The term ‘young adult’ is in itself an oxymoron. It’s a figure of speech that joins two opposite words together – “young” and “adult”! And this explains exactly how a person belonging to this age group (20-26) feels.
“What am I doing with my life?”, “Should I stay in this relationship?”, “Am I taking the right career decision?”
Or deeper questions like: “Am I ‘good’ enough?” “How do I fit in?! Will I ever??” ,“Why am I still immature?”, “Why am I still so hurt by memories from my childhood?” If questions like these are what you find yourselves thinking about often, then read on:
Sometimes you wonder about these things, right? If you’re in your 20s, you know exactly the feeling. The stress of making the ‘correct choice’ is an unavoidable one. You can postpone addressing these questions, but let’s face it, that just adds to your stress and keeps you away from living a relaxed, fuller life.
As children and teens, you may have had people directly or indirectly telling you what to do and what not to. Sometimes this pointing out may have helped, at other times it may have simply left you irritated. With college though, there’s more freedom, and less instructions. But what happens post college? You might be going through some relationship dilemma, finding a partner, finding a job, wondering whether you are on the right track in terms of your career, wondering about how to take your life ahead.. Yes, you may be starting to realize as young adults, how much you are truly on your own, and the depth of what these words –“being on your own” can mean! This is where therapy can come in as help.
Seeking Help Through Group Therapy
We have devised a group therapy program for young adults aimed at addressing these questions in a freer, more deeper manner and making choices that are more thought through and meaningful. In an Open Group, you can find space to discuss issues you may be shy to talk about because they may seem small or impractical, but are truly bothering you. You can stop feeling so alone, or even lonely in your situation.
Gradually the group members, with the help of the therapist, would be able to understand themselves better, gain more clarity about the nature of the crises they face, and what they can do to work towards resolution. Know more about the nature and principles of Group Therapy
