    Trust is not always a linear experience, especially for those who have had it broken by people who were meant to instill trust and a sense of protection. It’s okay if you don’t trust your therapist right off the bat. There might also be times that your trust is broken by someone in your everyday life and it might feel like your distrust is leaking back into your relationship with your therapist. Being open with your therapist when you’re feeling some of that can help. Therapy is meant to be your own process and pace, so don’t be disheartened if there are steps forward and backward at times. It’s all part of the healing process.
