Counseling On Demand

Apr 25, 2018

Here is another decision making technique that helps us get a good idea of what we need to do even when there is a lot of things weighing in on us.

Write a letter to yourself as the "older, wiser self".  Think about a successful place in your life five or ten years down the road.  Picture yourself in a new home, with the kind of life you're looking forward to.  Then as that person, start with "Dear Self..."

As you write this letter, 

Acknowledge feelings, circumstances, and individuals in your life.  Use language like "I remember feeling... I remember this place... I remember not knowing what do to..." etc.

Speak to your qualities.  "I remember how my hard work paid off in college... I remember that time I thought I couldn't do it but I did... I remember that time I overcame my fears...".

Write about the solution.  "So what I decided was..." This will help you explore potential solutions and decisions.
