    i’d love to see a therapist, sometimes i find it hard to talk to people about certain issues and just anxiety that i have! i’d love the freedom to talk and not feel judged… being able to trust someone like that must be great! but they’re so expensive!! :(

    Amanda I could not agree more! I saw a psychologist during my freshman year of college and it helped me learn so much about myself and how I deal with hardships. I wasn’t at a place of deep despair- just wanted more clarity on how to grieve the loss of a loved one at a young age, how to forgive myself for mistakes in the past and how to move on to accepting myself as I am. I would strongly encourage any and every young woman to seek therapy if they have the time & means.

    Good advice, it’s an eye opener. Yes, even guys go to psychologists sometimes, and there’s a social stigma attached with this that first needs to be overcome. But it’s REALLY worth the time and money for such an interesting and insightful look into your own self, thoughts and feelings. I never walked out a session feeling worse.

    I pay $40 an hour for my therapist (no insurance). There are cheaper options out there, you just have too look for them! Many therapists offer sliding scale payment based on your income.

    i don’t see a therapist, but my husband and i both speak regularly with some pastors at our church, who act as mentors in our lives. they are willing to say the things we may or may not want to hear, but also act as a sounding board for us as we go through life and make decisions.

    it’s such a relief to feel like you don’t have to figure out everything on your own and just “deal.” to me, whoever you choose to talk to (therapist, psychoanalyst, mentor, older-wiser-someone-who-is-not-your-parent and not your best friend), we highly recommend it—it has benefited us so much!!

    I think it makes sense that people should see therapists. Life is such a confusing mess, it can be difficult to find your way alone. A therapist can help, even if you just need someone to talk to.

    I had a total of two therapists – I didn’t enjoy the experience. My male roommate had an even worse time with three of his. I don’t think it’s for everyone – it can be a struggle to find a practitioner who respects your orientation, gender identity, personal politics, lifestyle choices, etc. A real struggle.

    And not everyone can afford one, either.
