Re: Slightly different prob but along the same lines...
Dear Jez, you sound like an interesting person, I never thought counseller/therapist types would ever have this problem. My problem stems from social anxiety (or performance anxiety). I just sent a response to your last post (about getting your man back) how did you go with that? I'm no counsellor but I can understand that you are only human, and not superhuman. Everyone has some sort of burden in there life, for some sort of reason or another, and the human mind is always a challenging trivia as to why we feel the way we do. Don't be so hard on yourself, there is a reason for everything in life. This is just another hurdle to combat. You obviously was brave enough to become a counsellor/therapist because you like helping people and it must give you some sort of satisfaction in doing so. It's now time to help yourself - you're important too. So take the time out and do that, and let your man (hopefully he is still in the picture, to help you.) Don't be afraid "counsellor" to cry out for help, you're human too. Don't put all the burden on yourself. I bet your a perfectionist. Hey, no one is perfect and without fault. Reach out, you haven't failed. Good luck Jez.
