I’ve been considering therapy on and off for months now but I have yet to take the plunge.
Where I am from and our nationality we are very much a “get on with it” group of people. Therapy is “for addicts, abuse victims, trauma victims and such the like” and I am neither of these people.
I have been raised to consider therapy a real last resort and to be grateful for all I have and considering I am a successful, happy, married woman with a good upbringing I don’t feel like I.. deserve.. therapy, does this make sense? Not only that I am naturally fiercely independent, which only eats into the mindset I have been brought up to believe.
BUT I have issues, that I can’t resolve on my own, I can’t seem to get over and I now feel like are maybe starting to affect my mental health.
I was hoping to get some advice, or experiences maybe from bees who have had that similar mindset they managed to get over. I have took the plunge and contacted a local therapist who called me back, left a VM with times available and this was last week, I can’t bring myself to call her back but I want too.
It’s worth noting I am an advice asshole, I would encourage anyone I love dealing with any issues to seek out therapy yet can’t seem to take my own advice!
