Depression and anxiety can feel overwhelming even on the best of days. I believe in helping clients understand these disorders and help them to reduce and manage symptoms.

Yes, be who you are. That's what makes us unique! If we all did the same thing or looked the same, it would be a very dull and boring life.
Simple answer... YES! no two people are completely the same, not even twins. every individual person is unique, from eye color, to hair color, from height and weight, to accents and lifestyles.
Yes it is. Everyone is unique in their own special way. No two people are alike. Just like all the planets are different even we are.
You're not everyone else, you can only be you. How any more different could each other be to everyone else ? It's diversity. It allows exchanges, sharing. Take it as a benefit !
Yes. It can be confusing and distressing when everyone else seems able to cope with things you can't. But that's not strictly true. Everyone on this planet is different from another and that is what makes us special. You are you and no one else is anything close. Be yourself and thrive, you are amazing.
I know this is an old thread, but i googled pretty much the same question and this thread came up as a result so I felt compelled to respond...Being different is what distinguishes you from the rest of the mouth breathers on this planet. For the longest time I felt pretty much like you..that there was something abnormal about me cause I don't fit in or get along with most "normal" people. But that is exactly what makes us special (i.e. better), you don't conform to the standard. Everyone else seems normal because there's so many people that are deficient that that is what has become the generally accepted state. You don't want to be like everyone else.. being different is a blessing, it's a prize, it's a gift... being different means you're not like every other plebe on this planet, it makes you unique. Most people are the way they are because they follow other people's examples because they're not intelligent or coherent enough or willful enough to be their own person..being different only means that you don't conform to societies normalities... but who is to say what is normal and what isn't, maybe it's us who are normal and everybody else that isn't....
Absolutely is. To not be forgotten, be different, do you know ? Imagine this world with everyone being the same. Boring, right ? The difference - you, color this world. Always remember that and be proud of who you are, never change. "If you are lucky enough to be different, never change." Taylor Swift said that.
Everybody has different features emotionally and physically you are never different of left behind because you have a weakness or a part of you that makes you different. Different is good because everybody that is the same is weird and doesn't have the qualities you have because you think differently, feel differently, and act differently!
Everyone is different and unique in their own way. In our society today, being special is considered a bad thing, repressed. It is important to remember that being individual should be celebrated. Try connecting to people of similar interests, and I'm sure you'll soon discover you're not as "different" as you may have thought :)
It is perfectly normal. Or i would go ahead and say it is the rule of nature that every one is different. To site a simple example do you find even two leaves of a tree being exact replica of one another? You would not find. Same thing is with people. Every one is different, every one is special, Some people may pretend to be like others but it can never be reality.
yes,it is okay to be different from everyone.you have to be confident and positive.go with the flow.
Everyone is different and unique in their own way. You should not worry about that. Focus on being yourself and love yourself.
Human beings are very diverse!! We are all different in many ways, and at the same time, we are similar to each other in many ways. If you feel that you are very different from everyone else and that bothers you, then look around and find similarities between you and the people around you. I'm sure you will find a lot! But if you enjoy being different, then enjoy it! You deserve to be special.
What is different? Different depends on what the norm is. So, what is normal? No one is exactly the same, so no one is "normal". We are all "different". We are unique, and can be whoever we want to be.
Everyone is different and thats perfectly okay! The definition of 'normal' is different for everyone. Being comfortable and happy in yourself is what matters!
Every single person is unique and that's what makes us great. It's good to stand out from the crowd.
I am sure it is normal. Everyone is unique and there is not a single pair of people that would be the same. Naturally, everything has it's pros and cons, but you have to be more optimistic about it. You are unique :)
Of course it its. Being different is amazing. Now being just another normal person, that, that is scary.
Everyone is unique. We all have celebrations, challenges and experiences that makes us who we are. There are no two alike. We should celibate each others differences.
NO! You are special! Celebrate it, darling! Enjoy it, and watch other people discover you (in their different ways) ^^. Different is better. Different is attractive!
Everyone has their own body shape and personality type. Just because your's may not fit into the niches of those around you, doesn't mean it is any less spectacular.
Yes, everyone is different from everyone else and why not be different? Its fun. Be yourself because no one else can.
Everyone is different, and what is perceived as the norm isn't the same for every person. Are you comfortable with who you are? Are you happy with your life?
Of course it is! I know what it's like to be an "outcast". I know that it's hard, but keeping your head up will help you to stand up to bullies and even make new friends!
yeah its normal everyone is unique in this world so its alright to be unique different than others love yourself
Everyone is special and different in their own ways. So yes it is normal to be different from everyone else.
It is normal for you to be different from everyone else because no one is the same, we have different ethnic backgrounds, religions we come from, different food preferences, likes and dislikes and even different style of outfits to speaking different languages and our smartness and where we may fall as well as different trigger points can arise too.
Ofcourse it is!In some or the other way,we are all different from each other.We are all special and unique and we are all wonderful in our own different ways!And then why do we fit in when we were all born to stand out?You as an individual are different and amazing,just keep being you!
Everyone is unique. Anomalies and normality are just concepts. You are different and special and that is nothing to be embarassed of.
Everyone's different everyone is special and unique in their own way so don't ever think your nothing.
