Counselors in Windermere often find that men and women tend to have anxiety issues when speaking about their emotional state to a partner or in general. Speaking about emotions can cause anxiety and be tiring. Most often what leads to these thought patterns is not having the confidence in your ability to express your emotions. Therapists in Windermere would agree that individuals often lack this confidence because they were not taught how to healthily express their feelings and which ones to react to or not.
When you are growing up, you learn right and wrong about many social norms. Emotions are also something you may have been learned about from these rules. You may have learned that you have a hard time distinguishing between which feeling is right and which feeling is wrong. You may wonder if you are "overreacting, being dramatic, or feeling what you should be feeling.
Most often, the emotions you experience are an indication that you have experienced a "triggering event" that has a highly impactful impression on you. You cannot control what you will feel or experience, but you can control how you react. Having confidence in your emotional state requires you to be fully confident within yourself. This means validating that what you are experiencing is only tailored to you and that there is not an overreaction happening.
This confidence-building of your emotional state can happen in both Windermere men’s therapy in Windermere and women's therapy in Windermere. The focus of these types of therapies is to be able to individually assess where the emotions are coming from, why they are happening, and how they are impacting you today. The type of individual therapy in Windermere allows for you to find your own way to speak about these emotions in a way that works for you and expresses their importance all in one.
Having confidence in your emotional state is something that takes time to build and requires deep self-evaluation. The core to this is knowing that they are your emotions and that there is nothing wrong with the way you are feeling, all you need is the appropriate place and person to build this confidence with.
