Some people ask “why do you go to therapy, you don’t look like there’s anything wrong with you,” to which I reply “do you always wait until there is something wrong to go to the doctor?” My point is that mental health should be seen as preventive care. It should be a top priority for all of us. I can honestly say that I feel so much better in my own skin today than I ever had before because I took my own mental health seriously. Why do we wait until it hurts so much we want to scream, or until something terrible happens in our lives to realize that our thoughts and feelings are important?

Today I went to therapy and I had a conversation with a person who is there to listen to me with whatever it is on my mind, and she has no personal gain in the outcome, and when I left, I felt a weight lifted, as I do every week. What you are feeling IS IMPORTANT! It isn’t dumb to need to talk about that one thing you always say “never mind its nothing.” Today I challenge you to sit and give yourself time to really appreciate everything you feel and experience internally.

Today I went to therapy and I’m not afraid to tell any one that I can’t do it alone… None of us can!
