Confidence To Accept Yourself 

Disclaimer : These are observations made from counseling sessions and shared to create awareness towards supporting Mental Health.

At different life stages , a crisis is often felt in coping with reality; it challenges our daily functioning and ability to be  whole. In the wake of such challenges reality becomes two folded , perceived reality and as it occurs. It is like a cup of tea enjoyed hot or cold depending on the environment !

Having a full cup of TEA ,  comes with interaction in the environment and its reaction is the emotional coping we display. Emotional resilience and strength is having your tea cup full before pouring in another’s cup. Many concepts , training modules and interventions are available online to understand “TEA”

One can share tea with others only when the self understands one’s own
