So last week I didn’t have therapy and let me tell you, I did alright. I mean I socialized more than I normally would which is a plus but draining for me. Anyways I used to have a friend who was always on the fence about going to therapy. The reason I went was because a close friend of mine told me to try one session, that was it. They didn’t push me at all but just encouraged. So I did and here we are now, I’m going off campus but am still going to therapy.
At first it was boring and I thought I could solve everything. I thought I could fix everything in my life but I couldn’t. I got angry at myself for not having everything together. If you guys remember I was really dreading summer therapy. I tried it out and ended up really liking my current therapist. It’s not a huge commitment maybe an hour of your day(the only thing is if it’s far away or not) I really like the area I’m in because there’s a whole foods a few blocks away and a bunch of restaurants.
Therapy gives me a time to talk to someone and get a third opinion on stuff. Other times I rant to them about things bothering me. I’ve been trying to push myself but in the right way. Recently I’ve been trying to socialize more but not too much to where I’m drained constantly. That’s one thing I really have to work on so I’m just trying to find that balance. Also reflections, I know it sounds lame but it’s kind of like therapy only it’s for my eyes to see how much I’ve grown. It pretty simple, get a notebook and pen then think and write about things you realized about yourself this month or last month. This helps you think about who you are and who you want to become.
As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!
