Finding Balance

Dr Oberdan Marianetti

Psychologist and Clinical Sexologist

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

We live in a world where standards of beauty, intelligence and success are impressed upon us. Some of us struggle, fight and stand confidently in our beliefs. Some of us just… follow.

It becomes a concern when there is an imbalance between societal expectations and our desires. When this imbalance becomes unbearable, one may find themselves with increasing psychological stress. Mindset may become negative. Behaviours may become self-destructive. One may lose their self- identity.
