Welcome February 2023. At Towler Counseling, if you have been following us for January, we discuss setting and sticking with goals. February, I thought I would blog about setting goals for ourself and how to love ourselves even when we don’t meet theses goals. I have heard many of times “that’s easier said than done”. I get it. I have said theses words. I have been mad myself for not making a goal when I felt I should have. How can I give myself grace? How can I be okay with maybe not meeting a goal or keep pushing until I meet the goal. I ask clients, how do you show grace to others?

The Scoop on Social Anxiety
Anxiety is defined as an intense feeling of worry. Anxiety can strike in psychological and physiological ways. Anxiety can look like worrying about the future. For example, you may worry about test results, job performance, marital satisfaction, business success, etc. It is normal for us to worry about important events and significant people in our lives. But anxiety is different from normative worries as it is more pervasive, making it difficult for us to have healthy relationships, perform work duties and meet other responsibilities of daily living. Unhealthy anxiety levels are marked by feeling uneasy, uncertain, out-of-control, and grave concerned. On a physica...
