Feeling Stuck

There are times when we all feel stuck in our lives. We may know our options, but nothing feels right. Maybe some options don’t even feel like they’re possible. Maybe we know the way forward, but just aren’t able to get there. Or maybe we’re just not completely sure what our options are. Feeling stuck can feel like being an observer of your life instead of an active participant. It can feel like repeating the same patterns over and over again and getting the same result. It can feel frustrating, demoralizing, and can cause you to lose confidence in yourself. Those feelings can bleed over into other areas of your life, too. Maybe you feel stuck in your career or in a relationship or just in the same hum-drum routines that you’ve had for a while.

 

Therapists at Live True Counseling Can Help

When feeling stuck is making you unhappy or causing distress, therapy can help. Talking through your feelings can help you explore your options and discover possibilities that you didn’t know were there. Therapy can help you explore your feelings of uncertainty and immobility. Exploring those feelings can bring about a shift, present you with different perspectives, and help you figure out what the barriers are to moving forward. Talking with someone who accepts you and your struggle and who can help you get your feet back under you can lead you to take the next step that you previously didn’t think was possible.

Live True Counseling’s therapists understand what it’s like to feel like you’re not moving forward in life the way you want to. We provide a warmth and acceptance that allows you to feel safe as you explore your difficulties and distress. Our therapists can help guide you toward finding your own answers that make sense for your life. We can help you discover new ways forward and partner with you as you uncover next steps that are meaningful for you.

The most powerful tool in therapy is the relationship built by our therapists and their clients. That’s why we offer a free 30-minute consultation to determine if we’d be a good fit.
