Saying Yes to the Mirror

Take Your Own Advice

As a Mental Health Therapist and life/relationship coach I work with many women.  Many of these women suffer from similar issues: financial, romantic, professional and family and etc.  I applaud these women for seeking my professional help because the first step to changing a problem is recognizing that there is a problem. 

What astonishes me is not whom they seek advice from but whom they don’t seek advice from.  They talk to their friends, their parents, co-workers, sisters, or even the random woman on the street. Many of these women seek advice from everyone else but themselves.  They never take a step back and look in the mirror and ask themselves:

“What do I really want?”

“How do I feel?”

“What do I have to lose or win?”

“Is this something I really should be worried about?”

So when I pose these questions to my clients they are often rendered speechless.  They cannot provide answers to these questions because they never took the time to seek their own advice.  When it is their own advice, which is most helpful.  

Take Your Own Advice

Why is this? Because no one knows you better than you know yourself; no one understands your situation or your position in the situation as much as you do.  More importantly, no one has your best interest more at hand than you do.  Therefore, making you the expert of your life and how to solve your life challenges.

Yes, other people can provide you with an alternate perspective to your situation and challenges but more than likely they do not provide more insight then what you already know.  Denial is a powerful tool, so stop it.  Face the facts and face yourself.  Seek your own advice and follow it.  Easier said then done, but it is probably the best thing you can start to do for yourself.
