What makes therapy worth trying even if you don't have a big reason to

People seem to think your need a big reason to start therapy, but is that so? Why would anyone start therapy?

Phycological therapy has had a bad reputation for long enough now. It seemed as if you had to have gone through a personal tragedy to look for counseling – something similar to using a band-aid on an open emotional wound and once you get over that particular event, you could stop your analysis. I'm here to tell you that therapy is much more than that and it can help you live a happier life.

We all, to different degrees, have aspects of our lives that could be improved. While a lot of people go to therapy because of a life crisis, this shouldn’t be so. There are several valid reasons why you can start therapy. You might seek therapy simply because you feel you need a little extra help to understand yourself better, work in areas that you find difficult, and improve your abilities to cope with stressful situations –and what stresses a person can vary from person to person. 

The best thing about therapy is that it anticipates crisis. In fact, going to therapy before a critical event occurs offers you the possibility of having more tools to manage a crisis. For instance, maybe you have never noticed that you are not good at setting boundaries, and it is not particularly something that affects you on a daily basis because you still haven't bumped into someone that made you feel really uncomfortable. Going to therapy will allow you to identify this type of behavior and you'll avoid being in a position where setting your boundaries will leave you extremely exposed. Or better yet, you will realize who are the ones around your circle that are more likely to overstep your boundaries and you will take special measures with them. 

See? This is what I mean when I say therapy allows you to live better.

The bottom line

Especially after the pandemic, the chances are that you will benefit from therapy. I know that life seems to have gone back to normal but the effects of a year in confinement and months of diving into uncertainty cannot be underestimated.

It is normal to feel confused, scared or uncertain about your future at times and therapy will help your cope with those feelings or any other setbacks in life.

Asking for help is not something you should be ashamed of. Seeking counseling is actually one of the smartest things you can do. 

Think of therapy as one tool to practice self-care and self-love.
