We’re all broken in some way. That might go without saying. On the days when we’re down and we’re thinking about terrible things that have happened … or maybe terrible things we’ve done … it’s easy to assume that others are better off. Social media certainly paints a picture of perfection in the lives of some. But the truth is everyone has scars and bruises from the past. Some just do a better job of concealing them.
Life is a wonderful gift, but that doesn’t make it an easy gift to use. For all the joys and wonders of life, there are disappointments and hurts, sadness and challenges. They chip away at us, and can wound us so deeply that we lose sight of who we are. We may even lose sight of the purpose we have in this life.
If this is speaking to you, please know this: your past does not define you nor does it decide your future. You are not your past. It may have shaped you, it may have affected your outlook, but it cannot control you. While it may have been a scene in your story, it isn’t the end of that story. What’s ahead is for you to determine, and the hurt you’ve accumulated can be healed. You can be made whole again.
You may not be able to do it alone, and that’s where we come in. The professional counselors at Care to Change don’t have magic wands that instantly transform you into the person you want to be. But we do have something more powerful: we have the ability to help you reach deep inside and find the person you were meant to be. Counseling isn’t about getting things off your chest or telling someone how your mother was mean to you. It’s about reflecting on how you became the person you are today, looking at who you really want to be, and creating a path to connect the two.
Our professionals are highly trained and use methods that have been proven effective and powerful through years of research. That doesn’t mean we have cookie-cutter approaches, but it does mean we’re able to use your time more efficiently and effectively. And just as important, everything we do is built upon a foundation of Biblical teaching. We serve Christ by helping you live the life God wanted you to have, and by teaching you strategies that are consistent with and that strengthen your personal faith. We won’t preach to you, but we’ll walk alongside you on your journey.
If you’re ready to move beyond your past and become the person you were always meant to be, contact us. We’re ready to help you heal.
