Last week in the podcast, I talked a little about how I started the therapy. It is strange for me to share, because in college my mother BF talked about this just as she talked about something else. I was taught that everything is in order, so I did not hesitate when I thought that I needed help.
You do not need to experience injuries to justify getting help.
You can have a normal childhood … and struggle with healthy relationships.
You may have parents who loved you … but do not love yourself.
Perhaps you have never been in abusive relationships … but tolerate crappy behavior from the people you meet.
You don't have to be super low or overweight … have an eating disorder.
You can be religious … and deceive someone you love.
You can be kind to your friends and family … but say cruel things to yourself.
There are no prizes to solve your problems alone.
And hurting people hurting people … So if nothing else helps itself, it will help the people you love.
If you need a friend, a therapist, God, medicine, a puppy … I encourage you to make it happen.
And I know that some resources are not available to everyone. I was very fortunate that I was able to go to therapy because I had medical insurance at a college and I just needed to pay for it. In many places there are inexpensive resources – google your city and inexpensive mental health services to see your options.
