Tell Us The Most Unforgettable Thing Your Therapist Ever Told You

Inspired by this post from The Cut.

For those who have ever seen a therapist, you know it's one of the most enlightening experiences.

It's hard to imagine how your life operated before seeing them, and how you tackled your personal problems.

Therapists are legit heroes, and we don't know what we'd do without their amazing insight and advice.

Maybe your therapist told you to focus on the positive aspects of your life instead of just the negatives.

My therapist told me that anxious people have tendency to only explore the scary “what ifs” and challenged me to remember that there is also a flip side. What if you excel? What if it is one of the best experiences of your life? What if it changes you in a beautiful way?

Or maybe they suggested that putting yourself first is important and not selfish in the slightest.

When my therapist told me I don’t have to be responsible for everyone in my life and that I could say no when something gets to be too much, it blew my mind. I still struggle with saying no sometimes and realizing its OKAY to prioritize myself, but it gets a bit easier every day.

Or perhaps they taught you to be kinder to yourself.

My therapist told me to act as my brain’s bouncer, refusing entry to negative thoughts. me: I’m ugly & worthless 👊🏼: If you can’t be nice you can take a walk me: Give up writing you suck 💪🏼: I want you to be nice until it’s time to not be nice me: You’re just going to fail 👊🏼:
