No matter what your situation, no matter how desperate things might seem, and no matter what has happened in your past—you can experience a better life. If you are in a place of hurt or pain, know that you aren’t alone. In fact, we live in a time when many people are hurting. Below is a list of some of the problems people like you and me are struggling and dealing with:


Every single year, 1 in 5 people experience clinical depression, which goes beyond mild sadness or the blues. Depression steals life away from both the person who struggles with it and their loved ones. Symptoms of depression can include:

  • Sadness
  • Loss of interest in enjoyable activities
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Change of appetite
  • Insomnia or excessive sleep
  • Slowed physical movements
  • Agitation
  • Decreased energy or fatigue
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Excessive guilt
  • Indecisiveness
  • Inability to concentrate

In Boston, depression can be exacerbated by our busy and time-starved lives, and by the short summers and long, dark winters. Be sure to get the help that you need.


Anxiety is a constant fearful state, accompanied by a feeling of unrest, dread, or worry. Anxiety Is aroused by a number of factors: external situations (viewing the news, a fast-paced lifestyle), physical wellbeing (lack of sleep) and trauma (situations that caused great pain). Here are common symptoms of anxiety:

  • Inability to relax
  • Tense feelings
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dry mouth
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Jumpiness or feeling faint
  • Excessive perspiring
  • Feeling clammy
  • Constant anticipation of trouble
  • Constant feeling of uneasiness

These symptoms can be debilitating. Get the help you need, and consider working with an anxiety therapist at Thrive Boston.

Low Self-Esteem or Self-Worth

Self-esteem refers to an inner sense of value that gives a person resilience. Every person has ideas about their own self-worth. Having good self-esteem does NOT mean being proud or having an overblown “ego.” Rather, it has more to do with confidence and self-respect. Low self-esteem can cause:

  • Feelings of self-hate
  • Believing that one is unworthy or incompetent
  • Refusal to get close to people
  • Belief that one doesn’t deserve supportive relationships
  • Refusal to trust others
  • Inability to accept oneself as special or unique

Poor self-esteem is often the result of prolonged periods of negative feedback in a person’s life. This results in deep wounds and emotional pain. This makes working with a Thrive Boston therapist incredibly beneficial, as they can help you to improve your self-esteem and heal those wounds.

Relationship Problems and Loneliness

We feel more isolated today than ever before. Communication issues, anger, dependency, jealousy, adultery, uncertainty about a relationship’s future. These are just a few things that can cause serious strife in a relationship.

Not to mention that today, people are finding that they feel completely alone, even in a large city, such as Boston, MA. The problem of isolation gets even worse when we work long hours, have moved several times, or when our social support system has left us. Sometimes, working through these relationship or loneliness issues takes expert help. Fortunately, the therapists at Thrive Boston are ready to help.
