Everyone Should See a Therapist
posted on October 2, 2012 | by Amanda Holstein
Just like exercising, getting enough sleep, and eating your vegetables, seeing a therapist should be part of everyone’s effort to live a healthy life. You don’t realize how many assumptions you’ve had about the world until you see a therapist. And you don’t realize how you actually have the power to change those assumptions, and ultimately, the way you think. It can be extremely empowering, mind blowing, and life changing. Even if you think the way you’ve been living your life is great and has been working for you, seeing a therapist can only make it better. It’s so important to stop and reflect on yourself. We’re girls, so we do a lot of self reflection as it is, but really opening your mind to other ways of thinking, is not something we do very often. And it’s not something that’s easy to do on our own.
Have you ever seen a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist? What do you think about the whole process? Would you ever see one?
