Calcium Deficiency?

If you had a friend who had a calcium deficiency would you call them weak?

I doubt it. We would encourage the person to go to a doctor to receive the care needed to restore their body. If they avoided the doctor or to address this area of need we would consider them foolish. 

That is how I view counseling. People often view people who go to counseling or who need counseling as weak. 

The reality is there is a certain way that God made each of us to thrive. Those that go to counseling are aware that there is a deficiency in their life that needs to be addressed. I see many people who go about life thinking they are “strong” and are unaware of their deficiencies. These are the same people that discourage counseling to other people.
