WE made it. Some us fared better than others. Some of us are sipping hot tea, sucking down ibuprofen and breathing a sigh of relief that the holiday gathering is over. Others of us are curled into a fetal position in the corner licking our wounds- wounds inflicted by people that were supposed to love us, no matter what.
So what now? Do we wait around for another year just to face the same troubles again? Do we bury our feelings and thoughts so that we don't have to remember what our least favorite aunt, parent or child said to us?
No, we don't. And, God does not want us to, either. The Bible tells us that what is done in darkness will be brought to light and that those things that are of the dark, they cannot exist in the light.
For many people, counseling can seem very scary. It is intimating to sit in a room with a total stranger and share your deepest thoughts. And how do you know that your issues are counseling worthy? That can be a big deterrent as well, as many people are not sure they need to see a counselor.
So, in honor of that, I thought I'd share with you some of the reasons people have come into my office and started the process of healing through Christian/Biblical counseling.
Body image issues
Artistic and creative blocks
Fear & Worry
As you can see, the list is long and this is not all...
