I’ve been wanting to try therapy for a long time now. I think that I might be depressed and maybe a little anxious too. And I really believe that therapy could help, but I’m having trouble taking that leap. I guess I’m embarrassed about friends and family finding out, and even a little embarrassed about opening up about these problems to a therapist. What should I do? How can I push past these reservations and finally get the help that I need.
Seeking a counselor is very courageous. If you think about it – it is a neutral party who is objective and can see things that sometimes we cannot see in ourselves yet. A sounding board that is safe without an agenda. I also thought why aren’t my friends and co workers feeling anxious or depressed…you never know…the could feel just like you. Just make the call…it really helped me. Best wishes.
