Who is putting pressure on you to man up? is it society, family or yourself?
Opening up is not weakness it requires a lot of strength to face our anxieties and admit we don’t feel good enough, we don’t feel like we can cope, we feel shit but have no idea why.
The opposite of manning up is opening up and dealing with how you’re feeling so you can free yourself from your anxieties and working on a strategy to help you live the life you want without these fears holding you back. Booking the session in is the first step to gaining back control of your stressful thoughts.
Don’t think that if you’ve tried a form of therapy before and it hasn’t worked that you should give up. I have a very different approach and I work with clients to tackle the issues but more importantly move forward with a constructive plan
