Therapy Can Help
October 25, 2011 in finding yourself
My family has always utilized the source of psychotherapy to help us get through tough times. Over the years when I tell people I’ve done therapy, I get a lot of weird looks. People tend to think therapists are for people who have mental illnesses or serious problems. The truth is psychotherapy can be for anyone who simply feels confused and feel like they can benefit from exceptional advice. They’re specialized to help us sort out our emotions and can help us feel really great and not so alone being a teenager.
It can be seriously scary to go in and just start talking to someone about your life, I know. But overcoming that first initial fear is totally worth it. I remember a couple years ago I hadn’t done psychotherapy for awhile and I was pretty nervous and had to focus on my breathing to calm myself down. After my session I felt so much better, and I totally deflated the fear and wasn’t scared to do it again. When confront our fears like this it provides such a weight off our shoulders, and the fear no longer can accumulate. The best stress reliever is to confront challenges. I know it’s not easy, think about how you will feel absolutely wonderful after doing so!
