Feeling alone, like no one understands what you are going through? Does life seem to not make any sense?
Working our way through life can feel lonely and distancing. Our relationships are the people who mean the most to us. At times, our relationships can feel distanced or disconnected, and leave us feeling misunderstood, confused, and rejected. Especially when we, or a loved one, are going through a difficult time. Sometimes we just need to feel heard, supported, and know that we are not on our own in this world. Being involved in a group of papers who are in a similar place not only increases one's understanding of the struggles around the topic but also the variety in the possible solutions available.
When we are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other life difficulties, we often feel disconnected from others. This often leads to questioning our relationships, doubting ourselves and our worth, feeling like no one understands us or is going through the same thing, and we can end up shutting out loved ones for what feels like self preservation. For all of these reasons, and many more, group therapy can be a first step to taking back our life from the symptoms. Group therapy can be a great way to learn about yourself and your relationships, share your experiences, feel supported by others who also have had similar experiences, and to jump-start the improvements you want to see in your life.
"Some of the most comforting words in the universe are 'me too.' That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else struggle that you're not alone, and that others have been down the same road."
