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.

Success is a relative term. We each have our own definition to what success is to us. You need to look at your own definition to see what you need to do to feel successful.

Make a list of things to do that are important to you. Then do them :)

As others have stated, success is a relative term. If you could wake up tomorrow and you would be successful, what would that look like in your mind ? If you know what that is, then it would be fairly easy to know how to “be” successful. For example, if being successful meant having a lot of money to you, then a plan might include researching which jobs make the most money, schooling to get those jobs, etc... If happiness is your goal then you will want to focus on evaluating and working on your relationships with people and plenty of self-care. I would say “feeling” successful is going to come down to being very honest with yourself in how you view success.

Based on my own experiences, being successful in life relies heavily on how you perceive success and what you do to reach it. finding and pursuing the things that make you happy, while being able to benefit everyone around you including yourself is a common way people view success. However, it does not mean that it is the only way to consider yourself to be successful. Find the balance between doing things that benefit you and others. Understanding that seeing yourself progress and seeing yourself grow is a success, resilience is a success, seeing things that represent your growth is success. Dont be too hard on yourself :)
