Therapy: One of the Best Decisions You May Ever Make


Therapy: One of the Best Decisions You May Ever Make


Living everyday life can mean having your own share of joys and laughter, as well as tears and miseries. Everyone experiences the ups and downs of life. You may find that you can manage these ups and downs quite well, though there may be times that you feel you need some help being able to feel functional and fulfilled. If you are totally immersed in your own world of grief, depression, anger, anxiety, relationship problems, or fighting a relapse during recovery, you may feel like your chest is so full it could burst. You may need some assistance in working past these intense feelings.


The Value of Talking

If you feel like bottling your feelings inside, you may not be alone. Many individuals report feeling the same way, no wanting to bother their family or friends, but knowing that it is not healthy to keep their feelings to themselves. These feelings may even bother you to the point that they affect your daily life and functioning. Bottling your feelings may even affect your sleep patterns, eating, performance in school or work, relationships, etc. This may even lead to development of depression and/or anxiety.

While talking about your feelings may not necessarily treat intrusive symptoms or make your problems go away, it can help you to feel better. Knowing that someone is willing to listen can be very healing. When you begin to feel better, you can begin to think more clearly, allowing you to make more balanced and appropriate decisions.


Why Seek a Therapist

Of course you can always talk to family and/or friends, though you may feel concerned that you would be misunderstood or that family or friends may have difficulty staying impartial if your emotional problems involve another family or close friend. This may be a good opportunity to seek out a therapist.

Your therapist will have a greater ability to remain impartial, should your concern involve marital or family conflicts. You can also trust them to keep matters private. If you have things to address that may cause you embarrassment, or prefer to be kept under wraps, a therapist who abides by their code of ethics and confidentiality may be the best person to confide in.


Finding the Right Therapist

There can be many benefits to therapy, often individuals will report experiencing relief due to “just feeling heard”, though there is far more to therapy than talking. When you find the right therapist you can begin to address factors that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential and may even feel empowered to share your feelings so that you may function more effectively in your everyday life. Don’t allow your feelings to hold you hostage.
