Mental illness can be caused by a combination of nature and nurture and speaks to us of inherent weaknesses in our structure, foundations and coping mechanisms. If you or someone you know is suffering from severe pathologies seeking help can result in learning to effectively manage, or even heal the root cause of the disorder. In the process, we gain enormous insight and meaning into ourselves and our deep life purpose.
But this post is not on mental illness. Chances are you are relatively stable and not manifesting the most extreme signs of distress when times are good or okay. But what happens when the cookie crumbles? Do you have emotional outbursts? Do you take out your emotions on those who are closest to you? Do you go berserk when things do not go your way? So, while you may not be off the rails or a basket case, some time spent understanding and fine-tuning your relationship to your emotions, the ways you express yourself and relate to others and much more can be improved by developing an on-going relationship with a psychotherapist. There is no need to wait until crisis hits. In fact, therapy done as damage control, is akin to fire-fighting whereas taking pro-active steps toward building a therapeutic relationship accompanied by a qualified professional, leads to building deep understanding of your emotions, reactions and dynamics which will certainly prepare you and reduce any future hiccups from mountains to molehills.
