Anxiety Can Look Like..
You are feeling behind.
Everyone around you is getting married, starting a family, or moving on in their career.
Or you are feeling an emptiness because you do not know what your purpose is.
This has left you stuck, overthinking, and stressed about the next steps in life.
Life is not bad, but it is not everything you hoped for it to be. Although you see the good, anxiety can make you feel like you are not doing enough, even when you are doing what you can. Often, we feel pressure from our surroundings to keep reaching higher goals. This can leave you unsatisfied, anxious, and feeling like you are not enough as you are. Everyone goes through life at their own pace and when people our age seem to be moving ahead, we naturally may feel inferior.

Sometimes people worry about beginning therapy. Whether you have a negative perception of mental health services or worry about what others may think of you, therapy can help. You may be a person who thinks “where I come from, we don’t do therapy,” or perhaps you may wonder “if I begin therapy, does that mean I am telling God he is not enough?.” Perhaps, life has been going smoothly until something pops up again to throw it off course.
