…with setting your own p(e)ace. Recently I have started seeing a therapist. I tried once before but didn’t connect with the prior therapist. I see my therapist through a Skype type program which I really like. I am comfortable in my won home but still get my sessions. I started seeing a therapist to help keep my emotional reactions to negative things in better perspective and check. This is something I wasn’t able to accomplish on my own and having the help of an unbiased third party has been really nice. I am not saying I am magically fixed but I understand it better now which helps. The reactions, like all things, run deeper then they seem and we started to get into that today. It was the first session I have had that has been emotionally difficult which is why I decided to write about it and share it with anyone reading.
I do think that all people could use some therapy for growth and understanding of yourself, but for some reason until today I have been putting off writing about it and sharing it with our community. I realized that the process is difficult, but worth it and definitely worth sharing. This stigma that getting help in way shows weakness is just silly. Self improvement shows strength and I am proud that I am trying.
I will keep you all posted on my progress and how therapy is going from time to time. I don’t think I am quite ready to share specifics yet because it’s still a little unclear. I do hope that others feel more comfortable with their therapy or go get therapy if they want it. Be proud of your self care and taking steps to grow. I am.
