Talking With Someone Gives You A Better Perspective!
Does it feel like you just about had enough? Everyone goes through tough times, and you know the feeling when you’ve had something on your mind whether for just a few hours or months it’s important that you talk to someone about it. You don’t have to deal with life all by yourself. There are many health benefits of talking to someone about how you’re feeling.
- Help you sort out what you are feeling. Talking about your feelings can help you make sense of what you are going through. Sometimes, just verbalizing what is upsetting you to someone you trust can help you sort through your emotions, or help simplify the situation with you.
- Help you get things in perspective. If you find that you regularly keep things to yourself, a situation seems more overwhelming than it might be in reality. The best thing to do is to talk to someone about it, (in this case me) might help you see the situation in a new or different perspective. Someone like me outside the situation would also be less emotionally involved with what’s going on because the outcome wouldn’t affect me personally, yet I could relate my experiences and faith to be of help to you. I just want to make it clear, that I am not a professional counselor, I am just someone like you that have been through my share of life experience and somehow came out landing on my feet somehow. The person you speak with (me) can also suggest options that you had not thought about before. It helps to talk with someone rather than taking everything on your own shoulders.
- Help you figure out how to release tension. Talking through your concerns can also be an excellent way to release pent-up tension. Just “getting the problem out” can help you feel better. Not only does it feel great, but it can also give you new insights into what’s happening in your life.
