There is much more to you than you realize.
You are worth getting to know. More than that, you are worthy of knowing yourself. Through our lives we learn to see ourselves as limited in dimensions. We assume roles both professionally and socially, taking care to play these roles to the best of our ability.
In the digital age we show people a side of our lives we wish them to believe we live, because we wish to believe we live them too. Now, more and more, our deepest selves are subconsciously shamed into remaining unseen by others in favour of false happiness.
Technology, while not inherently evil, undoubtedly works to keep us distracted from the difficult emotions, traumas and inescapable flaws that we keep buried underneath, and as a result, we may fear getting to know who we truly are.
Beneath this seemingly scary layer of discomfort lies who we truly are - a person of inconceivable dimension, who is infinitely interesting and possesses boundless potential.
Knowing yourself in new ways leads to more effective and meaningful lives.
The way out is in.
Like us, this simple phrase carries more weight when we take the time to understand it.
When we make the decision to invest in ourselves, we begin to see everywhere how our personal patterns and choices affect our lives. These may be positive and functional, or they may show us where opportunities for development exist.
Through these conscious observations, we move from the passenger position to the driver’s seat. What is discovered is an agency we previously were unaware we possessed. With commitment, effort and persistence we learn not simply to overcome our weaknesses, but to understand, accept, and work with them.
By letting go of the resistance to who we are, the meaning in life is revealed - as if it were always there. Our courage to endure not-so-good days is rewarded with knowledge, power and purpose.
A space in which people can learn to trust, grow and thrive.
Sometimes our past experiences have shaped us into a protective shell where trust, vulnerability and openness are avoided for fear of further suffering. There is no shame in this, and those who experience this kind of reaction to their circumstances are far from alone.
It is important to remember that journeys are rarely successful if taken alone. One of the greatest challenges to deeper meaning in life is the reluctance to open ourselves up - to be vulnerable around others.
This is understandable. Vulnerability traditionally has a stigma of translating to weakness. What we are beginning to understand is that true strength, not to mention true connection, comes from vulnerability.
When we allow ourselves to be known, we are better able to know others. Our connections grow deeper, our relationships more meaningful, and our place in the world more defined. When we feel this sense of belonging and do away with the fear of true, deep connection, we are able to thrive and wholeheartedly trust.
Depth psychotherapists provide safe, empathic, and non-judgemental spaces that allow you to experience the power of trust; to see in a safe environment that you are not alone and that your story deserves to be heard.
