There may be issues in our lives that we are not aware of. They are brought to our attention by others and it can be a rude shock. Our self-esteem can be undermined by other’s judgements and perceptions. We want to talk about it but need a safe place to do so, and a listening non-judgemental ear.
We may need support and somebody to validate and clarify and we consider making life changing decisions. Our biggest issues may be finding purpose and meaning in life. We may not be unwell. We just want to have stop-gaps in place to retain wellness.
