejected them.

You are not alone! There are excellent mental health professionals who can really help you cope with overwhelming situations. Online therapy is an easy, accessible and confidential way to seek help. Click here to know more  – https://www.betterhelp.com/start/

Does Love Win Over Everything After All?

Image Courtesy-Unsplash

This is a story about love! Love winning over everything! Is it true that “LOVE” is all you need in life? I am uncertain of the answer to that question but this couple’s story might give you a different perspective.

This is a story of Andy and Ana. They requested me to not share their real identity as being anonymous would help them be more transparent. It was more important for them to share their story. If you read further on, you will probably get a better idea why they want to remain anonymous. The names are not real – But their story is real! Their pain is real! Their victory is real! Who knows they might give hope to all the lovers out there who are on the verge of giving up!

Andy is actually my high school buddy. I remember him as a shy, intelligent and decent boy. He was mischievous as far as I recollect but always a good boy. He was the kinda guy who would have a silent crush on a girl for years and yet not say a word.  He was a very bright student as well. He would often get punished at the cost of his friends but always took it very light-heartedly. We never spoke after high school up until now but remained friends on Facebook.

If you are having a tough time coping with the stress in your relationship, couples counseling is the way to go. Click here to explore your options and know more! https://www.regain.us/start/

Heroes Story 1 – The Woman Who Came From Hell and Back !

****Image is for representation purposes only****

This is a story about a rock chick named Catherine. She is one of those few people you meet in life and get instantly impressed with. She has an amazing positive aura, a smile as bright as the sun, pretty eyes and wrinkles around them which give you a sneak peek into her wisdom and strength. She has the most beautiful silver hair neatly tied in a bun. She is almost 65 years old – I know a woman shouldn’t be talking about her age so openly but when I asked her she said she is proud to be still standing at the age of 65 – happy and thankful.

I knew nothing about her story when I met her but still instantly started liking her. She was so easy to talk to. Compassionate and kind, listening to me go on about my life. I never share personal details about my life so easily but found myself telling her things I never usually discuss with people I just meet. She seemed genuinely interested and had a knowing smile on her face – I guess because my problems seemed so minuscule compared to the experiences she had in her life. There I was telling her about my dating life or how I don’t believe love exists anymore. Talking to her about wanting to do more in life but not finding the time. Telling her it is such a pain to grow up and the never ending responsibilities that come with it. She gave me advice which was simple yet effective coming from a real place, full of practicality.

Are you getting the respect you deserve? 12 signs you are being Disrespected!

Does RESPECT mean just being decorated with honorary titles, bowing your head, following the norms, worshipping someone or agreeing with everything someone says because you respect them or they respect you? I feel the word ‘RESPECT’ is extensively abused and the most mechanically applied emotion. People say “I respect you!” at the drop of a hat or expect to be respected without earning it. 

Most often there are signs of disrespect all over the place. Few are glaringly obvious while some are subtle, masked in manipulative behaviors. The subtle signs are difficult to recognize but have a slow and lasting effect. There is a huge difference between fearing and respecting an individual. Fear can be easily instilled but not respect. People often confuse fear with respect although they are as different as chalk and cheese.

Diary of Single Women! Thank You – Not! You Judgmental Bunch !

I think after being a single woman for a while, I am amused, surprised, annoyed, exasperated and very motivated to finally write about this! What am I talking about? I am talking about the way the world perceives us ‘SINGLE WOMEN’. This is not some feminist article or me shouting from the rooftops about equal rights for women. This is about plain practical common sense.

I met a friend of a close relative lately. He must be twice my age. He was being friendly and cracking harmless jokes. He seemed like a decent old guy. I was polite, smiled, answered his questions and that’s all! That truly all it was from my end! I forgot about the entire conversation and moved on with my life.  I think I would have a better memory of an ant crawling on the floor than about the conversation with him. A few days later he started texting and asking me out, commenting on my pictures and automatically assumed I gave him ‘Those Signals’ and that I am attracted to him physically. Whereas I just had a normal respectful conversation with someone who I thought was elder to me. It just blew my mind! What kind of demented antenna did he have to receive such absurd signals?! I wish I could share his picture with you guys so that you could see how bizarre his assumption of just this one conversation was!
