Therapists are just people that you pay to pretend like they care about you.

Here are some tips on how to make a sincere apology
1. Accept that you are wrong and did hurt the other person.
2. Ask them if they are ready for your apology. This shows them that you respect their feelings.
3. Make them feel heard and let them know how you do understand you hurt them. Make sure to phrase it the right way. (Ex: I鈥檓 sorry about my actions and how they hurt you. I will make truly make efforts to change my actions in the future.)
In order to sincerely apologize, it鈥檚 important that you make efforts to fix your behavior because you don鈥檛 want to make them feel that way again. Afterwards, ask for their forgiveness. It鈥檚 okay to be wrong and make mistakes however, it鈥檚 best to own up to them and not purposely put that person in such a position again.
On a last note, remember that all relationships (family, friends or significant other) go through ups and downs and communication is key. It鈥檚 okay to mess up but ignoring your feelings will only make things worse. If you feel like the other person is purposely hurting you, ignoring your feelings, making no efforts to change their actions, or sincerely apologize, it is a sign that they don鈥檛 respect you.

Rest day
Sometimes I just can鈥檛. I just can鈥檛 get out of bed or I just can鈥檛 do that assignment. It鈥檚 difficult because I can鈥檛 explain it to other people and I don鈥檛 want to have to.聽
Often I鈥檒l switch to my low-energy mode, but sometimes it鈥檚 already too late. It blindsided me and there simply wasn鈥檛 time to preform that kind of self care. And then I鈥檒l want to beat myself up for being聽鈥榰seless and lazy鈥, and it only worsens the episode, meaning it could last for days.聽
So what I do is I decide that I clearly just need a day of serious rest, a break, and I label that day a rest day. If it鈥檚 necessary, I鈥檒l later send out emails/messages excusing my absence saying that I was sick (I had a formal letter from my therapist for a while that I could just re-use when supporting documentation was absolutely necessary).聽
Giving myself permission to rest for that day, usually means I can function the next day, albeit in low-energy mode, and that鈥檚 usually enough to get things back on track. (Part of a rest day is just being gentle with myself and doing whatever i feel like. If that鈥檚 doing nothing or napping, fine. However if I feel like reading, cooking or folding clothes, that鈥檚 also fine. Usually when things are bad enough to need a rest day, I don鈥檛 really get out of bed. But it helps to just follow whims to get things up and running again).聽

TW: attempted su*cide
So today marks exactly a year since I last attempted suicide and honestly I'm so bloody proud of myself. I don't think I've gone an entire year before without trying to off myself since I was about 14 years old (I'm now 20). Yet this past year, I've made an insane amount of progress with my mental health, like, I can't even begin to explain how much I've improved in just this past year. Literally all by myself as well. I'm still a tad fucked, but I'm a million times better and a million times more stable than I was a year ago today and I couldn't be happier. It's been horrible, painful, exhausting and extremely difficult, but I've done it. I've really improved. And entire year without even trying to end my life. I'm really proud.
I just really wanted to share this because I'm so so so freaking proud of myself, I can't even properly express how much.

Inherited poverty聽

Children or adolescents from low-income families, whose parents had lower levels of education, were at higher risk of having less well-developed brains than the individuals from middle- or high-income families with better-educated parents. Interestingly, there was little difference between the brains of high- versus average- income individuals. So the proverbial silver spoon doesn't give you a brain advantage, but being born entirely spoonless definitely puts you at risk for a disadvantage.
A 2014 paper from the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child at Harvard University found that stresses related to poverty -- "overcrowding, noise, substandard housing, separation from parent(s), exposure to violence" -- can generate neurotoxins that damage a child's developing brain.

I鈥檓 Menahal, a licensed mental health counselor based in NYC. I鈥檝e had the privilege of working with individuals, couples, and families to overcome a range of concerns including mental health struggles, rocky marriages, addictions, and trauma, to name a few. I believe that we all have exactly what we need to heal within us. This belief drives my work where I collaborate with my clients to uncover their innate ability to not only understand them, but also heal emotional wounding to create room for growth and thriving.
I鈥檝e worked in both mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities, which have helped me understand the prevalence of trauma and its profound affect on both mental and physical health. I鈥檝e learned how deeply we can be impacted by adverse experiences, and in turn may unintentionally engage in patterns of behavior that cause us to remain stuck, whether personally, professionally, or in our relationships (or lack thereof). I鈥檝e trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR, two powerful and effective modalities for the treatment of trauma, to enhance my work with clients who are seeking help for deep emotional wounding and/or traumatic experiences. With loneliness eating away at so many of us, I seek to create a means of safe connection where difficult experiences and emotions can be processed and released.
I am passionate about seeing couples succeed in their relationship goals, whether enhancing an already solid relationship or getting 鈥渦nstuck鈥 from recurring fighting patterns. When working with couples, I utilize the skills gained through training in the Gottman method as well as in EFT. I鈥檝e had the honor of teaming with the Gottman Institute to author the Islamic Reference Guide for the Gottman Method, a companion to The New York Times bestseller The Seven Principles of Making Marriage Work.
