Men and Counselling ; Why it is Good for You
Becoming the alpha ,that right there is the goal. Getting things done and doing them excellently. Congratulatory messages and comments flying around for your excellent results from all parties concerned for outdoing yourself at work or that venture you had been taking on. A happy wife ,a happy life and even happier children. People calling you to give speeches about what success or maybe not but you get the picture. All of these can seem like a far fetched dream when the opposite is actually your reality. If that’s your wish you actually have a horse to ride on, counselling.
Everything you know about being a man goes like you can cry, men don’t do that, keep your problems to yourself that’s the real man way until life hands you mixed results with an A for anxiety and S for stress. It’s a good thing someone thought that you needed a safe space to de-stress and made a quiet place where you can just talk about you and cry all you want without making you feel like an idiot. With counselling you are getting a first class ticket to the land of self- awareness so as to be in a position to handle everything.
The more unpacked you are the easier it get’s to decide what needs to get done first. They say a journey of a thousand miles start with a single step , the single step they are talking about here is you being in a great state of mind and then you can now start calling into being whatever else you want . It would be fantastic if nothing like worry existed. The terrible news is that it actually very much exist, counseling helps you know how to manage it and if possible use it to get you where you need to go , suppress it when it threatens to take over. Kill stress and anxiety before they do it to you first.
The way you say things is more important than what you are saying. The aim of counselling is to provide you with the tools to allow you pass whatever message you want without coming out on the wrong side of the divide. That is very much progress. Next move with counselling is they hand you a tool box with the tools you will need to go about life a day at a time. Soon when they see the change and ask you how you got there , you can give them that knowing smile of yours and say counselling. Counselling may not be everything but it can be quite something.
