Everyone has problems. It’s a truth we can’t escape. Often times we wish we could escape our problems or have them removed. It is rarely that simple. When you see a problem, do you ever listen to your subconscious or your unconscious mind? Let me explain.
Our subconscious is a powerful tool to understanding why we do the things we do and why we have the problems we have. Humans have a tendency to play the fool. We say we have a problem or issue, but we don’t really look at the real reason why. Usually this is because we won’t like what we see. For example, why does a lonely person push others away? Could it be because they don’t want to lose that feeling of loneliness? Maybe on an unconscious level they really like being alone because then they don’t have to change how they really are. The unconscious mind exposes true motive. Many do not want to go there because it will really show why they do the things they do.
The question becomes, do you really want to change? If you are in a bad relationship, in a dead end job, lonely, abusing substances or any other problem, ask yourself why. This takes deep self-analysis and you may not like what you see. However, after you see it, you will then be in a better position to overcome it. This takes time and a lot of hard work. A mental health care professional is equipped to help you through this process. To learn more, visit Psychotherapy Options.
