Expert Counseling Help for an Avoidant Personality
Avoidant personality issues often start in childhood. Many children are taught by parents to never "talk-back" to them. Some of us learn that too well. Sometimes we learn that "speaking-up" for ourselves fails to net the results we want. For some people a difficult confrontation has led to some broken relationships along the way. From which, has caused some of you to come to believe that you should never confront again. Sometimes due to a wounded spirit we see ourselves as small or incompetent at communicating our desires effectively so we remain silent. These painful experiences, and many more, teach us to adopt certain habits and patterns early in life that we continue using even though they can be dysfunctional for us as adults. We continue blindly doing things we learned as children even though they no longer work.
Let us help you discover the ineffective coping strategies that you have adopted and how to implement better ways of interacting with others so that you can have the life you always wanted. You know deep down inside that not dealing with important issues is hurting you and your relationships. Please know that as humans we counselors have had to confront these things in ourselves too. We can help you examine yourself without making you feel judged. Push through any feelings of embarrassment you may be having that limit the blessing awaiting you and arrange for a time to talk with a counselor today.
