You might feel the same way as I did when I finally started getting help-
Scared, Confused, Unsure,
I was there but finding help was the best decision I have ever made. When you first walk into your therapists office, your heart is beating, you just want to turn around.
If your over 18, it’s easier to find a licensed therapist, theirs websites like goodtherapy.org and Psychology Today.
When you’re under 18, like I was when I was seeking help, it can be much scarier. You have to go through your parents first. Your parents should be understanding, it’s hard, the worst they can say is no, but you have to remain positive regardless. Just like with any goals in life, no matter how difficult it is, the best rule of thumb, is to try until you eventually succeed, and to stay strong.
It may seem generic to give the cliche “just try harder” advice, especially when you’re already seeking emotional support and assistance, but a piece of advice that is more important to be given when it comes to emotional support.
Something to always remember is that your therapist will never judge you. They probably have seen dozens of people in similar situations to you. You are not alone. They want to be there to help you, and if you don’t feel like you’re connecting to you’re connecting with your therapist, they wont be offended if you want to find somebody new. They might actually give you a to referral to someone they know.
Always remember to never loose motivation, keep going, trust me, once you find help, things will get better.
Never give up, love,
