We are almost through the Christmas season. The Christmas tree is packed away. Space has been organized to accommodate the new items received as presents. Hopefully, the credit card bill isn’t so high that you have a heart attack. The winter solstice has passed so the days are getting longer. The weather is in it’s pattern of several cold days and then several warmer days.
Now is the time that we come down from the sugar high and over eating. In other words, life returns to normal. Now is the time that those ugly, negative self-talk words start creeping in our heads. “I’m ugly because I gained 5 pounds over Christmas.” “I’m total creeped out that Uncle whomever was at the Christmas get together. He has roman hands. I couldn’t get away from him fast enough. I didn’t like how he treated the other women in my family. Why do we put up with it?” “Aunt whomever really wanted to get too close to me and touch me–yuck? She was trying to kiss and hug all of the men.” “At the stroke of midnight my boy friend, girls friend, husband, wife told me they are breaking up or filing for divorce.” “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I find anyone who will love me?”
These types of thoughts do not have to get you down. There is help to combat this negative type of thinking. Your health insurance has a list of counseling providers that can help you. You can search for counselors on the internet. You do not need to be in distress.
Give yourself the best Christmas present ever–improved mental health. Don’t settle for the status quo.
