There is no such thing as ‘normal ‘ ! Many of my clients say they wish they were more like the people around them – ‘ normal’ people, and I ask them what they think ‘normal’ is exactly ?
If you look at statistics 1 in 3 women become depressed at some point in their lives , around 1 in 20 people go to their doctors with panic attacks (and thats just the ones that seek help – many people I see are too embarrassed to see a health professional) and the rest of us have mild OCD or phobias, and THATS normal.
So if you go to a party and everyone is having a lovely time and seems to have a wonderful issue free life – maybe just think about the statistics and know that we all put on a front and many people never tell anyone what is troubling them . You are not alone x
