I’m a better person because I started going to therapy.
It has been one of the greatest things I’ve ever done for myself and for the people in my life.
Finding a great therapist isn’t easy. It took me 5 tries over about a year and a half to find mine and I lost hope multiple times during that period.
But now, every Monday, I get an hour to work on me. And I’m better because of it.
I’ve learned how to separate myself from my thoughts and my emotions.
I’m aware of how my words and actions impact other people.
I find myself setting heathy, clear boundaries.
I’m more in touch with how I’m feeling + why I’m feeling that way.
I’ve learned to communicate what’s coming up for me right when it does.
My relationships are more mutually beneficial.
My relationship with Jake feels like we’re in the fucking honeymoon phase all over again.
Hell yeah, I have hard days. There are days that I don’t want to go. There’s days that it sucks. But I keep going back.
Maybe your thing isn’t therapy. Maybe you journal + do self work, maybe you go to Reiki, maybe you have a life coach, or maybe it is therapy.
Emotional stress plays a key role in our health because it can manifest as illness + disease.
The emotional work is just as important as what we eat and how we exercise.
If you needed it – here’s your push to figure out how you can prioritize your emotional wellbeing. We’re in this together 😉
