Positive Thinking

Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile.

A positive person anticipates happiness, health and success, and believes he or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty.

Positive thinking is not accepted by everyone. Some, consider it as nonsense, and scoff at people who follow it, but there is a growing number of people, who accept positive thinking as a fact, and believe in its effectiveness.

It seems that this subject is gaining popularity, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it.

To use it in your life, you need more than just to be aware of its existence. You need to adopt the attitude of positive thinking in everything you do.

If you feel you would benefit from positive thinking then call Star Point Counseling Center at 813-244-1251 to schedule an appointment to see one of our therapists.



Alcohol Controls My Life

What alcohol has to say…

 I’ll invade all your thoughts, I’ll take hostage your soul

I’ll become your new master, in total control

I’ll maim your emotions, I’ll run the whole game

Till your entire existence is crippled with shame.

When you call me I come, sometimes in disguise

Quite often I’ll take you by total surprise.

But take you I will, and just as you’ve feared

Ill want only to hurt you, with no mercy spared.

I bring self destruction, but still you can’t tell

I’ll sweep you through heaven, then drop you in hell,

I’ll chase you forever wherever you go,

And then when I catch you, you won’t even know.

Losing yourself in a relationship

Sometimes, you can try so hard to please someone that you forgot who you were because they came into your life. Being in love isn’t about catering to one person’s needs and it isn’t about following someone else’s path. It’s about doing what is best for both of you, because ultimately, you are one. There are times when opportunities will arise for your partner, so you sacrifice to ensure the greater future for your mutual lives. However, you must know that your partner would one day do the same for you. You should not give up your dreams to be able to remain together. Because the right person won’t hold you back and will sacrifice for you when a solid opportunity comes your way.

An important aspect in not losing yourself in a relationship is making sure that you have time for yourself. You shouldn’t be solely focused on making your significant other happy that you  give up the things that make you who you are or make you happy. You should maintain your hobbies and make time for your own happiness, because being in a relationship doesn’t mean changing who you are.
