Decisions and emotional health

Every moment of life offers us the opportunity to make choices. From deciding which flavor of ice cream to eat on a nice spring afternoon to whom you will spend the rest of your days with as a couple - with all the weight that such a commitment entails. We tend to be complicated when it comes to making minor decisions, taking too much time and even subjecting ourselves to lengthy analyses that only rob us of our sleep each night and result in endless anxiety.However, I find it extremely curious - and painful - to realize that we do not usually proceed in the same way when making decisions with a major implication on our lives, such as being...

The liberating power of forgiveness

The arrival of spring is nature's invitation for us to consider a new beginning. No matter what you have lived through so far, you have the power to start anew. It may seem like an ideal or a utopian idea, but you can actually achieve it with effort and commitment on your part. First, be honest with yourself: What is working in your life? What is not working? What is holding you back? What is causing you anger, frustration, sadness, fear, anxiety? Once you are honest with yourself you have begun the process of your transformation.It is important that you can accept your reality so that you can move on to the next thing. And that requires you to forgive...

Get organized by setting goals.

Summer is here! For many, it's a reason to rejoice because they will take a few days off from work, a planned trip with their family, or they can simply have some time off from the obligations that come with supporting their children in their schoolwork. For others, it can be a stressful time, as it also involves figuring out what to do with their children now that the school semester has come to an end. And just as our children are expected to grow and mature to welcome the next school year in August, it is worth asking yourself how you have grown, how you have transformed your life in a positive way in these first six months of...

Because suicide is preventable.

We all find it difficult to talk about suicide because I guess in addition to the grotesque images that come to mind of how the person lost their life, it also presupposes a sense of guilt on a collective and individual level that highlights how we are failing as a society, to such an extent that life is unsustainable for that person. But beyond that, I personally think it is also about making us vulnerable that it can also happen to us and makes us aware of our own internal struggle, and at times, moments where - perhaps on a smaller or larger scale - we have also pondered the idea that life is unsustainable as we know it, or...

Importance of healthy self-esteem.

Reflecting on what all the people who honor me with their vote of confidence as their mental health professional share, I have come to the conclusion that we all need to strengthen our self-esteem or sense of self-worth, and that therein lies the key to happiness and what we call full well-being in life. In analyzing the problems that my patients present, almost all of them have their origin in low self-esteem. Sometimes it happens because of events in childhood, sometimes because of situations in youth or adulthood, that mark us and that we interpret in such a way that makes us feel insecure, undervalued, unloved. Clearly, when we live like this, what we feel is loneliness, anxiety and depression....
