In my case, I’m working to help others deal with anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
But my first instinct was to keep it simple and focus on my own life.
This has been my goal since I started teaching at a primary school in 2009.
I’ve spent my entire career at a secondary school and then a tertiary school.
I have never worked as a psychologist, so it was easy to just focus on the things I did do that were important to me.
I had to make decisions that would make me happy and help me cope with my emotions.
The key was not to let the environment dictate how I acted or what I did.
I also made sure that I was aware of my emotions and how to handle them, so I didn’t get overwhelmed or put myself in harm’s way.
I’m still learning to be an effective counsellor but I know that by following the simple steps I’ve outlined, I can improve the lives of others.
What to do When you feel overwhelmed or stressed: Ask for advice.
I know it’s hard to get advice from a friend or family member, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed or depressed, ask for their help.
I would never ask someone to go to a crisis centre or get treatment from a therapist, but it’s a good idea to ask people about their symptoms.
For example, do you: think about your thoughts or feelings?
If so, what’s going on in your mind?
Ask for your thoughts to be recorded and shared with your doctor.
If you can, ask your GP for advice on how to record the thoughts.
