If you are considering therapy, are suffering, or are not satisfied with your life, important questions to ask yourself include “do you find yourself held back in life by your depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorder, low self-esteem, etc? Are you waiting until you’re ‘better’ to begin certain goals, be more social, be a more loving partner/mother/friend, or start that exercise program you know would be good for you? Are you confused by behaviors that you keep engaging in that you are not good for you, but you can’t seem to stop? Have you been able to give up an unhealthy coping mechanism, only to have it replaced by another unhealthy one?”
If the answer is “yes”, to any of the above then starting therapy is absolutely the first step in the right direction.
