Bruce Springsteen was not always in control of his life. The Boss reveals in his memoir, “Born to Run,” how he struggled with depression at different periods. He admitted going through a difficult time while making “Wrecking Ball,” his 2012 album. He described the feeling as a ”freight train bearing down …” and added that he saw his first psychotherapist three decades ago.
Recognizing the Problem
The first step toward resolving any kind of problem is admitting that it exists. This does not come easy for most men because it implies a submission to defeat. Hopefully, Springsteen’s revelation would encourage more men who feel isolated and stuck in life to get men’s counseling. Denver clinics like ours offer specialized counseling that addresses your specific struggles at home, at work — life, in general.
The Boss’s disclosure is important because it highlights a few issues about men. One, men do struggle with depression. Two, the struggle will not always manifest in an obvious way. And three, getting support is not a weakness, but rather a decisive action to regain control of life.
Your problem does not need to be as distressing as Springsteen’s. But it is still disruptive to your relationships and your routines, and keep you from reaching your goals. Without any person to talk to about your struggles and the general anxiety you are feeling, the weight of it all will crush you eventually. Seeking counselling of life coaching will prevent something in your life from giving in.
