Anxiety is one of the most misunderstood mental health conditions. People who are faced with it are constantly given counterproductive messages like, “You need to pull yourself together” or, “You don’t have anything to be anxious about.”
As we go through life, we all experience highs and lows where our confidence is concerned. We feel sure of ourselves when we are doing well financially, when we are engaged in tasks we are good at, and when we are in solid relationships with people we trust.
Nobody goes into a marriage without the expectation that it will last forever, and when couples have difficulties, they usually make attempts to resolve them. This may involve counselling, trial separations and new patterns of behaviour.
One of the most painful human experiences is the loss of somebody we love. Not only do you have to come to terms with the permanent absence of someone who has been an important part of your life, in many cases you have to make logistical changes as well.
Anxiety is a normal part of life, even though it may feel uncomfortable. Under certain circumstances, a high level of anxiety may even be beneficial, since it results in our bodies preparing to either escape or fight a potentially dangerous situation.
here is no getting away from the fact that parenting is a challenge. No matter how many children you have, how old they are and how well-behaved they are, there are bound to be some obstacles along the way.
It has been said that “no man is an island”. Human beings do not exist independently of one another: from a very young age, our lives are defined to a large extent by our relationships with those around us.
Sexuality is a multi-faceted arena that affects many areas of our lives, including our relationships and our state of physical and mental health. It encompasses a lot more than the ability to enjoy healthy sexual relationships.
Most people get a little nervous in certain social situations. They might experience sweaty palms right before a job interview, or find that their heart is pounding a little before they deliver a presentation.
The social dynamics of men and women have changed dramatically over the last several decades. Just one or two generations ago, men were traditionally the sole breadwinners in most families, while the women stayed home with the children.
