I Am Starting Therapy Soon
I used to go to therapy regularly, but I haven’t now for several years. This is because I have always had this sense of independence where I start to feel like I can take care of my emotions on my own. After having a bad breakup and two subsequent suicide attempts, I realized that this is more than I can handle. This is why I talked to my primary care physician the other day and asked if I could get a referral so I can see a therapist. I am a little afraid of what is going to come up, but I know this is what needs to be done.
Many people are afraid to see therapists
Many people are afraid to see therapists because they think it means they are weak or they are crazy. While part of me used to feel this way, I think it is more about letting someone in and sharing your emotions. They are professional, and they can teach you how to handle them better than you have been thus far. I know it may take a lot of sessions until I am feeling 100%, but that is better than nothing. The long road ahead is one I am trying to embrace.
