Have you ever seen one of those characters on tv that's been in therapy for decades at a time? Well, I'm the real deal. I've been sitting in a chair spilling my guts out to a professional since the age of 8. And you know what? I love it. I like having a therapist who I can share my hopes and dreams and frustrations with. It's nice to have a professional put things into a different perspective that I can reflect on in times of need.
I don't feel shame at all for seeking someone out and getting help. I feel good.
