How many of us have junk, in our homes, garages, cars, etc., that we keep saying we will get rid of soon? When that free time comes available to get of the junk, what do we do? We make excuses! We will find anything else to fill our time up with, other than cleaning up that junk. Well the same goes for our internal “junk”. Internal junk is the shame, negative self talk, self doubt, low self esteem, anger, and resentment we internalize.
How do we get rid of internal junk? Is this possible? Yes, it is! It is important to take the time to spend time in self reflection. If you know you are walking around with internal junk, would like to get rid of it, but do not know how…start with counseling. We have all heard the cliche definition of insanity…doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome or change. So, if you have been trying to get rid of the internal junk on your own for months or years and have not succeeded…it’s time to try something new.
When will you decide that enough is enough? When will you decide that “I’m tired of this!” It may seem scary or intimidating but counselors or therapists are there to help you work through your internal junk. They are not there to judge you for your past, present or future choices. Stop making excuses!!
