My friend Christin wrote a great blog post about therapy a little while ago. She shared some of her experience with therapy, and then talked about her opinion of therapy and the bad wrap that it generally gets. I loved her analogy in the second paragraph, where she says that when you say you're going to the doctor, no one assumes that you're dying. But when you say you're going to a therapist, some people assume that you're crazy! That is just not true. I have to agree with Christin saying that seeking help for stress or other emotional issues means that you are emotionally healthy. If there are things going on in your life that need fixing, and you don't know how to do it on your own, a therapist can be an objective person who can give you great advice. So, for those of you who may be thinking about therapy, please give it a try. It might help you change your life.
