 In Counselling

Is your overactive mind preventing you from experiencing peace and satisfaction? A lot of us suffer from the inability to be happy and joyful in our everyday lives. The reasons for inner chaos can be various and different for everyone but can often start off as a lack of meaning and lead to chronic unhappiness and a slew of other mental health struggles.

Chaos brings about uncertainty, fears, and inabilities and it is inevitable. Life is crazy, hectic, and uncertain and that only amplifies the chaos within us. With all of the outer chaos in today’s world, that seems to bombard us at every second, finding any peace in between all the challenges being thrown at us can seem impossible.

Living with internal chaos can affect your life and wellbeing in many ways. It can cause you to lose focus and bog down your mind. It can cause stress and make day to day tasks more difficult. Internal chaos also causes emotional and psychological distress.

This makes happiness and peace seem so much more out of reach, maybe even like a fairytale or something to strive for after retirement and you are soaking up sun all day on your yacht.

But is this how life is supposed to be lived? You screaming at the top of your lungs, trying to dig yourself out of a hole but feel as if you are being buried by quicksand your whole life because something isn’t right, but you just don’t know what it is or why you feel this way?

Inner chaos is an overwhelming sense of dissatisfaction and unhappiness with ourselves as humans and/or the life we are living. You are not alone; in our modern world more and more people struggle with this than ever before.

Perhaps you have tried to talk to someone about it and were told that this is just how life is, being unsatisfied in some area of your life is normal and that’s just the way is it so accept it and move on. So, you try to accept it but something inside you is picking and nagging and no matter how hard you try, your mind just can’t remain calm.
