A few years ago, I was working with a young man with borderline personality disorder, who had a life-threatening bout with cancer a few years before.
He would often fall into a deep depression and feel like he couldn’t get any help.
It was a common complaint, and I knew that his GP had no idea how to deal with it.
When the time came to see the counsellor, the first thing she said was: “Well, you’re in the process of developing your disorder and that means you’re likely to have some self-harm, so we need to help you through that”.
In some cases, it was the right thing to do.
But for others, the idea of seeing a counsellors job description was just not realistic.
So I decided to do something different.
My first step was to take a few minutes to think about what I needed to do to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
I started to consider the possible benefits of the job, and how it might help me develop a new kind of relationship with myself.
I would be able to learn a lot more about myself, my own thoughts and feelings and the processes by which I am able to process the world.
I realised that a job that is primarily about making me feel better is not the right way to go about it.
It’s important to remember that we don’t just need to find the right job.
The right job is the one that will allow you to learn how to love yourself and accept yourself.
The job you are doing right now is not going to be enough to meet your needs, nor will it solve the underlying issues that cause your distress.
The things that work for people with mental health problems may not work for you, or they may work better than what you’re used to.
It’s important for you to be able and willing to change your life if you’re going to have the best possible outcome.
But if you have the skills and confidence to do that, you should take the next step.
The first step is to ask yourself what your needs are, and what you can do to find ways to meet those needs.
Then, ask yourself: What are the opportunities to do this?
Then you will need to decide what it is you want to do differently, and which skills will be the most effective.
For me, I started by looking at my own strengths, which was a bit of a challenge.
The key was learning how to recognise those things I needed, and where I could take myself.
For example, I would have to look for a way to stop myself from acting out, or to manage my anger.
As I developed those skills, I learned to recognise when I needed a break, and when I was really trying to be helpful.
For instance, when I am depressed or anxious, I’d look for ways to ease my mind.
And then I’d take myself out of the situation, to let myself take a break.
At times, it’s important not to overdo it, because we don�t want to just sit back and wait for our emotions to kick in.
But we need a little time to build trust, and we need help to understand how to work with ourselves and manage our emotions.
