Is it Time?
Maybe this page finds you for the first time…maybe it’s the tenth. No matter where you are in your process, we are glad you are here. Deciding whether or not it is the right time to seek help can be difficult and nerve-racking. That voice that says you should be stronger, try harder, or just pull yourself up by the bootstraps is a hard one to silence. The hope is that there is a stronger voice that has led you here, and it is time to give that voice a microphone. Here are some things to know to help amp up the volume.
One of the hardest steps is having the courage to take the first one. We hope you can acknowledge that you are trying your absolute best, and in fact, have utilized what you know to be your resources to manage this. When these attempts have not been effective, it is time. This is not because you are defective, broken, or crazy. On the contrary, you are choosing to seek goodness and healing; a loving and wise act. We all encounter the same world – one with great joy and beauty, but also pain and suffering. With many opportunities to let the pain block and distort beauty and truth, we may sometimes get stuck. The cost of avoidance can be great, and although it may help temporarily, a wound that never heals is a wound that is continually vulnerable. So here is the good news: there is hope. Life can be better; in fact, it can be great, and you can live well. Wounds can be healed, forgiveness can be given and received, and balance can be restored.
Whether you feel stuck regarding a phase of life concern, or have struggled for what feels like forever in a place of despair, the time is right. You have the courage to take this first step.
