- Wedding: October 2011
I have been having a rough time lately. I have been under a lot of stress and pressure between school, work, wedding planning, etc and am having trouble dealing. I had a falling out with some of my friends, so I don’t really have anyone to talk to. I also feel like I am going through a big stage in my life, things are really changing fast. I’ll be married soon, starting a family, etc.
I also had some family issues a few months ago that did not get resolved (basically just pretend like nothing happened now). I carry around a lot of baggage and have a REALLY hard time letting things go (also still VERY angry about what happened with my friends), and also telling people directly how I feel (I am a people pleaser, I just want you to be happy no matter how I feel).
I don’t think I am depressed; I don’t have trouble getting out of bed, I have energy, I work out and carry on with my daily tasks. I just feel like I am on a roller coaster lately. One minute I am in tears, and then an hour later I’m feeling just fine.
I have been debating seeing a therapist. If for nothing else, just to get an unbiased opinion of everything I am feeling. But I’m not sure it will be worth it. Am I just overreacting? Does therapy really help?
