Lets Talk It Out.

Perhaps its because I was raised by a psychologist but I believe everyone can benefit from being in therapy. I think there are always underlying issues (that we often aren't even aware of) and causes to the things we do that if we don't work on them and figure them out it will stunt our emotional growth. I always strive to grow as a person, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually, and though I have done a kick ass job (in my opinion) doing this on my own I believe that it would be a disservice to myself if I were to not get an outsiders view. Which is why I start therapy today!! I am so excited and anxious to learn all I can learn, grow as much as I can grow and share as much as I can share. It took me a long time and a lot of searching to find a therapist that I think is a good fit.
side bar: being in therapy is utterly pointless if you #1 dont have a good therapist and #2 don't have a connection with the person.
I was in therapy when I was younger-which in theory was a wonderful idea since I went through a lot at a young age and my dad wanted me to have someone to talk to other than him..and Im sure it would have been very helpful but I didn't totally trust her so I didn't tell her much. 
Sorry Dad..I could probably put a down payment on a house with my wasted therapy payments.

So, at 2pm I will be sitting in this lovely womans office (probably with first date butterflies) hoping for that connection, praying that she understands me and working on explaining what I am looking to gain. 
I don't know if you can tell but I'm pretty freakin excited!

and I'm sure you've been missing the girl so here is your daily dose of cuteness

  1. Good for you! I love counseling and psychology and it makes me so happy when people are not too prideful to seek out that support. We all need that, I agree!! THank God for my mom because she is the most amazing counselor and she is free;0. lol. I hope this counselor is a great fit for you!
