Unresolved Past Issues

Unresolved issues are issues from the past that you have a hard time coming to terms with or moving past – or current unresolved issues that are keeping you from moving forward.  When we fail to resolve (or at least work through these issues), a part of us remains stuck.  We might find ourselves ruminating on things from the past, “reliving” them on a daily basis, or wishing things had gone differently. Alternatively, we might also instead choose to suppress those things without fully realizing the impact they have had on who we are and how we behave.  Unresolved issues come in many forms, and may include:

  • Regrets regarding past decisions
  • Unfinished business or unresolved conflict with family members, friends, or significant others
  • Past incidents of physical, sexual, emotional, or neglect-related abuse
  • Painful memories
  • Having lost a loved one without the opportunity to say what you felt was needed to say
  • Wishing things had gone differently in life
  • Any other lingering personal or professional problem that has yet to be fully addressed
  • Anxiety, sadness, or ways of thinking that get in the way of living the kind of life you’d like to live

If you’re considering starting counseling to deal with some unresolved issues, you can send us a message or you can call or text 727-258-5231.
