So often we focus on the negative. It’s easy to do. The negative causes hurt and pain. To counteract the negative, we have to train ourselves to focus on the positive.

We can start taking care of our mental health by answering these questions:

  1. What do people say you are really good at?
  2. What’s working in your life?
  3. What do you think you’re good at?
  4. What do you enjoy doing?
  5. What’s important to you?
  6. What are you looking forward to in the next two to three weeks?
  7. What are you proud of?

Hopefully, these are easy questions for you to answer. If they aren’t, it could simply mean you are stuck and could benefit from brainstorming with someone else.

It could also mean your mental health is suffering.

Whether you are feeling depressed, or suffer from low self-esteem, therapy can help. By working with a psychologist, we can help identify what is blocking you from being able to answer these questions, think about your values and goals, and decide how that could translate into living an authentic life that leads to an improvement in your mood.

If you have trouble answering these questions, contact us to schedule a time to talk. At Relationship Solutions Center, P.C. our goal is…
