I think that most people would agree that their emotional and psychological wellbeing is pretty important to them. It’s odd, therefore, that we overlook or ignore these aspects of living for so much of the time. Often it is only when something goes wrong that we decide to do something about it. When we get depressed, anxious or worried we decide to seek help.

We need to maintain and care for ourselves and this includes what is on the inside just as much as what others see. Some would even say get the inside right and the outside will take care of itself. The path to happiness and contentment lies this way, and it is our path, nobody else’s.

It’s always useful to find a guide when trying to find your way or exploring unfamiliar territory, but use a guide with caution. Remember that though they might understand the terrain, they cannot know anything about your path, or where it will lead.
