Celebrate Pride Month

Supporting Loved Ones and Embracing Your True Self

Join Family & Personal Counseling as we extend our support and celebrate Pride Month. We reached out to FPC Therapist Conor Ohland, LMHC to give advice and insights on how to make this world a more empowering place.
Being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community can mean many different things for an individual person, although a common meaning for many is being able to live your true self. If you feel as though your own identity has been something you have struggled with or have difficulty confronting, don’t be afraid because this is just a natural life occurrence. To define identity is to not have a forever definitive answer of who you are, life is constantly changing so let yourself change with it. 
Feeling comfortable with yourself does take time, but that is also to say you have to take the steps to establish that comfort. There are a couple of ways one can start the process of their own self-discovery:

Speak to a Therapist 

Therapy is a tool that can provide benefits towards having an unbiased perspective on what is unfolding in life and provide what kind of guidance is necessary at that moment. 

Do Some Research

Read into different LGBTQIA+ stories, definitions of terminology, ways others have been able to find their own identity, and most importantly doing research on yourself through building self-awareness. 

Try Journaling 

Maybe it’s been said time and time again, but writing your thoughts down can be a very constructive way to learn about yourself. It allows your mind to slow down to the pace of your writing, to focus on this one topic in that exact moment to bring out a sense of clarity. 

Celebrate Pride Month

Take some time to celebrate Pride Month and reflect on your role in the LGBTQIA+ community. Whether that means supporting loved ones, finding your place in a new community, or embracing your true self, you contribute to a more inclusive and affirming world. Remember, FPC is here to support you every step of the way and are proud to support such a radiant community.
