Dealing with disappointment, time to take stock of your life?

Reaching a point in your life where you might be thinking, where exactly am I in my life?  Is this where I wanted or thought I would be?  Then perhaps realising you don't like the answers to these questions can trigger feelings of disappointment, disillusionment and even depression.

There might not be a clear reason for reaching this point in your life and feeling this way but it can also be a result of a relationship break up, particularly a long term one, where you didn't expect it to end or even have to start again.  This situation alone can seem very daunting.

Speaking to a person-centred counsellor can help you get through this difficult point in your life and make sense of all these troubling feelings.  Choosing to bury your feelings and just getting on with it, may work for a time but actually feeling the associated grief and loss that goes hand in hand with a relationship break up and giving yourself time and space to heal and explore where you want to go from here can be far more rewarding both in the short and long term.

The greatest gift you can give to yourself is the opportunity to take stock. re-group. charge your batteries!  Personal counselling can help to rejuvenate you, you may even say to yourself, why didn't I try this years ago?!
