13 signs you’re in need of counseling

1. If there is a major change in your life, good or bad.
2. If you self-medicate (alcohol, drugs, food, etc.)
3. If you have unexplained physical problems that may be arising from stress.
4. If you are depressed or anxious, and it doesn’t go away.
5. If you doubt yourself.
6. If you have low self-esteem.
7. If a child is experiencing stress due to your attitudes and behaviors.
8. If there is too much distance in your marriage or partnership.
9. If you just need to talk.
10. If you’re curious about the counseling process.
11. If you and your mate or partner have never had an argument.

That's a very interesting perspective. I used to work for a counseling organization (in a lay capacity) and after that experience nothing on earth will ever make me see a counselor!

Great list...I would only add that you have to find the RIGHT counselor...they are NOT all created equal...every person is different, there is NO one-size-fits-all in counseling. Keep looking until you find a counselor who works for you.

Happy T-13!
