I’m still not quite sure how it happened. Maybe it was the fact that I was sitting outside and soaking up the afternoon summer sun or maybe I was just feeling particularly zen, but last week, I felt all sorts of philosophical about things! So much so that I posted these deep thoughts on therapy on social media while I was waiting for my monthly therapy session to start…
Off to my monthly therapy session. I’ve been in therapy for 14 years and although I’m proud of the progress I’ve made, I still need this monthly check-in. I could get down on myself about that, but I don’t. Because there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s healthy and healing. Taking care of yourself is a beautiful thing. #BeBraveBeYou #MentalHealthAwareness
It’s been a long road, obviously, but I do feel like I’m getting to a better place. So perhaps that’s positive? Take it from me, friends, there is NO SHAME in going to therapy and taking care of your mental health. It’s actually the most beautiful gift you could ever give yourself. You deserve it, don’t you think? xoxo
