  1. Counselors and therapists can be very helpful, especially if you do a little research on the different approaches so you can decide which is best for you. Personally, I really don’t like cognitive behaviorists, for instance. They seem to only treat the symptoms, not the causes, and generally seem unhappy themselves. 🙂

    The tightrope you walk with a therapist is that you need to trust them, but whatever it is inside you that needs the help will resist. The closer you get to it, the more it will resist. It will start to tell you that your therapist is wrong for you, so you have to keep that in mind.

    1. That is so true, resistance is futile. The whole point of getting help is to be open to it and you are so right trust is a big factor. Thanks so much for the comment :))

  2. Gail,
    I know that the right counselor can make all the difference… and I am so glad that you are so strong and can share that with others. Knowing we are not alone makes all the difference sometimes too!
    I want with all my heart, for you to know, whatever the big thing looming around you is, no matter what the chaos, you really are not alone, either.

    1. thanks Amber-lee, I think I might need to plan my dream vacation to Alaska and come spend some time with you. I’m gonna have to work out a five year plan, save up, take some time off and plan to do it. I’ve always wanted to see killer whales, the icebergs, go dog sledding and so much more.
      I think that type of adventure would be fantabulous.

  3. Hi Gail, this is an amazing post… I wrote about something similar about this, that damn fear we have that holds us back… this is the year I am going to get past some of those barriers… I can’t wait to see how you do. I would love to have counseling to figure out why I have held myself back too. I will have to read how it goes for you and what you learn 🙂
