Some Things Never Change…Or Do They??

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, some things never change?

Our symptoms are not the problem.

We often focus on the symptoms and not the issues. As a result, healing or change is superficial.

The symptoms can however be used as signs that lead us to the real issues.

Here are some common symptoms:

  • Problems sleeping
  • Can’t concentrate
  • Loss of temper/blow up easily
  • Crying often
  • Lonely
  • Hard to find motivation
  • Anxious and fearful most of the time

Sometimes it takes time to get to the core issues.

Much like physical medicine, our mental or heart condition can be helped by looking deeper.

Symptoms are just what they sound like: indicators of a problem. Sometimes we need help from someone who will ask the hard questions.

The first step is to be honest with yourself that there is something going on. Some issues are temporary or can be addressed on your own. But in some cases it is good to ask for help. Talking with a trusted friend can help you decide if you need more help.

Don’t be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. We all need it from time to time.
