Self-help is something that I have actively talked about and supported for some time. In the past, I have talked about the benefits of self-help, and what you should consider if you are thinking about this process. I must also tell you that there are some mistakes that you can end up making if you are thinking about trying self-help, or you are already trying that. These mistakes can cost you a lot, so it is best if you should avoid them.
If you want to learn more about self-help, or Christianity for that matters, Jay Depoy has a lot of amazing articles written on both. As for now, I think it is best if we just look at some of the mistakes that you should avoid when trying self-help. So, without further ado, let’s go ahead and have a look, shall we?
Not Being True to Yourself
No one is going to tell you that the self-help journey will have a lot of bumps along the way. This is something that you should definitely keep in mind. What you should also keep in mind is that during that process, you have to be honest and true to yourself; whatever you are running away from is strong enough to pull you back in, and that is not something I would suggest.
Not Seeking Help
I have said it before, and I am saying it again; it is fine to seek help even when you are trying to help yourself. Seeking help is only for the sake of aiding you even further, so it is only natural that you want someone’s professional input in your overall situation. If you think things might be a bit too hard on you, just go ahead and seek professional help and I can assure you that it will be good.
