Feeling Isolated in the Snow
The recent heavy snow has led to a temporary disruption in people’s everyday routines. This means you can feel isolated in the snow. Therefore this separation from friends and family can make us feel more anxious and certain.
You may find it highlights these feelings of aloneness and focuses you on thoughts deliberately buried in the constant trudge of everyday routine. Things avoided in the background noise and blare of normal life laid bare by some snowflakes.
Feeling Low in the Snow
Maybe you’ve been caught unaware by an unexpected low, or you want to take stock of new thoughts and ideas that emerged when everyday life was turned upside down last week. Such a sudden and unexpected change in the weather can also stress you. This can also bring up other things that stress you. Without your usual distractions and with it being hard to get out and about, your mind can run riot.
Feeling supported in Counselling
Seize the opportunity to address the issues, resolve the conflicts in yourself and find time to enjoy your life. Counselling can also help you remember the positive slant in any situation and the opportunities this can bring you. Sometimes snow brings a sense of community with people pulling together to share food supplies and clear each other’s paths. You can learn to build yourself up even when snow is a reminder of who isn’t around and who you miss. Feeling isolated in the snow can become a distant memory.
Counselling can also help you to understand yourself more deeply. By making sense of your feelings and uncovering your current motivation, this can lead to exciting and unexpected life changes.
You may wonder what you will talk about in a session and this is completely understandable, especially if you have no previous experience of therapy.
