There is a train of thought that tells us that we should love ourselves even though we have certain aspects of our personality that we would love nothing more than to banish forever. If one can accept themselves and the trait is not putting you or those around you in harm’s way, that isn’t an unhealthy way to approach a shortcoming. However, if it is troublesome to you in any way, you should know that many conditions can potentially be resolved with clinical psychology treatments.
- Impulse Control Issues– Some impulses may be little more than annoying to you, while others can decrease the quality of your life. For example, you could suffer unduly if you cannot control your impulses for gambling, sexual relations, overeating, or other behaviors.
- Parenting Issues- Most parents at one time or another wish their child was born with an instruction manual. While the bookstores are full of parenting books, if you feel you are lacking as a parent, it is never too late to seek help. We often fall short in the same manner our parents did, so if you are repeating history by being abusive, neglectful, or causing self-esteem issues, seek out professional help from a clinical psychologist.
- Self-Esteem Issues- Lacking confidence can keep you from growing as an individual and reaching your potential. Constant feelings of being inadequate can lead to depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts. This is also a cycle that can go from parent to child unless it is broken by clinical psychology treatments.
- Relationship Issues– Repeated relationship failures can leave one feeling alone, abandoned, and unworthy. While you may have an issue that keeps you from experiencing a healthy relationship, it might also be that you inadvertently choose the wrong type of person over and over again. You may be able to end the cycle with clinical psychology treatments.
