Life is full of joy, but at the same time, has its share of inevitable challenges. Relationship breakdowns, work stress, financial hardship, accidents, illness, injuries, trauma, and bereavement can have devastating impacts on our mental health.
Acknowledging our own distress is one of the hardest things to do. For many of us, we spend years building defenses and protecting ourselves from experiencing difficult feelings for fear of what would happen if we allowed ourselves to know distress. After all, we need to be able to function in our daily lives and existing in ‘auto-pilot’ mode serves the purpose of navigating each day without having to acknowledge uncomfortable thoughts and feelings.
Unfortunately however, this does not work in the long term and glimpses of our distress continue to resurface time and time again and prevents us from being able to engage fully in the present and connect with our values to find meaning.
