Why I can’t go to therapy.
Excuses for not going to counseling.
So something’s not right in your life. Relationships are a mess, you feel down in the dumps and things just aren’t working out.
Maybe you should talk to somebody, maybe even a professional.
But who wants to go to a therapist?
Listen I understand and I appreciate your reasons for not calling a therapist. In fact I have listed some of the excuses that people use to avoid seeking help.
Let’s go over some of them and let me try to persuade you to get the help you need.
- It’s painful.
Yes therapy can be painful. But is carrying the pain around with you everyday worth it not to seek help from a therapist?
Breaking your leg is painful. Is it worth walking around on a broken leg if the doctor might cause a little more pain to fix your leg? The doctor will set the leg so that it will heal properly.
Therapy might hurt but therapy also helps heal the pain you’re feeling and helps you reduce pain you might have in the future.
***Is there something deeper going on here?
What is really keeping you away from counseling? Is there guilt, or shame or even pride in your life that is keeping you away from feeling better and more in control of your life?
Do you want things to be the same in 6 months or a year?
You really need to do what needs to be done to get your life back. Therapy is worth the time and effort it really is.
