2013 Year of the Snake….Fear of em or Love of em?

The estimated reading time for this post is 134 seconds

My sister Julie has had problems with snake(s) in her basement during the summer months in the past. She has actually learned how to deal with it rather admirably. I’m not sure if she had one last year or not, but I didn’t hear about it. Julie knows how to save em and send em packing! Here’s a great article about What to Do About Snakes [if you have ’em in your house.]

There’s no justification for the persecution of these animals!

The point of this blog is not only to point out this is the year of the snake, but it is also to pay attention to what fears some people have. When I work with a client or assess an individual, it is likely that some type of fear, resentment, “issue”, or negative feelings are brought to the surface.

Therefore, it is important to make note of what fears [irrational or not] are part of a person’s daily living. By the way, snakes are great garden predators and only can benefit your garden (including their droppings are excellent fertilizer since their prey is so well digested)!

Fear exists only in your mind and only in the future

Fear can be defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Ultimately, all rehabilitation counselors have the same goal. That is to help clients and those who matter to the client cope and heal by altering their focus in life. We help others understand that although things may have altered dramatically, deep down, the person is still the same – a human with unique fantasies and fears, hopes and dreams, achievements and disappointments.

By working together to come to an understanding of the client’s abilities and limitations, rehabilitation counselors are able to help them work through the various stages of loss….. and emerge on the other side with a fresh outlook on life and the determination to make it through whatever challenges the disability may throw their way.

Will this be the Year to Address Your Fear?

I am a fearful of The Wrath Mother Nature…..when she exudes her wrath upon Earth, being relentless and there’s no stopping her. But clearly all I can do when she strikes is to be prepared.

Make sense? Be prepared, get help and know what you can do to help yourself and your family if fear gets in your way of daily living.
