It is only fair you asked. There are many reasons of course, but the main one can be found in one story. When I was in college in Albania, I volunteered with UNICEF as a refugee relief worker during the Kosova-Serbia war. That experience taught me that through connection, compassion and kindness we can heal even the most painful wounds and overcome even the worst of wrong-doings. In fact, when we feel connected, cared for, understood, supported and guided, we can find hope even in the darkest of despair. There is no greater purpose than to be there with someone in their pain, suffering, hope, joy, accomplishment. There is no greater meaning than this.
Many people are apprehensive about counseling but, really, there is nothing to it. Sure, it is awkward to open up to a complete stranger but there is also something comforting about the fact that they won't judge you or share all your secrets with everyone else. Counseling provides an emotional safety that is hard to find in day-to-day interactions. We often ignore problems because we are taught to rely on ourselves alone. Or, our problems are too painful to face so we would rather ignore them. We would rather numb with drugs, alcohol, sex, self-destructive habits, unhealthy relationships, unfulfilling jobs, money, work, the list goes on. Sometimes we blame others for our problems and this mentality keeps us stuck and helpless. Sometimes the solution is right in front of us but we are overcome with fear and shame. We all want to be happy but we don’t always know how to make ourselves happy because we go about it the wrong way. Sometimes we are too proud to admit we need help. No one is perfect. We all suffer. That’s our underlying condition.
