Orlando Group Therapy and the many wonderful benefits. Why would a person want to join a group and expose themselves and that which they deem to be private and confidential? I would’ve thought the same thing several years ago before I had started my own journey and therapy. No One I thought could relate to me. Who I am is original and my problems are different from others. I was also conditioned to not burden or bother others with my petty problems and to shove them down and keep them to myself.
Just hearing the word group counseling sent chills up my spine because that would mean I’d have to do some level of authenticity or realness with another person. Another woman in particular and that was unheard of. Women were not taught to air their dirty laundry. It was supposed to stay hidden and buried deep inside. So what if it created an immense feeling of passive aggressiveness.
It wasn’t until I was desperate enough to reach out that I realized I needed the support of other women. I was then willing to join a group. I won’t lie when I said I wasn’t nervous, but there was at least a willingness to peek my head out from under the covers. The world alone and isolated was closing in on me and I knew it was time to merge back into society.
For many women we are conditioned to not get along other women. This is unfortunate but let’s call it what it is. We are plot to be jealous of each other, size each other up and definitely not share our deep dark secrets or express our feelings. If we did that then there’s no telling who those people could tell and then that could destroy who we are. Who we think we are. Our status and image smashed.
If that sounds a little dramatic it’s because it is. Nobody’s really thinking about us as much as we think about ourselves. People are mainly thinking about who they are and who they want you to think they are. At the same time we’re thinking about ourselves and who we want you to think we are. It’s very confusing like a spiderweb that just keeps getting spun and we’re in the middle of it getting tossed and turned everywhere. This is the ego.
Start a new life with others who you can connect to. Women who speak your language and understand your concerns, sorrows, victories and insight. Hold the space for each other and grow, expand and become fully self actualized.
Orlando Group Therapy creates the dynamics and an experience for women to work out these knots. The knots that I refer to are those from childhood that we bring into adulthood or womanhood. By interacting with, through and between each other we are able to be a direct reflection for each other. We are able to see ourselves and the way we are perceived on the outside. This is different from the way we believe the world sees us. It’s an amazing and very powerful shift of energy. To be able to have other females that you can bond with and share similar experiences and stories with. We start to learn that we aren’t as unique as we thought. Even though our store is very slightly in the plot the theme is still the same. This is very fine connection and friendship.
