Counseling for Depression and Low Self-Esteem in Coral Springs
Helping Individuals Improve Self-Esteem and Confidence
You often wonder how others do it. How do they get their kids to sleep in their own beds, get to them to school on time, and get themselves to work before 10 am? How do they have time to make healthy meals for their family, and exercise, AND go out with their friends?
You often find yourself wishing you had a different life: a different job, a different family, a different appearance, and a different ex-husband. Your apartment’s a mess, you feel like you can’t control your child, and your parents try to help but they just don’t seem to understand.
Every day seems to take so much of out of you; getting up in time to get yourself ready for work, your child to school, finishing the chores around the house. You’re ashamed to admit how bad things have gotten. And you just don’t know what to do.
Low Self-Esteem Shows Up in A Lot of Different Areas of Life
As someone struggling with feelings of low self-esteem you might be feeling:
- Misunderstood by your family, friends, and co-workers
- Unmotivated about the day ahead
- Like you can’t make progress in your career, health, or relationship goals
- That you don’t really like yourself
- Unable to let go of past hurts and move on
Low self-esteem often looks a lot like feelings anger, anxiety, and depression.
You get angry when your child doesn’t listen to you because you feel like no other parents have these problems with their child, and to you, it just reinforces the thought that you’re not a good parent.
You feel anxious over the smallest things, like what to wear to work, what to pack for lunch, and how to do your hair because you feel like your co-workers don’t like you; they’ve never invited you out to lunch with them.
And you feel sad because you know this isn’t the life you want to be living. You want to feel happy, confident, and sure of yourself and your decisions.
Think of What Your Life Will Look Like When You Have Confidence
You’d wake up in the morning and look forward to your day. You’d feel confident in your parenting and raising your child, regardless of what your parents or ex say. You’d feel happy, healthy, and secure in your decisions.
Imagine what it will feel like when you look forward to work, seeing your co-workers, and feeling accomplished at the end of the day. You have enough time to tidy up around the house before you pick up your child and you feel good about your home. You’re following a schedule and it feels good to have that stability and control in your life.
Depression Therapy and Counseling Can Improve Your Life
With the help of a therapist, you can have the life you want and more.
Counseling and therapy can help you:
- Strengthen relationships with your family, friends, and coworkers
- Wake up each morning looking forward to the day ahead
- Find motivation and discipline to achieve your goals
- Start to accept yourself for who you are, flaws and all
- Improve your communication to set appropriate boundaries with your ex-husband
- Let go of the need to prove yourself to others
It’s possible to start feeling better about yourself. Counseling and therapy help us explore how our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves negatively influence our behavior. It also helps us look at how our past experiences shaped who we are today and make sense of sometimes “irrational” behavior.
Armed with that knowledge, we can begin taking steps towards creating a better present, and future, for ourselves. Knowing that we don’t have to believe those negative beliefs we hold about ourselves and we can choose more positive ones.
