30 Things I Learned In 3 Years Of Therapy

3 years ago I walked into my therapist's office for the first time. I'd been advised by a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist to check into a mental health unit which I declined, so following that I was sent to the one and only therapist that they had available at their own public facility. It was rough, I was considered a danger to myself by a doctor, and some weirdo, and then told by this new person, a random mental health counselor, that there wasn't anything wrong with me. I was so mad, little did I know that she'd help me turn my life around, forever. I'm no longer the person I was when I walked in there, I've grown so much since then. Things are not perfect today but I'm well on my way to become the healthiest and happiest version of myself. I'm not gonna lie, I didn't think I'd still be in therapy now. I'm trying to be patient, to be at peace with my journey and to allow myself to heal at my own pace. As a reminder of how far I've come I made a list of 30 things I learned in therapy in the past 3 years. I hope you can learn something from it too and that if you are having a hard time, it will help you remember that you can make a change and if not now, later. Don't make yourself feel guilty for things you can't do, I promise it's not going to rain forever.
