Philadelphia Counseling

Counselors at Thriveworks Philadelphia

No matter what your situation is, how desperate things are, or what has happened in your past, you can start living a better life today. That might seem unbelievable right now, but stay with us. Below, we'll explain how you can start leading a healthier and happier life.

We may not know exactly what you are going through right now, but it's a fact that many people today struggle with one or more of these common life problems:

        1) Depression 

It's important to know the difference between depression and sadness. Sadness is a temporary emotion that disappears after a few hours or days. Depression, in contrast, is a long-lasting state of mind that steals life away from the people who suffer from it. It's also a constant drain on the wellbeing of one's family and friends. 

Depression manifests itself through a variety of symptoms, and it can even go unnoticed. Depressed people may constantly feel worthless, tired, guilty, indecisive or agitated. They may have lost interest in activities they used to enjoy. There may be sudden changes in their weight, sleeping patterns and energy levels. They may be unable to concentrate or react to events appropriately.

2) Anxiety 

True anxiety is a state of unrelenting fear, unrest, dread or worry. Anxiety has a number of possible causes. It may be rooted in serious accidents people have experienced or upsetting news they have heard. It may also have physical causes, such as chronic sleep deprivation. It may also be a trait learned from highly nervous parents or peers. Finally, anxiety can stem from one's environment, such as a stressful job or home life. Anxious people find it hard to relax because they are constantly worried about the possibility that disaster may strike at any moment.

3) Low self-esteem

Self-esteem, also known as self-image or self-worth, is defined as a healthy and realistic perception of oneself. Good self-esteem helps people withstand personal attacks and destructive criticism. However, a person with good self-esteem is not arrogant or overly confident.

If someone were to tell you that you're not valuable or significant, would you believe them? If the answer is "yes," you might be suffering from low self-esteem. More often than not, persons with low self-esteem have experienced a great deal of destructive criticism and negative reinforcement (this is sometimes also known as emotional abuse).

These people dislike themselves because they believe they are not good enough. They feel they do not deserve love, respect, attention or trust. People with low self-esteem are plagued by the conviction that they are useless, ugly, clumsy, boring and/or powerless. 

4) Relationship problems and loneliness

Anger, jealousy, infidelity, and dependency are just some of the reasons that many people divorce. However, these causes can all be boiled down to just one root cause, and that is the failure to communicate properly. Although breakthroughs in communication have enabled us to stay connected 24/7, people feel more isolated today than ever before. 

More and more people feel trapped by loneliness, even though they may live in a mega city such as Philadelphia. The problem only gets worse for people who are separated from their support systems because they work long hours or have moved far away.

These very common struggles can have serious, even tragic consequences. So many of us waste our time and potential by hiding these problems from our family, from our friends, and even from ourselves. But the real tragedy is that so many people suffer for years without asking for help, when help is just a phone call away. Get help at Thriveworks Philadelphia today.
