Lay A Sound Foundation
If we're going to fix our own head, it's going to come down to self-awareness first. Are we finding identity in something outside of ourselves? Or is our identity based on what it should be based upon? Which is our value system, deeply held beliefs, gifts, talents, abilities, et cetera. This is our worldview, an all-encompassing philosophy of life. We all need one. Whether you take yours from religion or some other school of thought, we all need one. We need a totalistic way of looking at the world so that we can better identify ourselves in it. Therapy is about changing beliefs. It's about getting you to the place where you can see things differently again. Laying a sound foundation is crucial for us to work on our own mental therapy.
